THE COSMOS ISSUE. Purple Fashion is a magazine that knows that having personality is about more than just being extroverted. Published in Paris under the eye of its charismatic Editor-In-Chief, Olivier Zahm, each issue is as decadent as his lifestyle is reported to be. Its articles and photo shoots ooze intimacy and somehow get inside places that many would dream to be. Indulgent? Perhaps. Typical? Definitely not. Purple Fashion manages to capture a ‘fashionable’ world in a way that subverts notions of superficiality and replaces it with a focus on personal expression and quality.
The Cosmos issue features Judy Chicago, plus texts by Tim Blanks and Maxine Bédat on sustainability, Christophe Galfard on astrophysics, Felix Guattari, Étienne Klein, and more on cosmos, art, science and dystopia. Conversations with a.o. Yusaku Maezawa, Tom Sachs, Philippe Parreno, Olafur Eliasson, Thomas Demand, and Doug Aitken. Photography by Tim Elkaim, Camille Vivier, Juergen Teller, Takashi Homma, Carsten Holler and many others.
