So some of you may remember that I like to read… alot. Sadly, I haven’t had alot of time to be reading with school and work going on, and the time I have been reading I’ve been spending on reading things by people like Malcolm Gladwell instead of the Derek Blasberg‘s of the world. Anywho, I need to get back into reading more fashion, especially since I am subscribed to a good many publications that just stack in my library, and so why not start with some online publications like Agent 2??
I’m not sure where I found out about Agent2, but I found it and subscribed to it. When I went to catch up on magazine subscriptions I saw that there was a new issue and so I flipped through it before perusing the website for a little while. I’m going to try to shoot through a quick runthrough.
- complexgeometries, which was featured in the issue is a very nice label. I went through the Autumn/Winter 2010 collection and found myself mentally ticking off pieces I would buy and wear.
- The article on David Koma was well written and I would only ask for more. Go in deeper, find something that I couldn’t find somewhere else. Try to either present the information in an interesting light, with a new perspective, or find something that hasn’t been found before. But the quality of writing was excellent.
- The article on Rad Hourani… had me feeling unsettled. I felt content with the information given, but I had the nagging feeling that the questions were in a sense asking the same thing and Rad Hourani just was able to answer the question and still provide more information.
All in all I thought the issue was ohkay. I say this not to bash, but I have come to expect real creativity in editorials for an online publication, just because of the publications I normally read and this editorial fell a little short. For a 6th issue, I just encourage the Agent2 team to work hard. I do believe they have an eye for talent, as those who were featured in the publication are talented, but I wish that they could just improve their coverage of said talent.
