In the fashion section Laetitia Benat, Elaine Constantine, Jessica Craig-Martin, Nan Goldin und Takashi Homma present the new collections for Winter 2008/09. In the essay section we take a further-than-normal look beyond the frontiers of the fashion world, at Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin America and North America, to be precise. Seven reports across the seven continents. And the 1001 differences between them.
A warm welcome from the publishing and editing teams
PS: Itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout, down came the rain and washed the spider out, out came the sun and dried up all the rain, so itsy bitsy spider could climb the spout again.
