Does witnessing something with eager eyes make you a perfect candidate to become a doppelganger of someone in a near future? Does closing your eyes protect you from the same disease? Is there any sense in asking yourself such questions which don’t even deserve an answer? When it comes to magazine, such silly questions have no place. When Interview Magazine started to have “kids” or “little siblings” in Germany and Russia, the question is easy to imagine. It’s a little bit about doppelgangers and a lot about not to make the same magazine, in a less original and somehow cheaper version. So, far, the new editions of Interview have survived the usual trap and start to exist by their own, each with the local specificities adapted to the global concept and initial idea of Interview. Though, there is no math formula, no magic recipe (or a bit of both) and it’s when you have the paper in hand that you decide whether the target is close or far. I had the chance to see a bit of the newest issue of Interview Russia and one editorial caught my attention. For three reasons; first is as obvious as a nose in the middle of a face: the cast includes Kolfinna Kristofersdottir (Eskimo) and Tati Cotliar (Eskimo Direct); second is that the editorial might be simple for sure, nothing groundbreaking per-se but well excecuted and nice to look at; third one is the most important to me: it doesn’t stutter and/or babble, it’s no cheaper carbon copy of the original edition of the magazine. Shot by Benjamin Lennox and styled by Gro Curtis, comes as a sort of celebration of Kenzo’s latest line. I only miss a glass of champagne (or a full bottle would be even neater), now.
