Past and present meet on the two covers of the début issue of Re-Edition, the brand new quarterly out of Antwerp and London from editor Eddie Eldridge, with the choice of either a rare archival image from 1997 of the iconic Stella Tennant by Mark Borthwick or Harley Weir’s dreamy image of an androgynous young man dolled up in a dress by Vetements, the upstart design collective that was just named a finalist in this year’s LVMH Prize competition. Both art and fashion get equal billing in the issue, with excerpts from photographer Alec Soth’s new book Songbook and artist Jim Goldberg’s famous collection Raised by Wolves alongside a range of provocative fashion features. The late Dash Snow is represented by archival works, and the legendary Vivienne Westwood gets her due in a profound retrospective of her lengthy career, making the old feel new again.
Take a look at our exclusive preview below.
