Holiday Nº 379 The California Issue

Between 1946 and 1977, Holiday was one of the most exciting magazines in the United States. Renowned for its bold layout, literary credibility, and ambitious choice of photographers, Holiday portrayed the world like no other periodical. The premise was simple: send a writer and photographer to a specific location and ask them to capture their vision of the place without constraints of style, length or budget. Some of the most celebrated writing by Graham Greene, Joan Didion, Jack Kerouac and Truman Capote first appeared in the pages of Holiday. At the peak of its acclaim, the magazine had more than a million subscribers.

In 2014, after a thirty-seven year hiatus, Holiday returned at the behest of Parisian art director Franck Durand. This new Holiday remains faithful to the essence, aesthetic and sense of journalistic adventure of its forebear, but in a format that also celebrates fashion. Editorials shot by industry-leading photographers, and emerging talents alike, coexist beautifully with the work of today's top literary voices. And true to its original concept, Holiday still sends contributors afield to produce a portrait of place that is at once intimate and timeless.

Holiday is an international, bi-annual publication. The team who conceives, designs and produces the magazine is based in Paris.
It is written in English, but its heart is French.


After Korea, Holiday ventures across the Pacific Ocean to California to discover what truths lay under the glare of its mythical aura. Bruce Weber trains his lens on the cowboy culture of the West; “Vie Privee" showcases photos of Kelly Rohrbach by Inez & Vinoodh; Matthieu Salvaing captures the classical architecture of the Getty Villa; and Clare Richardson styles a shoot by Lachlan Bailey. Photographs by Roe Ethridge, Olivier Kervern, Greg Harris, and Suffo Moncloa are also featured. Joan Didion's “Notes from a Native Daughter" returns to the pages of Holiday as relevant today as it was when it was first published over fifty years ago. Legendary film producer Art Linson fondly remembers growing up at the Knickerbocker Hotel in Hollywood; Christopher Simon Sykes illuminates David Hockney's early days in LA; Charlotte Cotton speaks to photographer Bruce Davidson; model Edie Campbell imagines a sinister and haunting Los Angeles; and Marie Eugene journeys to the Salton Sea. Culinary icon Alice Waters converses with Daniel de La Falaise; writer Cody Delistraty seeks New Age enlightenment on the cliffs of Big Sur; François Blet gets lost in San Francisco's alleys; and a secret beach town is the setting for a piece of new fiction by guest-editor Molly de La Falaise.
