What’s in Lucire issue 38?

Most anniversary issues are nostalgic. This one, the closest to our 20th anniversary, isn’t: we’re preferring to look forward. We ponder whether the influencer has had their day; we talk to Coco Rocha, designer Brooke Da Cruz, and the king of avant-garde hair, Derek Elvy, as his Buoy Salon & Spa turns 30; and we have our “homecomings” to Tahiti and Montréal—though visiting the Moai at Rapa Nui is new. Find out what’s in our latest number, in print, or for Ipad, Android or as a PDF, or order right here

Lucire 2016 | The global fashion magazineThe two sides of Taika Waititi
As we celebrate our 20th anniversary in 2017, we take a first look back in our archives. In July 2007, Sylvia Giles interviewed Taika Waititi, the then up-and-coming film director. These days, of course, Waititi has directing credits such as Boy, What We Do in the Shadows, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, and he’s making it big with Thor: Ragnorok. Ten years ago, as is often the case with Lucire, we sensed he’d be the next big thing—and the Taika Waititi that many of us know today can be seen presciently described in Giles’s words
