Embodiment. Autumn 2005


A magazine, at its best, gives physical form to what is otherwise intangible, full of thoughts you can touch and turn. This issue of TANK, in keeping with that ethos, sought to embody the most elusive but also essential ideas of the moment.

  • Prada’s Manuela Pavesi on a life in style

  • Swedish designer Lars Nilsson talks with Tehran-born, Paris-raised designer Ali Mahdavi on the extremes of art and fashion

  • Hesse McGraw on imaginary architecture

  • Plus, Bas Princen’s beautiful visions of modern leisure, Britain’s forgotten black radicals and Francisco Costa adds his edge to Calvin Klein
