“Sometimes with fashion, readers just want to see it and love it,” explains T Magazine editor Sally Singer in an interview with LOVE senior editor Murray Healy in Industrie 3, “they don’t want to interpret it too much because it can spoil the magic for them.” Too right, Sally, and the same goes for beauty, specifically men’s, erm, beauty.
The first (second, third, fourth?) time you unfollowed @FordModels on Twitter was likely in January during the menswear shows in Milano. Such were the nearly nonstop tweets and BlackBerry photos via the planet’s foremost microblogging service that @FordModels shed the odd follower unable to handle the troof, but thankfully with nearly 38K followers to the good there’s an even larger following for the shows that kick off Saturday.
One of my abiding memories of New York Fashion Week F/W 11 was witnessing Yohji Yamamoto arrive by car at 82 Mercer Street an hour before the Y-3 show. As you might expect, his arrival wasn’t a red carpet affair. A car pulled up, a man got out, and walked inside a building. End scene.

Today the celebrity drag riff riffs on with an editorial titled “The Icons” by Virgine creative director Hissa Igarashi and a host of photographers.

Another day, another new magazine…such is the Groundhog Day existence of the Ford Models Blog editor. This periodical treadmill, however isn’t without its rewards — even Bill Murray derived some joy from his movie plot lot — which for today at least comes in the form of the inaugural issue of Virgine.
