An Ode to Petri

c6bf5 blog An Ode to Petri

In gritty 1980s London, John Galliano was wrapping up his studies at Central Saint Martins, Leigh Bowery was hosting pansexual club nights, and Nick Logan launched The Face. It was a time of unencumbered experimentation—sartorial and otherwise. And it was during this era that stylist Ray Petri—the man responsible for the anti-glam Buffalo movement—emerged on the scene. Petri (formerly Petrie) laid the bricks for the eclectic British fashion scene of today. His editorials, which set the tone in magazines such as Arena, i-D, and the above-mentioned The Face, pictured rough London teens in unexpected combinations of high fashion, tough workwear, athletic clothes, underwear, vintage, and beyond. He created not only a look but an ideology that was universally recognizable. And now, the iconoclast—who died of AIDS in 1989—is getting a magazine named after him.

Founded by Zadrian Smith—a London-based writer, stylist, and producer who’s worked with such publications as Tank, Love, GQ Style and British VoguePETRI(E) Inventory 65 (the stylist would have turned 65 this year—published annually, the numbers will bump up accordingly) seeks to breathe new life into Petri’s legacy. Aiming to channel the man’s uncompromising, unfiltered vision, PETRI(E)’s editorial array extends far beyond fashion. The debut issue offers an ode to Petri by British Vogue’s Francesca Burns, a photo essay by Saiful Huq Omi that lenses the hope and strife within Bangladesh megalopolis, Dhaka (above), and an essay by Valerie Steele on her upcoming exhibition, Queer History. “I think there’s a vulnerability and honesty to each piece that I hope readers will appreciate,” Smith told Style.com. Also included is an editorial titled “Melody of Caged Birds,” (above, right) which, featuring Meadham Kirchhoff’s designs, serves as a visual antidote to the suppression of raw creative impulse. “Don’t get me wrong,” said Smith, “I know fashion is a business, but there needs to be a greater balance of business and creativity. At this rate, fashion will bleed itself of organic artistry.”

 

PETRI(E) Inventory 65 launches on May 20, and is available for preorder here

EXCLUSIVE: Bosworth and Topshop Show Festivalgoers How It’s Done

 

Coachella might have come and gone, but across the pond, festival season is just getting started. And if musical meet-ups such as Glastonbury and Lovebox are any indication, no one knows quite how to combine a muddy field, nonstop tunes, and bohemian threads like the English. In celebration of the Brits’ summer concert savvy, Topshop is releasing a full-fledged festival-themed collection. Available starting Friday, the sixteen-piece range pulled inspiration from Coachella veteran Kate Bosworth, who took some of the wares for a spin while in Indio last month. Topshop’s muse also showcases the line’s plaid shirt, denim cutoffs, and simple sundresses while dancing around the desert in a Michael Polish-lensed film titled The Road to Coachella. Ranging from $20 to $400, the capsule hits stores alongside a larger music-themed initiative, comprising Topshop playlists, an interactive worldwide festival guide on the brand’s Web site, and a series of secret international pop-up gigs featuring established and emerging artists alike. Watch the film’s debut (above) and take a first look at Topshop’s festival duds (below) here, exclusively on Style.com.
