Why does the forthcoming issue of Visionaire (No 39) look so suspiciously like the infamously desirable PS 2 gaming console? Perhaps it’s because the issue is indeed sponsored by Sony and was designed to echo the slick technology of the latest Playstation. Irony is the object of desire is actually made of wood and contains elegant little flip books by Baz Luhrmann, Pedro Almodovar, Darren Aronofsky, Steven Meisel and Nick Knight. Can you say “must buy”? …Speaking of Visionaire LLC, V magazine?s January issue is another must-buy for anyone who ever wondered what the angelic and perpetually polite people behind the scenes at the modeling agencies might look like. The enterprising publication shot a select group of NY agencies complete with staff and mannequin roster during the SS/03 NY shows. Wonder who came out of it with the best PR stunt? Let’s say the winner had be best spirit of “playfulness”.
