The Kitsch Issue
Issue 18 (Winter 2017)
Sorbet’s winter issue is an invitation into the world of kitsch. Hold on to your hats as we champion unapologetic color, eclectic style and larger-than-life trailblazers. We celebrate the beauty of award-winning director, Wes Anderson’s surreal sets, question our obsession with tacky TV and check-in to the world’s kitschiest hotel. We also investigate Japan’s culture of cute and explore why tackiness and keepsakes go hand-in-hand. We flew to L.A. to meet our kitsch cover stars, Simi & Haze Khadra, who tell us all about songs with shrimp-hued flamingos and their obsession with kawaii. We also nipped over to Paris for a chat with Queen of Kitsch, Shourouk Rhaiem, the bling-centric jewelry designer as well as bring out the kitsch in the FW17 Ready-to-Wear, Haute-Couture and Resort 18 collections. So come on, step inside.
