Space Magazine No. 5
This product is currently sold out.
For our fifth issue of Space Magazine, we knocked on the doors – at home and at work –of those who refuse to follow a conventional path. On these pages, you’ll find a roll call of one-of-a-kinds doing it their way. To them we raise a glass. Here’s to everyone who has a terror of repetition – making it up as they go along.
Our cover star, the stylist Camille Bidault-Waddington, is just such a non-conformist. Ask fashion insiders, and they will tell you that Camille lands some of the most competitive gigs in the industry. But it’s not her impressive CV that convinced us to put her on the cover – shot in Camille’s Paris apartment by Casper Sejersen. Instead, it’s Camille’s authentic approach, looking for “real” inspiration instead of trawling Pinterest.
For our second cover, we took a trip with a raconteur. His name is Ricky Clifton, a man who texts in capital letters and calls himself THE ONLY DUMPSTER DIVER. Ricky is one of the New York art scene’s true cult figures – an interior designer to the art world, decorator, florist, ceramicist, inventor, antique dealer and former taxi driver. This spring, photographer Victoria Hely-Hutchinson and set designer Julia Wagner jumped on Ricky’s bandwagon, drinking tea with art power couple Helen and Brice Marden, hanging out by gallery owner David Zwirner’s multi-coloured swimming pool and drinking at the hypnotic bar in Rachel Fienstein and John Currin’s home. With our portraits of Camille and Ricky, we dedicated our fifth issue to the radicals, people with originality in their bones and outrageous ideas in their brains – from the worlds of design, architecture, fashion and culture. Some may be under-the-radar, others influential and recognised. But the individuals we meet in this issue all live in colour.
