Iris Apfel, the iconic 91-year-old fashion muse, is on the cover of Dazed & Confused’s new art special. Shot by Jeff Bark at Apfel’s home in Manhattan and styled by Robbie Spencer in Rei Kawakubo’s 2D Comme des Garcons collection, you can watch this incredible film and now pick the mag up from shops everywhere.
Alongside an illuminating, inspiring interview with Apfel by Karley Sciortino is the scoop on Fatima Al-Qadiri’s jaw-droppingly brutal imagining of Gulf futurism through digital textures and ancient melodies, the story of how glam SSION went from unlisenable oik to high pop punk and a chat between Philip Glass and Beck on their friendship, their collaborative remix project and appreciation of the skeletal structure of musical scores. Rounding up the issue on art’s outer edge is Francesca Gavin’s identification of the Off Modernists – young artists creating radical reworkings of history – alongside six original commissions from this thrilling breed.
