PARIS, LA 16: FASHION AND WRITING
Fashion and Writing
224 pages in color
9 x 11 in.
PARIS, LA 16–a tenth anniversary special—focuses on the dual themes of fashion and writing. Fashion is the creative field where the representation of self goes into effect: the image. Writing is a method, a language, that gives birth to the inner-self: thought. In both cases it is a question of self-expression in relation with others, in image and in thought. It is our way to make sense with the rest of our community. But what happens now in the aftermath of the technological revolution, now that we realize we all share a common time and space together?
In our current age that seems to trip forward with speed, and blindness (particularly in the U.S.), we felt it necessary to bring together in a tango these binary themes, and simply observe their circling realities.
