Calvin vs Lanvin. Summer 2005


As TANK entered its fourth volume, we made our most radical leap forward yet, halving the cover price, doubling distribution and dialing up the experimentation. More for less, or democratic luxury? We preferred to call it elitism for all.

  • Vittorio Radice – Selfridges CEO – and Adrian Joffe – president of  Comme des Garçons – talk about the universe and shopping

  • Artist Christian Marclay reimagines the possibilities of the humble LP vinyl

  • Christopher Bailey, then head of Burberry, on pushing the classic company forward

  • Plus, Daria Martin uses robots to illuminate the human condition, the warped world of LA architect Greg Lynn and Shanghai’s young consumer army tell all about their brand loves and hates
