The bond between fashion people and food people is pretty damn intense right now. Look at Karlie Kloss's collaboration with Momofuku. And the lifestyle-ization of Bon Appetit. Fashion people want to eat good food. And food people want to look good. Cherry Bombe, the new magazine from Harper's Bazaar alumni Kerry Diamond and Claudia Wu, is made specifically for those people. The focus is women in food, and women who love to cook, so there are interviews with Karlie Kloss, Sofia Coppola (!), Garance Dore and chefs including Prune's Gabrielle Hamilton, The Breslin's April Bloomfield, and Tennessee pit master Helen Turner. "There are so many people doing interesting, beautiful things in and around the food world," says Diamond. "Our cover girl Karlie Kloss is a great example with her Milk Bar Karlie's Kookies project. So is the artist Jennifer Rubell and food stylist Victoria Granof. It's not just about being a chef. And we promise only one cupcake photo and one cat photo per issue."
Ah, fashion party food. Anyone who's ever been to a fashion event, or any fancy holiday party for that matter, knows what we're talking about here: The bounds of teensy-tiny, too-adorable-to-not-consume h'ors doeuvres that always seem to be hovering just an arm's length away. Maybe you came right from work and haven't had time to eat a proper dinner. Maybe that model-slash-cater waiter carrying the deviled quail eggs has been giving you the eyes since you first walked in (or... hasn't he?). Whatever the reason, there you are. There they are. You have one choice: To eat, or not to eat. So what'll it be?
Kenzo knows the fashion pack has a sweet tooth (even if they talk a big game about their pre-fashion month diets/juice cleanses/fasts). For their fall show last season, Kenzo creative directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon flew Magnolia's bakers over to Paris and had individually boxed cupcakes placed on every seat. This season, they were back to their sugary-sweet ways and, obviously, we were psyched.
