We celebrate Karl Lagerfeld's birthday with a look back on our interview with him from Karl Lagerfeld interview on art and fashion: Eco-conscious clothing is forever a topic of concern and takes on many different initiatives, from luxury houses to more affordable brands.

Rediscover our interview with Jeanne Added from our issue 74 back in Uniform of the free. More than twenty years ago, in , Prada was launching its sport line Linea Rossa which would last until the mid s and would mark the Italian brand's entry into more functional-wear.
While leaving the hospital, Remington and Ballard begin an affair, one primarily fueled by their shared experience of the car crash not only do all of their sexual assignations take place in cars, all of Remington's off-screen sexual encounters take place in cars as well. Ballard becomes one of Vaughan's followers who fetishize car crashes, obsessively watching car safety test videos and photographing traffic collisions. Ballard drives Vaughan's Lincoln convertible around the city while Vaughan picks up and has sex with street prostitutes and, later, Ballard's wife.
In turn, Ballard has a dalliance with one of the other group members, Gabrielle Rosanna Arquette , a beautiful woman whose legs are clad in restrictive steel braces and who has a vulva -like scar on the back of one of her thighs, which is used as a substitute for a vagina by Ballard. The film's sexual couplings in or involving cars are not restricted to heterosexual experiences. Later, Vaughan and Ballard eventually turn towards each other and have sex while, also later, Gabrielle and Remington have sex with each other.
Although Vaughan claims at first that he is interested in the "reshaping of the human body by modern technology," in fact his project is to live out the philosophy that the car crash is a "fertilizing rather than a destructive event, mediating the sexuality of those who have died with an intensity that's impossible in any other form.

The film's climax begins with Vaughan's death in an intentional crash. It ends with another deliberate crash where Ballard rams his wife's car, as she unbuckles her seat belt intentionally. As he caresses her bruised body on the grass median near the crash, she replies that she is unhurt. As they lovingly copulate under the overturned car, the film ends with Ballard whispering in her ear, "Maybe the next one", implying their fetish involves death.
The film was extremely controversial, as was the book, because of its vivid depictions of graphic sexual acts instigated by violence.

In response to this outcry, the British Board of Film Classification BBFC inquired with a Queen's Counsel and a psychologist, none of whom found any justification to ban it, and 11 disabled people, who saw no offense with its portrayal of the physically challenged. The film was still banned by Westminster Council , meaning it could not be shown in any cinema in the West End , even though they had earlier given special permission for the film's premiere, and it was easily seen in nearby Camden.
The ratings controversy has now subsided and the film is readily available on DVD. The American NC version was branded with the tagline "The most controversial film in years".
