Spring / Summer 2017
After Korea, Holiday ventures across the Pacific Ocean to California to discover what truths lay under the glare of its mythical aura. Bruce Weber trains his lens on the cowboy culture of the West; “Vie Privee" showcases photos of Kelly Rohrbach by Inez & Vinoodh; Matthieu Salvaing captures the classical architecture of the Getty Villa; and Clare Richardson styles a shoot by Lachlan Bailey. Photographs by Roe Ethridge, Olivier Kervern, Greg Harris, and Suffo Moncloa are also featured. Joan Didion's “Notes from a Native Daughter" returns to the pages of Holiday as relevant today as it was when it was first published over fifty years ago. Legendary film producer Art Linson fondly remembers growing up at the Knickerbocker Hotel in Hollywood; Christopher Simon Sykes illuminates David Hockney's early days in LA; Charlotte Cotton speaks to photographer Bruce Davidson; model Edie Campbell imagines a sinister and haunting Los Angeles; and Marie Eugene journeys to the Salton Sea. Culinary icon Alice Waters converses with Daniel de La Falaise; writer Cody Delistraty seeks New Age enlightenment on the cliffs of Big Sur; François Blet gets lost in San Francisco's alleys; and a secret beach town is the setting for a piece of new fiction by guest-editor Molly de La Falaise.
