Sorry Sunday saved by the Sunday Supplements

A cheerful looking Lang brightened up the cover...

Sunday was a day that I want to forget (it was a day where my hangover met something else, some form of stomach bug which has left me utterly useless for the last few days) but now that I'm feeling human again, there is one good thing which came out of Sunday. The Observer Fashion Supplement by Tank. Ordinarily, this is a supplement which I like to flick through but the lasting taste is always bemoaning the lack of menswear...Issue 13 was different it was dedicated to Men's Fashion. This was the first men's edition, a behind the scenes look at what's going on in men's fashion right now as well as showcasing seasonal essentials, a conversation between the infamous curator Hans Ulrich Obrist and the pioneering designer turned conceptual artist Helmut Lang.

Here's to menswear infiltrating the Sunday Supplements and to feeling human again!

That Seventh Seal edit, is that taking reference to Bergman???

I've always hated the fact that there is a lack of menswear with Tank's supplement for The Observer!
Now, it seems like a good reason to hunt down that issue.

And I do hope Mr. Lang goes back to fashion!!!!

giancinephile: Good Bergman knowledge!

There is a lack of quality dialogue around menswear in most publications. The tide is beginning to turn.

Judging by the article in the supplement it seems as though Lang has chosen art over fashion. He has outgrown the world of fashion as he knows it. Here's hoping that he finds a new fahion world.
