Holiday Magazine n°379 - California Issue

After Korea,  Holiday  ventures across the Pacific Ocean to California to discover what truths lay under the glare of its mythical aura. Bruce Weber trains his lens on the cowboy culture of the West; “Vie Privee" showcases photos of Kelly Rohrbach by Inez & Vinoodh; Matthieu Salvaing captures the classical architecture of the Getty Villa; and Clare Richardson styles a shoot by Lachlan Bailey. Photographs by Roe Ethridge, Olivier Kervern, Greg Harris, and Suffo Moncloa are also featured. Joan Didion's “Notes from a Native Daughter" returns to the pages of  Holiday  as relevant today as it was when it was first published over fifty years ago. Legendary film producer Art Linson fondly remembers growing up at the Knickerbocker Hotel in Hollywood; Christopher Simon Sykes illuminates David Hockney's early days in LA; Charlotte Cotton speaks to photographer Bruce Davidson; model Edie Campbell imagines a sinister and haunting Los Angeles; and Marie Eugene journeys to the Salton Sea. Culinary icon Alice Waters converses with Daniel de La Falaise; writer Cody Delistraty seeks New Age enlightenment on the cliffs of Big Sur; François Blet gets lost in San Francisco's alleys; and a secret beach town is the setting for a piece of new fiction by guest-editor Molly de La Falaise.

Il Pellicano - Tuscan Paradise

Private getaway resort of screen icons    Il Pellicano became the stage set of numerous parties, where at any time one could find the Fendi sisters drunk at the poolside on a sunny afternoon, while next to them Jurgen Teller photographed the latest runway favorite, spreading herself half-naked and tan over a chaise longue in Prada sunglasses and nursing a gin and tonic, hinting at the sultry revelry of the evening to come.   It was a Tuscan farmhouse converted into the most coveted and stylish resort of the 60’s,  visited by Fendi, Missoni, Sophia Loren, Brigitte Bardot, Jackie Kennedy… It embodied doubly the world of la dolce vita and la vie bohème, a place to which luxury and beauty were the passports   Legendary photographers Slim Aarons, John Swope and Juergen Teller are among those to have made pilgrimages to this secluded cliffside resort; the charmed existence of the establishment's residents has been immortalized through their lenses.

Le rêve éveillé est l'ordinaire de Stanislas Rodanski, son pain blanc et son café noir, une de ses façons de lever les lièvres d'une littérature sans genre ni limites.

Holiday Magazine No. 377, - The Argentine issue

After France, Holiday magazine is devoting its pages to Argentina. While Karim Sadli, Inez and Vinoodh, Jamie Hawkesworth and Jack Davison offer pictorial studies on the austral theme, Derek Henderson retraces the British travel writer Bruce Chatwin's legendary 1970s Patagonian trek, and Bruce Weber assembles a photographic declaration of love to the land of Borges. It's a myth that is also recounted a few pages later by Nelly Kaprielian as well as the great man's own widow, Maria Kodama. Meanwhile, the writer David Fauquemberg gets on horseback to follow in the footsteps of the Argentine folk icon Atahualpa Yupanqui; François Simon dines in the country's finest restaurants and meets up with the chef Francis Mallman; Michael Rips fantasizes about his future interment in Recoleta; Bertrand Burgalat sketches musical impressions of Buenos Aires; Philippe Trétiack weighs in on architecture; and Arthur Dreyfus sits down for the long interview with the Academy Award-winning director Michel Hazanavicius.

Salutations distinguées, Jean-Michel Tixier - Book

A comics and illustration enthusiast since childhood, Jean-Michel Tixier is entirely self-taught. He began his career illustrating the record sleeves of his friends’ music label Record Makers before his work caught the eye of great name brands and major publications. Jean-Michel Tixier draws the inspiration for his irreverent universe from his favourite major French, Belgian and Dutch illustrators, (Joost Swarte, Serge Clerc, Hergé, Chaland…). With its clear lines, solid colors and wide cast of characters, his work without doubt belongs to the clear line movement. This small book contains a selection of his illustrations published for over a year. Its sober style of "Ligne Claire" is out of sync with the comic and absurd situations in which the characters find themselves.

Le Cabinet de Curiosités of Thomas Erber - at colette, Les...

For the sixth edition of the Cabinet de Curiosités of Thomas Erber, Éditions M.R created a unique « bathrobe » coat. The piece is featured at colette in Paris from November 23rd to December 24th 2015. 3 QUESTIONS TO THOMAS ERBER: Mathieu & Rémi: The Cabinet de Curiosités is an old concept that you completely reinvented, where did the idea come from ? Thomas Erber: In 2009, I wanted to create a new space, with international visibility, which would allow me to stay connected to the fields of explorations that I had visited in the world as a journalist. But this time, I wanted it to be in a more creative, evolutionary and federative manner. Creativity is what man holds closest to himself, especially in his imperfections, which is why markets should be kept at a safe distance, so they can’t influence creativity. M.R.:  Is mixing fashion, design, graphic art, photography and film a new approach to curation ? T.E.: I am fortunate enough that starting from a young age, I developed a strong interest for a wide variety of things. If a person wants to participate in the Cabinet, I need to meet with them, like what they do, and verify their methods of fabrications. I traveled around the world for nearly 25 years in a quest to meet designers, chefs, photographers, musicians, and all sorts of different artists. The CDC is a way to convene my fields of interest into a central hub and also a way for me to give back a little of what musicians, writers and designers give me all my life... M.R.:  After going around the globe in London, Berlin, NY, and Bangkok, the 6th edition of the CDC is hosted at Colette, just like the first. How has it evolved?  T.E.: Really beautifully, both in the media and creatively. Each year, an increasing amount of artists participate and internationally acclaimed press coverage continues to grow. Despite all of this, it’s still a struggle to obtain funding and to find partners. But oh well, it can’t be perfect. It’s a challenge, which I find impassioning. If not this, better just call it quits now and die with your eyes closed.

Strange faces - Fellini’s castings

Fellini’s primary roles have often been endorsed by some of the best actors of his time. We know he directed Mastroianni as though he was his alter-ego, to the point “we never knew where Fellini ended and where Mastroianni started” - as Anouk Aimée recalls from the shooting of La Dolce Vita. Yet images Fellini’s films have left in our minds, long after we watched them, are the multiple strange faces of secondary roles, extras, unknown actors we have never heard of and never will. Fellini considered them as part of the  décor , spending a tremendous time to cast them. Some may say he invented street casting. When looking for the right face, he would publish a short add on local newspapers: “Frederico Fellini is ready to meet anyone who wants to see him”. Anyone: farmers, prostitutes, blue collars, magicians, beggars, bourgeoises, midgets, bankers. Hundreds of people would come to meet the film master in his home, leaving behind a photo that would then be meticulously classified. Over 10.000 pictures constituted Fellini’s casting library. How did he find his way through these pictures? Through over 200 categories of his own, among which: “interesting face”, “fat women with sensual face”, “repugnant head”, “voluptuous woman and a bit of a floozy ” or “the little queer”. We can’t help but wonder where he would have placed us... Our film selection is available  o nline  and at both Éditions MR  s tore locations .

After Japan,  Holiday  turns its gaze closer to home, devoting its pages to France and its aristocracy. While Karim Sadli and Annemarieke Van Drimmelen capture the spirit of castle life and the French Riviera, Olivier Kervern-whose cliché of the Château de Josselin appears on the cover–plunges into a world above time, pursuing the nobility into its most mythical and remote spaces. Alongside them, Jéromine Savignon examines the elegant company of Louise de Vilmorin, Natasha Fraser-Cavassoni tells of the Proustian dandy Boni de Castellane and American writer David Dodge, in a text that first appeared in  Holiday  60 years ago, shares the fruit of his wanderings in France in the 1950s. Nelly Kaprielian, meanwhile, offers a precious and rare interview with the mysterious Jean-Jacques Schuhl, Arthur Dreyfus talks about family and cuisine with Daniel de la Falaise, François Simon writes about his favorite tables and photographer Friederike von Rauch Berliner raises her keen eye to the immortal beauty of the Silvacane Abbey.

Carlo Mollino - an avant-garde life

Mollino was certainly one of the strangest and most fascinating multi-faceted creator of the past century. Known as an architect, he raced in the 1954'  24 Hours of the Mans   in a car of his own design, developed alpine skiing techniques and designed planes. A number of polaroid pictures of past girlfriends, prostitutes and strippers were posthumously found in his home in Turin. What was it that drove this man, passionate for the pursuit of beauty and eroticism, known and hated for his erratic temperament and penchant for drugs? We know of his constant obsession with death that led to a house full of fetish objects distending his eternal presence. Both a creative genius in his era and our own, Mollino left with us the mantra to his freedom: “Everything is permissible as long as it is fantastic.” Our book selection is available  o nline  and at both Éditions MR  s tore locations .

Few people have been so influential to both mainstream culture and counterculture as William Burroughs - the novelist was a defining force of the Beat Generation and the Postmodernist fervor of the 1960s. Along with Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac, Burroughs wrote The Naked Lunch in 1957. Considered too depraved for the American public at the fime, the novel was first published in Paris by Christian Bourgois in 1959 and remains Burroughs most esteemed work. In collaboration with Christian Bourgois Editeur, Éditions M.R is proud to present Burroughs' masterpieces  Interzone,  La Machine molle / Le Ticket qui explosa / Nova express,  Ultimes paroles  &   Lettres.

Allegorie Art Show 2014 - "Orange pattern"...

“A room decorated with safes. Here everything becomes suspicious. In the projected video loop, a cheerleader tirelessly tries to escape her pursuers while bystanders watch the scene unfold. Inevitably, something has happened. On a monitor, the scenes of cops, a black cat, a dark street and an old Mercedes flash across the screen. Everything is in place, although the audience seems to hear the sound of a police siren in the distance. While the outcome seems inevitable, the camera footage is ambiguous. Information on screen overlaps as shots of rocks merged into the end of a cornice. The audience will be forced to decipher and determine whether the safes are empty or what could possibly lie inside them” – Christophe Herreros This piece was featured at an Allegory Art Exhibit at Éditions M.R rue Madame, curated by Timothée Chaillou.

Michael Cimino's masterpiece Following the overwhelming success of The Deer Hunter, Michael Cimino wrote and directed Heaven’s Gate, the American-Western masterpiece starring Christopher Walken and Isabelle Huppert. Released in 1980, the film was a commercial failure – to the point it bankrupted United Artists, the studio that produced it. However, Heaven’s Gate today is appreciated as a seminole film in the genre and a brilliant epic. In collaboration with Carlotta Films, Melindagloss held a premiere at Beaubourg with featured speakers Michael Cimino and Isabelle Huppert. Over three hundred guests attended to view the film in its original long-form version. Our film selection is available  o nline  and at both Éditions MR  s tore locations .
