“The first drape I fell in love with was the loincloth worn by Jesus.” —Bárbara Sánchez-Kane

The September issue of frieze examines the world of fashion. Evan Moffitt profiles artist Bárbara Sánchez-Kane and Rosalind Jana convenes a discussion on style as a form of queer resistance with designers Sinéad O’Dwyer, Adeju Thompson and Paul Kindersley.

“Like a coat of armour, these clothes could make their wearer brave.” Evan Moffitt visits the Mexico City designer and considers the artist’s wearable sculptures as exemplars for disarming Mexican Masculinity 

Roundtable: Turning Heads 
“I definitely think what I is subversive.” Culture writer Rosalind Jana speaks with designers Sinéad O’Dwyer and Adeju Thompson, and artist Paul Kindersley about how their respective practices resist ideas of mainstream fashion. 

Also featuring
Ahead of a forthcoming exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Grace Wales Bonner speaks to editor-in-Chief, Andrew Durbin. Creative director KK Obi collaborates with artist Jebi Labembika on a major editorial feature examining second-hand clothes in West Africa and a transnational approach to recycled fashion. In 1,500 words, Shola von Reinhold examines the unacknowledged Blackness at the stylish heart of queer modernism. 

Author Fiona Bae zooms in on Korea’s skater street style; writer Rhonda Lieberman on artists as models and model as artists; poet Tan Lin looks at Shanzhai Lyric, a poetic research and archival unit; and academic Jeppe Ugelvig on fashion investing in artmaking and institutions. Plus, ahead of Isa Genzken’s 75th birthday, designer Phoebe Philo discusses the artist’s influence on clothing.

Finally, assistant editor Sean Burns writes on his beloved poster of photographer David LaChapelle’s Amanda as Andy Warhol’s Marilyn (2003). Plus, Going Up, Going Down charts what’s hot and what’s not in the global art world, and we bring you the latest iteration of our Lonely Arts column.
