We looked back at the fashion of yesteryear with a story on ladies and their vintage wardrobes, Beth Ditto talked to us about modern etiquette and tales of love and marriage came from couples who’d said ‘I do’. We oohed and aahed over a collection of vintage plastic brooches while sampling the beers of the world and learning about Europe’s student revolutionaries. Um, and how to make lemon cakes. Don’t forget that. Interviews: Christina Ricci, Alison Goldfrapp, Parker Posey, Beth Ditto, Sonic Youth, Beirut, Cut Copy, St Vincent, Baseball, DJ Philippe Cohen Solal.
