PURPLE FASHION is a magazine publication awash with tasteful Terry Richardson style pics of noody women, poncey clothes, and articles on bush-snapping avant-garde Japanese photographers. It is also the weightiest magazine in history.
Buried amongst the luxury advertising are in-depth evaluations of people like Kim Deal, Romain Gavras, Mark Ronson and other good folk from arts and cultural backgrounds.
In this issue you can find an enlightening interview with one of the most important characters from the history of Hip-Hop, DJ Double R, AKA Rick Rubin. And yes, he’s lost a little. If you have any more than a passing interest in Frederick, then pick this up
If you are fiscally challenged, you may wanna get yer 5 finger discount goin on/ re-mortage the house as this tome comes with a hefty tag. The shot of his ‘music room’ is reward enough. Its a fascinatin interview and just the fact that Rubin wasnt aware that he had or hadnt had a number one single makes him even more of a g.o.d. in our eyes.
