Fragrance Girl + Russh Magazine

The Glossy Recommends...

Magazine love is a fickle thing. If you are anything like me - you are probably always on a somewhat endless quest for the perfect fashion mag. And yes, as soon as you think you may have found one - the editor leaves or the mag folds or the content goes to shit.

Okay, so I hope I don't jinx it - but this has yet to happen to Russh Magazine, my current flame. For me this magazine is all about the mix. When I read this Jim Jarmusch quote they published in Issue 30 (Daul Kim on the cover - hello?) - I kind of felt like it might be their raison d'etre? It's not that the content is so mind-blowing, but somehow they seem to capture some of fashions fleeting moments - perfectly. You know - when it's less about which designer is doing what and more about the feeling. (Cue laugh track).

Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select ony things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authnticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don't bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: "It's not where you take things from - it's where you take them to." Jim Jarmusch
