The New ‘Tar’ Magazine Is Kind of Like ‘Purple’

Shoppers eye boots.

We just got our hands on the first issue of tar magazine, complete with new magazine smell and everything. BlackBook founder Evanly Schindler and former worldwide advertising and communications director for Diesel Maurizio Marchiori created the new title. They call it “more of an art book than a magazine” and describe the content as a mix of “art, culture, fashion and social consciousness.” It reminds us of Purple, but perhaps a tad less on the edge. The 300-page tome, weighty with fashion ads, includes a feature about overpopulation, an editorial by Arianna Huffington, and a dialogue between artist Matthew Barney and film director David Cronenberg. As for fashion editorials, photographer Ryan McGinley shot a handful of models nude for a 32-page spread. You see one of those shots here. Click through for the NSFW content.
