It’s the must-read biannual magazine for readers with an eye for awesome photography and a fascination for fashion. Packed with more design dazzle than ever, the eighth issue of Salt is out now.
Marvel at Mexico’s flamboyant Day of the Dead Festival, the backcloth to a vibrant homage to iconic artist Frida Kahlo featuring sparkling tributes from a group of acclaimed Mexican creative talents. In New York City, the godmother of style, Iris Apfel, treats readers to a rare glimpse inside her dressing room, revealing decades’ worth of quirky flamboyance and enviable collectibles.
Across the pond, British fashion veteran Sir Paul Smith, who has combined commercial success with critical credibility for fifty years, discusses the business of high fashion. Over in Paris, renowned jeweler Delphine-Charlotte Parmentier marks her 20th Anniversary with Métis, a stunning eleven-piece collection that has the fash-pack in a frenzy. Jean Paul Gaultier also tells his own remarkable story, including joining Pierre Cardin’s studio at eighteen, his astonishing launch in 1976, and developing his Fall/Winter 2013/14 collection at Swarovski’s headquarters.
Moving eastwards, Salt visits Beijing Design Week, where China’s creative elite is pushing boundaries at Swarovski’s visionary exhibition, Digital Crystal. Finally, after four years in the making, Swarovski’s state-of-the-art Crystalactite cut makes its debut: an inspired collaboration with avant-garde fashion house Maison Martin Margiela, its show-stopping icy shapes have set a new standard in jewelry.
You’ll find all this and more in Salt, published by Show Media under Editor-in-Chief Peter Howarth, the former Editor of UK Esquire and Arena, and Style Director of GQ. Click here to browse through the magazine!
