la mode est une religion, en voici la bible

I looooooove fashion, and I so enjoyed The September Issue.  What a treat to get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Vogue, especially the record-breaking September 2007 issue! Grace Coddington was perhaps the most fascinating person in the movie; this is a great article to read in conjunction with the movie.

Of course, I was also watching the interiors.  Many of the Condé Nast offices are more utilitarian than anything else, but there are flashes of fabulous.  Anna Wintour’s office chairs bear a striking resemblance to these Tolix cafe chairs. Do you think they are comfortable?  (It’s not like Anna has any padding of her own.  As I ate my movie popcorn, I wondered whether she’s ever let a kernel of such pass her lips!)  Anyhoo, I’ve totally been trying to talk my sister into using these as indoor dining chairs in her very casual breakfast area, but she’s not convinced just yet.  Don’t worry; she’ll see the light eventually!
