In 7 thematic sections – the seven deadly sins of fashion – Bruce Gilden paints a picture of our time. All high-tension, these sections mix reportage with fashion:

  • POWER, or the ephemeral (funerals) juxtaposed with outward signs of wealth (“Arm Candy”)
  • FAME’s bonfire of the vanities at various celebrations of fashion
  • Cult of the BODY, with a boxing match, larger than life bodies in Brooklyn, and the worked-up bodies of dancers in South Central Los Angeles
  • FANTASMES, sparked by an ideal figure, beauty parlors, and Kate Moss, the ultimate cover girl
  • The EXCLUSIVE, a secthat pays homage to the artisans of luxury
  • The ILLICIT explores various underworlds
  • And an ADDICTION secthat brings together the magazine’s exclusive advertisements commissioned by Atmosphere, Baccarat, Christian Lacroix, Guru, HSBC, Herms, Krastase, Lacoste, Hypnose by Lancôme, Lavazza, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Marithe & Francois Girbaud, Paul Smith, Pierre Hardy, Dodo by Pomellato, shu uemura, Trussardi, and Viktor &Rolf perfumes.
