Fashion We are excited to share our latest collaboration with @trixiemattel for Pride.    TEAM CREDITS: Photography by Marcus Cooper Fashion Editor: Lisa Jarvis Editor-in-Chief: Timotej Letonja Props: Enoch Choi       “Do you believe in fashion? The smoke and mirrors of cosmeceuticals? Do you believe in 30-year-old Caucasian men alone in his house surrounded by 11 1/2 inch fashion dolls? You came to the right place. Tyra Banks was discovered at the airport. I was discovered on the tarmac; face down, breasts exposed, but still serving. I went on to model in my home for no one for another ten years before getting my first gig at a Buffalo Wild Wings. To stay thin, I got my ribs removed- I guess next time I should chew the food. I love dolls, I love comedy, and fashion is only a stepping stone to my true passion- secret shopping. Next time you’re shoving a Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue into your purse at the Neiman Marcus look over your shoulder- gotcha.” ~ Trixie Mattel   #Pride #NuméroNetherlands#TrixieMattel We are excited to share our latest collaboration with @trixiemattel for Pride.    TEAM CREDITS: Photography by Marcus Cooper Fashion Editor: Lisa Jarvis Editor-in-Chief: Timotej Letonja Props: Enoch Choi       “Do you believe in fashion?

FILLING PIECES TAKES STEPS TOWARDS RESPONSIBILITY WITH RELEASE OF  THE COURT 683.

FILLING PIECES TAKES STEPS TOWARDS RESPONSIBILITY WITH RELEASE OF THE COURT 683.

Accessories Named after the additional production cost of €6,83, the Court 683 is the brand’s most responsible shoe to-date.   The ‘683’ is the first of a new conscious line of products aiming to pave the way for the entire FILLING PIECES collection to be more responsible. The campaign is shot by Woody Bos, featuring Tyvvani Ebuehi and Gogo Lupin.The imagery expresses the human need to move ever closer to the shapes created by nature. The playful interaction with our Court 683 aims to emulate organic forms, almost forgotten in the months of isolation. Inspiration comes from the simple beauty of the trees and wildflowers, something we might have taken for granted. Modelled on the Low Plain Court, key features of the 683 include the use of fully-traceable, Dutch organic leather hides, coloured using metal-free tanning. Traditional rubber soles are substituted for a sugarcane EVA equivalent, eliminating the use of petroleum from the production process.     “As a fashion brand, we are conscious that each decision we make has an impact on our environment and we need to do better. Whilst we don’t currently have access to a luxury leather alternative, the 683 is the most responsible shoe we can produce right now, with steps being taken to further develop responsible choices within our production and design process.”- Chris Alders, Head of Marketing at FP.     €6.83 is the total additional cost of FP’s responsible choices. Every aspect of the original Court has been examined and replaced by more sustainable alternatives. The organic hides are sourced through Trace your Leather Cooperative (TLC), traceable to the individual cow. The leather lining has been substituted for recycled PET mesh. Laces are organic cotton, coated in beeswax - eliminating the use of pesticides. Plastic-based insoles are replaced with recycled cork produced in Portugal, home to FP’s factories - where production emissions have been offset by investing in carbon-negative projects. A cattle-style tag with a QR code is attached to each pair and leads to a webpage dedicated to the decision-making for the 683, as well as detailing the ‘responsible’ steps put in place throughout the brand’s entire production cycle. 683 represents the commitment from FILLING PIECES to be more environmentally responsible at all levels of the company. There are plans to extend the 683 line to other signature silhouettes such as the Low Top and Low Mondo 2.0. These are identifiable by a recycled, royal blue nylon label. The Court 683 is available in four colourways from 16 June 2020, part of the first drop for AW20.     CREDITS : Photography : Woody Bos (@woodybos) Art Direction : Daniele Misso (@daniele.misso) Talents : Tyvanni Osaheni Ebuehi (@tyvvanni), Gregory Robert (@gogolupin) Styling : Anna Claassen (@annaclaassen) MUAH : David Koppelaar (@davidkoppelaar) Named after the additional production cost of €6,83, the Court 683 is the brand’s most responsible shoe to-date.   The ‘683’ is the first of a new conscious line of products aiming to pave the way for the entire FILLING PIECES collection to be more responsible. The campaign is shot by Woody Bos, featuring Tyvvani Ebuehi and Gogo Lupin.The imagery expresses the human need to move ever closer to the shapes created by nature.

Saint Laurent for Spring & Summer 2020

Fashion Anthony Vaccarello chose Los Angeles to present his new Saint Laurent menswear collection, envisioning the city as the latest Marrakesh. Walking on a sandy beach in Malibu, the Saint Laurent man exudes the free spirit inspired by the irreverent allure of Mick Jagger and the Parisian nonchalance of Serge Gainsbourg. Details and colors captured from the mythic 1975 concert tour of the Stones build the ultimate, timeless bohemian attitude.     ‘It started after meeting Mick Jagger for his upcoming tour, he showed me his wardrobe and I was particularly attracted by the details, the colors, the attitude.’ Anthony Vaccarello       @ysl @anthonyvaccarello #YSLLA #YSL  #SaintLaurent  #YvesSaintLaurent Anthony Vaccarello chose Los Angeles to present his new Saint Laurent menswear collection, envisioning the city as the latest Marrakesh.

For Fall & Winter 2020, Givenchy unveils Antigona soft bags for men

Accessories For Fall-Winter 2020, the House of Givenchy has adapted its new Antigona Soft bag especially for the Givenchy man.     Named for the heroine of Greek mythology who inspired the original, iconic Antigona, the Antigona Soft first appeared in the Pre-Fall 2020 women’s lookbook. Revisited in a men’s version, the maxi style debuted on the Fall-Winter 2020 runway in Paris, as a natural extension of this season’s mood.     At a glance, the family resemblance is clear. Like the classic Antigona, the Antigona Soft is based on rigorous geometry and purity of line, transposed into a suppler construction. Inspired by Givenchy’s dual signature, the new men’s bag blends the subtle sensuality found in the women’s style now enhanced with more generous, masculine proportions.     A directional statement among Givenchy leather accessories for men, the Antigona Soft is sophisticated yet versatile. Gliding seamlessly from everyday use to weekender or extended getaways, it comes in a large size (in black or sand beige) and a maxi size; in woven black, white and red leather; with the Givenchy chains print on wool; or in timeless black calf leather. Sleek, practical features include a removable shoulder strap for extra versatility, two spacious zipped compartments, and a zipped inner pocket. Two outer handles with turn-lock hardware add to its refined allure.     The Antigona Soft maxi bag for men will debut in Givenchy boutiques on September, 2020. Retail prices: from 2,290 euros (large).

GUCCI LAUNCHES NEW DIGITAL PLATFORMS TO UNIFY #GUCCICOMMUNITY OF VOICES FOR PEOPLE AND PLANET

GUCCI LAUNCHES NEW DIGITAL PLATFORMS TO UNIFY #GUCCICOMMUNITY OF VOICES FOR PEOPLE AND PLANET

Fashion Earlier this week Gucci launched a new Instagram profile at Instagram.com/GucciEquilibrium and refreshed its Equilibrium website (equilibrium.gucci.com) to underline the House’s ongoing commitment to generate positive change for people and planet. Alongside initiatives supporting lasting social impact and environmental stewardship, Gucci’s 2019 Environmental Profit and Loss (EP&L) results were also published today revealing a substantial reduction (-21%) for its total environmental impacts year-over-year.     Gucci Equilibrium: The next-generation of Gucci Equilibrium, originally launched in 2018, aims to inspire and unify a community of voices to join the conversations around topics that are increasingly critical in today’s world. Paving a new path from Gucci’s other digital content channels, Gucci Equilibrium’s Instagram and website speaks to a curious, conscious and motivated group of people, the #GucciCommunity. A community made up of likeminded, engaged and inclusive individuals who take a stand on issues that define the way we all treat the world and each other. Gucci’s new digital destinations will share messages from a diverse group of leaders, organizations and talents from Gucci Equilibrium, and beyond, promoting climate action and a fair, just and equitable world for all. This will in turn encourage other shared experiences and ideas for transformative change.     “Gucci is driven by the issues that are fundamentally influencing and creating our collective future. It is paramount that we build this future to be more equitable, where injustice and discrimination in all their forms are not allowed to prevail. In light of current events, our unwavering commitment to combat racism and fight for equality is now even stronger,” said Marco Bizzarri, President and CEO of Gucci.“As a company, we will continue to focus on generating positive change for people and for nature across our business. We also have a responsibility, as a global brand, to be active partners within the community to incite change and Gucci Equilibrium has the capacity to convene and unite a community of voices to help navigate the way forward.”      Defined by the two pillars, People and Planet, equilibrium.gucci.com encompasses Gucci’s commitments and actions to reduce its environmental footprint and protect nature, while supporting people’s rights and championing inclusivity and respect, so that everyone in the global Gucci community is free to express their authentic, diverse selves. These initiatives also span beyond Gucci’s own business to impact systemic change more broadly: from creating opportunities for diverse talents who are underrepresented in the fashion industry under the Gucci Changemakers’community fund and scholarship programme, to calling for climate leadership across sectors through the CEO Carbon Neutral Challenge, as examples. The site comes with a new logo to represent the interconnection between people and planet, designed by artist MP5.     Gucci is also strengthening its Equilibrium message outside of its newly dedicated platforms, giving enhanced visibility to sustainability across its main touch points, including retail activation, Gucci.com and the Gucci App. From today, a global audience can browse through a new set of icons on Gucci.com to discover the sustainability features for around 400 products. Gucci 2019 EP&L Today, Gucci has also published the results of its 2019 Environmental Profit and Loss (EP&L) account to benchmark its continued progress against its ambitious sustainability targets.  As a driver of Gucci’s 10-year Culture of Purpose strategy (2015-2025), these objectives include a 40% reduction of Gucci’s total environmental impacts within its direct operations and across the entire supply chain and a 50% reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2025, relative to growth (2015 baseline). Gucci is ahead of schedule and already close to achieving its 2025 targets. Detailed in its interactive Digital EP&L, Gucci’s new results for 2019 reveal a 39% reduction for the House’s combined impacts and a 37% decrease in GHG emissions alone, relative to growth (2015 baseline). Comparing these results to its 2018 EP&L, Gucci reduced its overall footprint by 21% and decreased its GHG emissions by 18% year-over-year, relative to growth (2015 baseline). These excellent outcomes are directly linked to Gucci’s efforts to drive improvements in high impact areas throughout its supply chain, which has led to positive and measurable change including: Increasing the use of recycled raw materials and organic fibres in its collections, and incorporating responsibly sourced precious metals in hardware and jewellery, like 100% ethical gold for jewellery; Extending sustainable processes and manufacturing efficiencies, such as Gucci Scrap-less for leather and Gucci-Up for circularity; Switching to green energy, whereby Gucci has reached 83% renewable energy for its stores, offices, warehouses and factories with a 100% target by the end of 2020.   Earlier this week Gucci launched a new Instagram profile at Instagram.com/GucciEquilibrium and refreshed its Equilibrium website (equilibrium.gucci.com) to underline the House’s ongoing commitment to generate positive change for people and planet. Alongside initiatives supporting lasting social impact and environmental stewardship, Gucci’s 2019 Environmental Profit and Loss (EP&L) results were also published today revealing a substantial reduction (-21%) for its total environmental impacts year-over-year.     Gucci Equilibrium: The next-generation of Gucci Equilibrium, originally launched in 2018, aims to inspire and unify a community of voices to join the conversations around topics that are increasingly critical in today’s world. Paving a new path from Gucci’s other digital content channels, Gucci Equilibrium’s Instagram and website speaks to a curious, conscious and motivated group of people, the #GucciCommunity.

A trip around the Mediterranean with Chanel

Fashion Cruise 2020/21 collection - ‘Balade en Méditerranée’ (A trip around the Mediterranean)   “Initially I had Capri in mind, where the show was supposed to take place, but didn’t happen in the end because of lockdown,” says Virginie Viard, “So we had to adapt: not only did we decide to use fabrics that we already had, but the collection, more generally, evolved towards a trip around the Mediterranean… The islands, the scent of the eucalyptus, the pink shades of the bougainvillea.” And a free, laid-back allure inspired by the legendary actresses of the 1960s when they would holiday on the Italian and the French Riviera.    This collection was conceived to travel light with “a wardrobe that can be carried in a little suitcase on wheels, a shopper and an embroidered handbag”, a few easy to wear, multipurpose items of clothing that all go together perfectly, and can even be transformed: long skirts become strapless dresses when pulled up, long jackets in black chiffon can be worn by day over a triangle bikini, or by night with an embroidered bandeau top and jeans, “and if worn over bare skin, it becomes a déshabillé.” The dresses in fine transparent lamé are coupled with jackets that can be untied and slipped over a pair of crêpe shorts, while wraparound dresses and skirts liberate movement. Bougainvillea pink illuminates suits in leather as supple as a second skin, and in tweed that’s been left unlined for more fluidity.      A collection of refined simplicity, to be discovered on chanel.com.    #CHANELCruise Cruise 2020/21 collection - ‘Balade en Méditerranée’ (A trip around the Mediterranean)   “Initially I had Capri in mind, where the show was supposed to take place, but didn’t happen in the end because of lockdown,” says Virginie Viard, “So we had to adapt: not only did we decide to use fabrics that we already had, but the collection, more generally, evolved towards a trip around the Mediterranean… The islands, the scent of the eucalyptus, the pink shades of the bougainvillea.” And a free, laid-back allure inspired by the legendary actresses of the 1960s when they would holiday on the Italian and the French Riviera.    This collection was conceived to travel light with “a wardrobe that can be carried in a little suitcase on wheels, a shopper and an embroidered handbag”, a few easy to wear, multipurpose items of clothing that all go together perfectly, and can even be transformed: long skirts become strapless dresses when pulled up, long jackets in black chiffon can be worn by day over a triangle bikini, or by night with an embroidered bandeau top and jeans, “and if worn over bare skin, it becomes a déshabillé.” The dresses in fine transparent lamé are coupled with jackets that can be untied and slipped over a pair of crêpe shorts, while wraparound dresses and skirts liberate movement.

At home with Austin Aughinbaugh

Men At home with Austin Aughinbaugh at IMG MODELS.     Who are you  and what is your profession?   My name is Austin Augie or Austin Aughinbaugh. I am a 27 year old professional BMX, Photographer and Aspiring Director.  Each of these professions give me creative freedom.. allowing me to work on my own time and do things that not only make me happy but also keep me busy. I have worked in many different fields Dishwasher, Insurance Salesman, Pizza Delivery Driver etc. Also joined the army at one point but quit before they shipped me out.      How do you think Covid-19 will affect the fashion industry both long-term and short-term?  How do you see the impact of Corona crisis on the general perception of fashion? Do you believe everything will just go back to normal after Covid-19, or how do you see it will be?   I can honestly say I have no idea… im focused on succeeding no matter what obstacle stands in front of me.. this is just an obstacle that not only the fashion world but the world in general, will have to conquer.  I see a lot of companies adapting to this new situation. Home shoots, facetime shoots, 3d digital music videos (sam cannon) its amazing to see what we can can do when the waves crash on us!      How do you spend your Quarantine time and are you still able to create while being quarantined?   Its actually been pretty good giving the circumstances. I am lucky to have a bestfriend and a girlfriend who are both models. I was able to curate and  shoot stories for both Zara Man and Zara women. Other then that its been pretty chill.. playing guitar, hanging with my dog.. smoking a lot of weed if were being honest! Hahahaha…. I also started a radio show on my youtube Channel called “radio augie” where I put together playlist and introduce my audience to new music… its been pretty fun.      What is your first memory with fashion? And how did you start modeling?   Its funny… in Indiana we didn’t have much fashion.. I was always the odd ball though, in my teen years..  I hated how everyone dressed the same…Hollister, Abercrombie and fitch, American eagle those were the go toos for the majority of my peers.  I was always inspired by my skater friends who would get there look from the pages of Thrasher Magazine or a new skate Video that came out.  Modeling came about out of nowhere.. I was living in Long Beach working at a juice bar.. and my buddy Tom took me to a casting for a timberland job… it was my first ever casting… and I booked it. I had to get my passport in under 24 hours and then fly to Mexico City for a week. I met Deb Watson (the stylist on the shoot) She recommended I leave cali and move to nyc to pursue modeling. I owe a lot to her I wouldn’t be where im at now if it wasn’t for her.         What is your daily beauty routine like? And what beauty products you cannot go without?   This doesn’t really apply to me.. I use my girlfriends face stuff and that’s about it… I make sure to wear sunscreen..       What is the coolest new thing you have learnt since being quarantined and how did you learn it?   I would say playing the blues on guitar.. I bought this program online and just started following the step by step guide. Im no chuck berry but maybe one day!     Tell us something about yourself that isn't on your resume.   I lived with the amish for 3 months when I was in 6th grade.. didn’t mind it. Actually fell in love with this amish girl told her I wanted to marry her… got the whole community in an uproar haha       What is your favorite song at the moment and why? Do you have a playlist that you would like to share with us?   I have been listening to a lot of The Growlers and Bon iver  but I have a huge playlist on my Spotify that hits every genre… just look up augie playlist on Spotify and enjoy.      What is the first thing you like to do when you wake up, and last thing you like to do before going to bed?   Walk my dog and drink coffee every morning  used to smoke a spliff but im trying to chill out on smoking throughout the day.      Have you ever been to Amsterdam? If yes, describe your experience of Amsterdam in one sentence.   Yes one time on a trip around Europe.  Lets just say my brain was a little hazy.     What is your go-to work-out for staying in shape? What does working out mean to you?   I just ride my bike everyday tends to work. I cant stand doing things I don’t like… working out being one of them! dont get it twisted if get a little chubby you best believe ill be hitting the gym.     What is your favorite painting and has it inspired you for any of your work thus far?   I bought a painting from a friend Taras in Paris.. we were at his house drinking wine and I drunkingly purchased his painting… pretty heft expense but well worth it!      At what age did you start with BMX  riding?   At age 14.      What is the most exciting part about BMX riding for you?    It used to be scaring the shit out of myself.. whatever I could do to get my blood going.. but now its just going out with my friends and hanging out…   At home with Austin Aughinbaugh at IMG MODELS.     Who are you  and what is your profession?   My name is Austin Augie or Austin Aughinbaugh. I am a 27 year old professional BMX, Photographer and Aspiring Director.  Each of these professions give me creative freedom.. allowing me to work on my own time and do things that not only make me happy but also keep me busy. I have worked in many different fields Dishwasher, Insurance Salesman, Pizza Delivery Driver etc. Also joined the army at one point but quit before they shipped me out.      How do you think Covid-19 will affect the fashion industry both long-term and short-term?  How do you see the impact of Corona crisis on the general perception of fashion? Do you believe everything will just go back to normal after Covid-19, or how do you see it will be?   I can honestly say I have no idea… im focused on succeeding no matter what obstacle stands in front of me.. this is just an obstacle that not only the fashion world but the world in general, will have to conquer.  I see a lot of companies adapting to this new situation. Home shoots, facetime shoots, 3d digital music videos (sam cannon) its amazing to see what we can can do when the waves crash on us!      How do you spend your Quarantine time and are you still able to create while being quarantined?   Its actually been pretty good giving the circumstances. I am lucky to have a bestfriend and a girlfriend who are both models. I was able to curate and  shoot stories for both Zara Man and Zara women. Other then that its been pretty chill.. playing guitar, hanging with my dog.. smoking a lot of weed if were being honest! Hahahaha…. I also started a radio show on my youtube Channel called “radio augie” where I put together playlist and introduce my audience to new music… its been pretty fun.      What is your first memory with fashion? And how did you start modeling?   Its funny… in Indiana we didn’t have much fashion.. I was always the odd ball though, in my teen years..  I hated how everyone dressed the same…Hollister, Abercrombie and fitch, American eagle those were the go toos for the majority of my peers.  I was always inspired by my skater friends who would get there look from the pages of Thrasher Magazine or a new skate Video that came out.  Modeling came about out of nowhere.. I was living in Long Beach working at a juice bar.. and my buddy Tom took me to a casting for a timberland job… it was my first ever casting… and I booked it. I had to get my passport in under 24 hours and then fly to Mexico City for a week. I met Deb Watson (the stylist on the shoot) She recommended I leave cali and move to nyc to pursue modeling. I owe a lot to her I wouldn’t be where im at now if it wasn’t for her.         What is your daily beauty routine like? And what beauty products you cannot go without?   This doesn’t really apply to me.. I use my girlfriends face stuff and that’s about it… I make sure to wear sunscreen..       What is the coolest new thing you have learnt since being quarantined and how did you learn it?   I would say playing the blues on guitar.. I bought this program online and just started following the step by step guide. Im no chuck berry but maybe one day!     Tell us something about yourself that isn't on your resume.   I lived with the amish for 3 months when I was in 6th grade.. didn’t mind it. Actually fell in love with this amish girl told her I wanted to marry her… got the whole community in an uproar haha       What is your favorite song at the moment and why? Do you have a playlist that you would like to share with us?   I have been listening to a lot of The Growlers and Bon iver  but I have a huge playlist on my Spotify that hits every genre… just look up augie playlist on Spotify and enjoy.      What is the first thing you like to do when you wake up, and last thing you like to do before going to bed?   Walk my dog and drink coffee every morning  used to smoke a spliff but im trying to chill out on smoking throughout the day.      Have you ever been to Amsterdam? If yes, describe your experience of Amsterdam in one sentence.   Yes one time on a trip around Europe.  Lets just say my brain was a little hazy.     What is your go-to work-out for staying in shape? What does working out mean to you?   I just ride my bike everyday tends to work.

As part of the collection, four organic cotton T-shirts were also presented in fully sustainable and recyclable cylindrical packaging, reminiscent of the kind used for rum. The t-shirts feature illustrations created in collaboration with the illustrator Andrea Mancini, inspired by timeless images of Havana: marvellously decadent corners of the city, its colours, flavours and emotions. Available in four different illustrations: an elderly woman, a street lined with typically colourful buildings, a man playing the double base and a local car.

At home with Alexander DiPersia

Men In New York City with Alexander DiPersia, captured by Kat Irlin.   Who are you  and what is your profession?   It likely says this above somewhere but for the record, I am Alexander DiPersia, called Alexander by some, Alex by others, and AJ since I was a kid and my brother couldn’t pronounce Alexander. I am, according to google, an actor but I am also a writer and in fact most of my time is taken up but what was once my side-gig, art dealing and curation. I collect art passionately (addictively) and fund that by placing art in both private and public collections across the world. It allows me to have an element of control and input that simply sitting back and waiting for meetings and auditions to work out doesn’t. Plus I constantly get to see beautiful things, which is an absolute must to keep me happy and engaged.       How do you think Covid-19 will affect the fashion industry both long-term and short-term?  How do you see the impact of Corona crisis on the general perception of fashion?    I think short term we’ve already seen less spending by consumers across all brand price points and obviously a lot less parties and hulabaloo around fashion week’s and shows and who gets to go where and why. I think parts of this will last long term and maybe that’s for the better. Less buying of things we don’t need but think we do because other’s have them, and less FOMO from an exclusive and exclusionary world that everyone gets a peek into via social media. In regards to the general perception of fashion I don’t think too much will change, what’s cool will be cool, as long as we can wear it comfortably while at home binge-ing our favorite tv show ;)     How do you spend your Quarantine time and are you still able to create while being quarantined?   Like most everyone I’ve been doing a lot of cooking, that’s not new, but I certainly have been doing it more now than ever before. I love thai food and have never tried cooking it, so that has been a fun and very spicey experiment. I also have picked up a love for the bow and arrow. I now spend my afternoons in the backyard pretending I’m a much less talented Robin Hood. From a work perspective, I am working more than ever as we are expected to have our phones on us at all times. I really don’t mind it. It’s nice to keep things moving.      What is in your planning or was in your planning for this year and how will Covid -19 effect that?   Right now I don’t have any plans. I’m not one for plans ever but I am usually on a plane 2/3 times a month nomad style. I most likely would be somewhere else right now if not for Covid, but it’s been quite a relief just staying in one place and being content with that. The first thing I will do when I am allowed to and am comfortable doing so is to go and visit my 7 moth old niece in London. I miss her every second of every day.   What is your daily beauty routine like? And what beauty products you cannot go without?   I truly never thought I’d be asked this question. I’m honored. It has certainly changed a bit during covid as I’m likely not showering as much as I should be. But that will change (I think.) When I shower in the morning (again that has changed) I wash my face with la roche posay facewash and then moisturize with embryollise moisturizer. I found out about both of these during my time on film sets not by trial and error, they were entirely someone else’s idea and the face wash smells nice. At night I wipe my face down with witch hazel which my dad used to use. Simple and clean.     What is the coolest new thing you have learnt since being quarantined and how did you learn it?   The coolest thing I’ve learned, as I said above, is the bow and arrow. I learned it by watching countless youtube videos, practice, and reading Herrigel’s ‘Zen in the art of Archery,’ which is the book credited with introducing Zen to Western audiences. It’s both fun and peaceful and makes me feel a lot cooler than I am. Though it’s not new I’ve really learned to appreciate sunsets and flowers and animals and all that comes with long walks and being upstate. I’m slowly turning into my mother.     Tell us something about yourself that isn't on your resume.   I paint my toe nails. They are currently purple.       What's the first place you'd want to go when it's safe again to travel and go out of our homes and why there?   As I said above I can’t wait to see my niece in London and give her a big squeeze. Second to that it’s seeing my parents and family members and friends I’ve been so distant from. I really just want some hugs. I’d go anywhere and do anything for a nice big hug right now. I really hope those come back soon. I’ll pay. A lot.     What is your favorite song at the moment and why? Do you have a playlist that you would like to share with us?   At the moment my songs and playlists are very classical. Bach’s Goldberg Variations as played by Glenn Gould and the Phantom Thread soundtrack by Jonny Greenwood from Radiohead keep me calm and collected though feeling slightly melancholic. I’m listening to nothing too new or exciting, just things that make me feel comforted and ok with being alone.       What is the first thing you like to do when you wake up, and last thing you like to do before going to bed?   When I wake up, I go straight to the coffee machine, make a pot, then go sit outside and listen to the birds while I read the news and have way too many cups of coffee. It has been tough lately with what’s been going on in my country and across the world. For months the day’s were met by grim covid numbers and now the morning’s are greeted by sad but important images of the anger spreading throughout my country due to the racial inequalities that have existed for far far too long. Those stick with me throughout the day so before bed, I read the news one more time and then I plug my phone in across the room and set my alarm. I put water and a little snack next to my bed as I inevitably wake up at some point in the night needing something sweet. That’s probably an unhelathy habit.     What is your go-to work-out for staying in shape? What does working out mean to you?   This is a tough one. I worked out every single day my entire teenage and adult life; boxing, running, swimming, yoga, everything under the sun. As I’ve gotten older I’ve developed some very bad back problems so my ‘workouts,’ if you can call them that, resemble a form of pilates now. Lots of rubber bands and stretches and very light isometric movements. It’s brutal not really being able to really break a sweat, but life is all about adapting. Working out has always been a means of escape for me, so now I just have to face a lot of things head on. TERRIBLE.     What is your favorite painting and has it inspired you for any of your work thus far?   My favorite painting, since I was a kid, is Jean-Michel Basquiat’s (untitled) 1981. It is in the collection of Eli and Edith Broad and is in their museum on display in Los Angeles. It’s the painting that first got me interested in art in general, and I had a poster of it on my wall as a child. It shows his focus on anatomy (he was in a car accident as a young guy and became obsessed with the book ‘Gray’s Anatomy’ and mortality), his love for showing both the inside and outside of somene (possibly himself), and it shows both life and death which I think had to do with his fear of dying young which indeed happened at 27 from a heroin overdose. He made so many paintings I love like ‘Defacement’ and that are so important right now, showing that 40 years later the police in America are still brutalizing the Black population. I can’t say either work has directly inspired my work but it has driven me to work hard and keep my head up despite how grim some things may look at times. Basquiat made this painting at 21 and died at 28. A masterpiece as a child and an ending that came way too early. My hope that stems from this is to live a long life and one day create something, anything, that inspires someone else as much as these painthing have inspired me.           INSTAGRAM: @alexanderdipersia In New York City with Alexander DiPersia, captured by Kat Irlin.   Who are you  and what is your profession?   It likely says this above somewhere but for the record, I am Alexander DiPersia, called Alexander by some, Alex by others, and AJ since I was a kid and my brother couldn’t pronounce Alexander.
