“Today, a new generation of artists, musicians, designers, gallerists, and writers are taking the city by storm. Determined to make it, even though NYC is now officially the most expensive city in the world. They find spaces further and further from Manhattan, from Brooklyn to upstate, even sometimes leaving to other places, while still thinking and breathing New York. But above all, New York is a state of mind. It remains the most creative, intellectual, fearless, and transgressive city in the United States, for better or worse – in spite of the underground art scene in Detroit. Miami and its international art fair, the art collections and museums in Houston and Dallas, San Francisco and its tech explosion, and of course the artificial paradise of Los Angeles that still attracts creatives.”
In 1992, Elein Fleiss and Olivier Zahm started the magazine Purple Prose as a reaction against the superficial glamour of the 1980’s; much as a part of the global counterculture at the time, inspired by magazines like Interview, Ray Gun, Nova, and Helmut Newton’s Illustrated, but with the aesthetics of what usually is referred to as anti-fashion. Based on their personal interests and views; Purple was, and in a sense still is, made much in the same spirit of the fanzine. The magazine quickly became associated with the “realism” of the new fashion photography of the 1990’s, with names like Juergen Teller, Terry Richardson, Wolfgang Tillmans, and Mario Sorrenti. Purple Fashion magazine is high quality, chunky and seriously good, published in France, printed in both English and French.
