HERE to see about getting your copy!
another magazine worth checking out is frankie (though it's aussie not kiwi).
This issue features
- various artists making it on their own
- an article on those dolls (blythe?) which I am trying to understand (what's the obsession?)
- a toilet paper review
- some fashion: vintage style one piece swimsuits!!!
- some crafty ideas: a tutorial for making a retro style tissue box holder
- and a free wall poster by illustrator mel stringer.
yeah I am definitely their target market.
ah yes, RUSSH, my favourite south pacific fashion magazine. They get me every time with their collage layout style, their tributes to yesteryear, and their profiles on interesting creatives.
many of the fashion spreads are raggamuffin-esque, with layers of varying textures and materials. Even though I know its not, much of it looks like stuff you could score on a really good op shopping day- as though the outfits were put together by a a super stylish art student on a shoe string budget. Street fashion kicks runway fashions butt almost every time. well I think so anyway.
Also in RUSSH an advertisement booklet for the new Kookai collection, which I had never heard of before. I think I like the photography and the movement of the fabric more than the actual dresses. but wowee none the less.
Lets all put of flowing dresses and meet at the beach in 15, okay?
see you there,
ps a list of things that have broken in the last week, or, why my sister asked me if we have a poltergeist living here:
our only speaker system
our front door handle and lock
yoshi's collar (while outside near a busy road!)
Luke's mobile charger
and something smells in the kitchen but I don't know what.
