In celebration of the greatest athletic achievement by a man on a psychedelic journey…
I just watched the September Issue which quite a few people had suggested that I see. I initially thought it was going to be another Devil Wears Prada type of film not realising that it was a documentary!
So I finally gave in and watched it on a streaming site after stumbling across a link on a friends facebook wall, I’ll give it ago, I thought…
However I just didn’t see the appeal of the film, was anyone else completely bored to death by it? Maybe it’s just that I’m not interested in that side of fashion.
It makes the fashion world look boring (it kind of is, right?) and all the people in it seemed so shallow and unattractive (not physically, just mentally). I was surprised at how “normal” (and not normal) Anna Wintour is but the only person I really found myself rooting for was Grace Coddington. A former 60s model, now creative director of Vogue.
The other thing that attracted my interest from time to time was the photoshoots (especially the 1920s Parisian-themed one!), because, let’s face it we only buy Vogue for the pretty pictures, I’ve only ever managed to read a whole copy of Vogue cover to cover and that was on a really long road trip.
Anyway the whole point of this is that The September Issue is a boring film and I don’t ever want to work for Vogue (like Wintour’s Daughter – not that I’d ever get the opportunity…) I’m not sure I want to work in fashion fashion. Style is what I’m into…
Go and See
THE MUSEUM OF EVERYTHING if you live in London, I went last week. It’s so so good.
A deceptively large exhibition featuring a huge number of “artists” who weren’t / aren’t really artists. Those who hide their art from the world, those whose art wasn’t recognised until they were gone, people who used art to spread the message of god or to hide their terrible secrets. Some of it is beautiful and some of it is down right bizarre!
It’s FREE too, click the photo for more info!
