Treasure! The magazine kind.

During some downtime at the studio, I started flicking through the knee-high pile of i.D. and Dazed magazines stacked against the wall. It’s an impressive pile, every time we’re in there, I resist the temptation to push the towers down and roll around on them like a complete spastic. Why? Because they’re old. These issues from 2000 to 2006 are treasure! The styling in the editorials is wicked, as are the shots themselves. As are the ballsy and obscure ads — woolen bunnies at urinals for Helmut Lang, accidentally blurry group shots for Miyake, and the above (completely weird) ad for Sisley. I knew Terry Richardson’s shot for Benetton for ages, but what the fuck is this?!
I mean, more confounding than the hiked up skirt and pervy-Terry avec suggestively- and strategically-placed camera is the clam chowder recipe. Quoi?!! Whatever, I love it, it made me howl.
AND THEN, there is this photo editorial with Lil’ Kim – only the cutest treasure troll ever! Well, before she started looking like that plastic surgery cat lady.
This photo’s been kicking around in my inspiration folder for longer than I can remember, I was happy-happy when I found the FULL editorial yesterday in i.D circa 2000! Shot by Steven Klein, styled by Patti Wilson, made up by Pat McGrath, haired by Chuck amos and with super dope nails. A freaking dream team.
Nicki Minaj, eat your heart out.
