Journalist Jan Kedves isn't afraid to ask a pointed question and his subjects certainly aren't afraid to answer. Whether it's Bruce Weber discussing nudity, dogs and Clint Eastwood; Juergen Teller talking about daring shoots with Charlotte Rampling, Victoria Beckham and the one time he may have gone too far; or Raf Simons waxing nostalgic about his days and nights as a club kid, this collection of interviews goes beyond the latest trends to distill what makes its subjects tick. A fashion world insider in his own right, Kedves knows how to talk to models, designers, photographers and artists, sharing his own opinions and recollections as a way of drawing out even the most reticent. As a result, his conversations with the likes of Pierre Cardin, Malcolm McLaren, Rick Owens, Helmut Lang and Veruschka can feel as intimate as a late night gabfest, and every bit as fun. Other interviewees include the following: Miguel Adrover, Walter Van Beirendonck, Bless, Damir Doma, Michel Gaubert, Jean-Paul Goude, Iris van Herpen, Nick Knight, Charlie Le Mindu, Willi Ninja, Diane Pernet, Loic Prigent, Viviane Sassen, Valerie Steele, Barbara Vinken, Bernhard Willhelm, ZaldyÜber den Autor:
