Wallet Issue 1
Wallet is a publication for your pocket – a small start to a larger conversation on the fashion industry and how it operates and capitalises on us. With a sharp pen Wallet applies political dimensions to the sleek surface of fashion.
In this first issue, “Admins of Authority”, we look at authority and dive straight to the core of a contested topic in the fashion world. Who’s got the power? This issue’s text conversation takes interest in how those who are on top of the fashion game regard their power. We have selected three forms of power, CEO Adrian Joffe, buyer Sarah Andelman and publisher Jefferson Hack, in order to facilitate a text conversation on authority, and who administers this. This issue’s visual conversation asks those that are affected by this power to use their craft to shape a relationship to what that power is a symbol of to them, featuring A Magazine, BLESS, DIS, Eckhaus Latta, Kaari Upson and Torbjørn Rødland.
