Wallpaper, the October issue
Tomorrow is on sale the October issue of Wallpaper*. The international design/fashion/ lifestyle magazine invited Karl Lagerfeld and Philippe Starck as guest editors.

Starck issue stands out with first triple-layered, transparent front cover. It depicts an amoeba, a monkey wearing shoes, and a question mark. ‘It is my mission to make intelligence sexy,’ says Starck. And now, my question: which of them?
