FAULT Magazine Issue 20 – the Faces Issue will feature reality TV star and global style phenomenon Kylie Jenner as its front cover feature this Spring. As one of the most widely followed personalities on social media today, Kylie is already a bone fide tastemaker at the tender age of just 17.

FAULT’s exclusive shoot with Kylie runs over 12 pages inside the issue (in addition to the front cover) and also includes the issue’s Style section cover – which is available as a special edition front cover edition in its own right.

Shot in LA to meet the ‘Faces’ theme of FAULT’s landmark 20th issue, renowned celebrity photographer Lionel Deluy captures the ‘real’ Kylie Jenner. Elegantly and simply styled by Monica Rose, the shoot showcases a side to Kylie that she herself admits in her interview is something “…that people don’t see” in her usual social media output or TV appearances.

In her interview, Kylie discusses her thoughts on ‘significant others’, the pressures of fame, how her public persona only shows one side to herself, her views on materialism versus spiritualism and how she deals with criticism of herself and her family.

Interview by Heather Seidler, Production by Zizi Zarkadas, Editorial Direction by Leah Blewitt, Make up by Rob Scheppy for Cloutier Remix, Hair by Castillo using JOICO at TMG-LA.com, stylist’s assistant: Jill Jacobs

FAULT: At just 17, you’re already one of the best known personalities in the media today – and one of the most followed on social media. Do you feel that people look up to you in that respect? Is there any pressure or obligation that comes with that, do you think?

Kylie: I never feel pressure to be a good role model. I always try to do my best to inspire people to be good and do the right thing, but I just can’t live my life always trying to be a good role model. I try to be the best I can be, but it’s hard sometimes. We’re all human. I just like to live each day and just be me and be real.

I definitely always feel pressure to act a certain way, but I try my best not to let it affect me – although there are times where I’m not totally myself because of that. Even at the mall I feel like I can’t totally be myself. When I’m not in public, I try to always be with my friends, so I can totally be myself and not have to worry about people judging or watching.

Is there a difference between the person you are on social media as opposed to the ‘real Kylie’, that is,the person you are when you’re with your friends and family?

People are going to judge you no matter what you do. So now I feel like I haven’t been open as much as I used to be. I haven’t really been letting my fans get to know me a lot; I closed down a little. I love to connect with people, but it became just a bigger door for people to judge me. I feel like, growing up, I haven’t had a lot of room for error – I don’t have room to make mistakes. You need to make mistakes to grow and learn, but I’m just a little different because the whole world is watching me, every single thing I do. So I closed my door a little, just until I get a bit older and then I’ll probably get back into it. On Instagram I’m like a different person almost, I just show people what I want people see.

 

So what are you like behind closed doors then? What really makes you happy?

I have to feel like I’m OK with everyone I love in my life. I never want to have bad beef with anybody. I always want everyone to be happy. Also balancing work life and personal life so I never lose myself. Lastly, I don’t think I need a significant other to be happy because I always like to find that for myself, but I think that it makes me a lot happier when I’m sharing my life with somebody.

On growing a thick skin:

“Being in my family, under scrutiny all the time… it affects the other people around me. My friends can get freaked out when they come into my world. It’s sad when you really think about it. There have been so many people that come into my family’s life that can’t handle it. And we handle a lot. The more people love you ,the more there’s going to be people who hate you. So I just feel like the girl who is an easy target to talk about. It’s definitely been crazy, but I feel like we all have trust that we’re in it together and we try to focus on the positive.”

On what people would be surprised to find out about her:

“There’s definitely a spiritual side to me and I honestly want the best for everyone. I’m not materialistic, I love clothes and all that stuff, but I don’t need it to live. I feel like, not that I’ve had everything, but once you feel you’ve had everything at a young age, you can either go down a path of being spoiled and self-centered, or you see it isn’t everything. I’ve found ways to really enjoy life. But people may get the wrong idea. Having a reality TV show, everyone feels like they know you, but that’s only 10% of my life. There’s a whole other side of me that people don’t see.”

The Cranleigh Boutique – visit whimsical Windermere for a wonderful UK Valentine’s Day retreat

cranleigh-boutique

The Cranleigh Boutique Hotel, Windermere, Cumbria (UK)

We’ve occasionally been accused of being too London-centric here at FAULT. But while it’s true that a lot of what we cover here in the UK happens in and around the capital, that doesn’t mean that we’re not interested in getting away from the big smoke every once in a while – or, more accurately, as often as we can! With Valentine’s Day just a few days away, we’re ready to jump at the chance to get out of town for a few days, and where better than one of the most naturally beautiful sites in the UK to do precisely that?

Although London on “V-Day” has its charms, anyone looking for the quintessential romantic retreat could do a lot worse than the rolling, rugged but simultaneously verdant backdrop of the Lake District. Cumbria’s Windermere cushions the famous lake of the same name and epitomises the idea of (hipsters look away now) quaint, English countryside in a way that few other destinations can manage.

Th Cranleigh Boutique’s ‘Hideaway bedroom’

Tempted? If you’re not yet then you soon will be: Windermere manages to combine its idyllic setting with a plethora of outdoors activities and some truly spectacular hosptirality options – many of them at totally unspectacular prices. Right up there on our FAULT Favourite retreats list is the Cranleigh Boutique, perfectly located a short walk away from Lake Windermere itself and the village centre of Bowness-on-Windermere. The 5 star hideaway hotel is listed as the number 1 hotel in the area on Trip Advisor and the second best in the whole region of Cumbria (out of 175 in total) – and they are currently offering a fantastic ‘2 Night Winter Warmer’ deal that will be sure to keep the heat in your Valentine’s Day celebrations.

FAULT Focus: Differio.com founder Jimmy Chrabieh introduces the unique online menswear retailer

Jimmy Chrabieh, founder and CEO of Differio.com

Jimmy Chrabieh, founder and CEO of Differio.com

FAULT: Differio.com introduces itself with a big claim: that you are different to all other online men’s fashion outlets. What exactly is it that sets you apart from similar websites?

Jimmy: We don’t sell clothing. We sell a feeling. Because we believe it’s not what you buy that’s important, it’s what you feel after you have bought it. We see our pages as an ongoing fashion show that feature live models embracing original designer creations from their latest collections. We showcase clothing and accessories that are unique, yet affordable, to our customers.

This dedication to originality doesn’t stop with the product. Have a look at www.differio.com and you will see it is clear this isn’t your stereotypical e-commerce company. All of the models’ pictures are created against a background of music. With a new style of photography and its own unique look, the website resembles no other out there. It’s daring, edgy and bold, featuring original clothing, but the flow is still easy to navigate. No bombarding sales promotions, no womenswear, no kidswear. It is simple, yet different. We stay away from all other online men’s outlets. In fact, we have no interest in what others are doing, instead, we are looking to make a new path all our own.

IMG_5349

You provide men with a unique perspective on fashion by offering them products by independent designers. Can you tell us a bit about that process – how you select the designers and how you persuade them that Differio is the best place to sell their designs online?

Because we don’t believe the world needs another retailer, Differio aims to be both magical and meaningful; inspiring our customers by being different. It is about getting to know yourself and finding that source of expression. It’s about being connected with the very essence of who YOU are and being confident about it.

We try to look for designers with liberal creative identities, designers without limitations. Creativity has no borders, and our team has traveled the 7 continents on the lookout for creative designers, new ideas and original fashion expressions.

Originality is our core ideology and defines the character of our organization and what we stand for. Talented designers have a reputation for eccentricity and originality, so they go hand in hand with our company. The designers we carry share with us the same values, and we offer them a unique platform to reach the target they are looking for, a top-notched palette to portray their creation in a more appealing way.

In the beginning, we got some rejection letters from brands who did not understand our vision or who wanted to impose their vision upon us. But we stayed strong and true. Our core essence will never change; originality and liberal expression is Differio’s soul. Today we receive plenty of requests from designers, both independent and renowned brands, which would like us to feature their products on our website. Unfortunately, we cannot carry them all and, while we maintain close ties with everyone who has approached us, we try to select only the crème de la crème of each season when it comes to our website.

Describe your ideal customer – to what type of person is Differio meant to appeal?

Our designs are for the man of today; he who is an explorer, sophisticated, and unafraid to create his own personal style. We want to appeal to the bold and courageous trendsetters, those whose experiments with style go far beyond everyday fashion dynamics.

IMG_0350

How do you reconcile your key selling point of offering a unique selection of styles (independent designers) with your decision to also stock major labels alongside them?

While we promote independent designers’ work, we still carry major brand labels on our website like that of French Connection, Staff Jeans, Jetlag USA, MC2 St Barth, Gregg Homme and more… Our clothing stock model consists of selecting the best designs out there, whether from unknown designers or mainstream, we are always seeking unique creations. We don’t carry the full lines of the brands we have, we only select what we feel our target might be interested in. While other websites focus on the choice as a key business driver, we focus on emotions. Our customers are unique; therefore they look for unique clothing.

You clearly take your philosophy of supporting independent and emerging designers very seriously. Can you recommend us two up-and-coming designers – one from your site and one whose designs you’d like to be selling but aren’t right now – to look out for over the course of 2015?

That’s a tough one. We carry a lot of independent designers and it is really hard to recommend one over the other. I will give my personal choice here: designer James Calehan from LA did a great job this season, a great collection of trousers, cardigans, beautiful shirts boasting bespoke prints, luxury fabrics, fine-fitting cuts and unmistakable detailing. My other favorite is a denim brand called The Hot Child Junk Jeans by Florida designer Octavio Silva, who introduced a new line of jeans specifically designed with a man’s “anatomy” in mind. Both designers’ creations are sold online exclusively at Differio.

When it comes to who I would like to see on our website, I have my eye on many! What crosses my mind at this moment is the Bulgarian brand Demobaza from designers Demo and Tono. I think they’ve done a very good job by creating a new style of deconstructive uniforms.

IMG_0806

Judging from some customer feedback we’ve read, a few of your customers obviously set great stock by the fact that you are based in the USA – Manhattan, NY, to be exact! Is that something that you also feel is important and, if so, why?

New York is undoubtedly the fashion capital of the world (according to the Global Language Monitor ranking 2014). New York is a great hub of inspiration, it has thousands of showrooms at your fingertips, the world’s renowned fashion universities like Parsons and FIT, and of course, a great infrastructure for technology and importing and exporting.

However, only a few e-commerce fashion companies are based here; many are situated in London, Italy, Stockholm etc… Even stateside, large retailers often choose other locales including California and even Ohio. While this may be good for a company’s bottom line, for some, it may result in being removed from the epicenter of the fashion world. For those of us at Differio.com, we know that to be a trendsetter, one must exist where trends are created. We wanted to bring a unique and decidedly ‘New York approach’ to menswear out of our Manhattan offices.

You only started Differio last year but what would you say has been your greatest achievement/proudest moment so far since your launch?

There was more than one moment where we felt proud of what we did, from famous celebrities buying our clothing to the thousands of beautiful words we received on social media and in emails. I have to say, though, that selling out of certain items from the first day of launch – that made me forget about the year of hard work and endless preparations. It was a big sign for me that Differio is set to make a difference in the world of fashion!

Where do you see the company in a year’s time?

The Journey is what brings us happiness, not the destination. In the meantime, we would like to create maximum awareness and introduce Differio to every fashion seeker in the world. We want to strengthen our image as a unique portal and aim to improve customers’ opinions of our organization significantly within the next year.

IMG_9108-Edit

And what about 5 years’ time?

To be the leading menswear fashion inspiration, saving the world from boring stereotypes!

Who or what are your personal fashion inspirations?

- Dolce & Gabbana – the suits from their summer 2015 collection were brilliant.

- Vivienne Westwood - I love how she brought modern punk and new wave fashion into the mainstream

Last but not least, my everyday encounters with people I see walking in Soho, the Village, even Williamsburg. Charismatic people draw attention, they automatically energize you and motivate you to step up and be inspired.

What is your FAULT?

I can’t stand fashion faux pas.
