Sting Fiorucci David Sylvian Caroline Baker RITZ Magazine No 54 1981
Sting cover by David Bailey for RITZ Newspaper No 54 from 1981
Sting is interviewed by Jo (probably Joanna Drinkwater) and photographed inside by David Bailey
This issue also features unique Ritz ads created especially for the magazine with their own photographers, including a brilliant Fiorucci jeans Ad shot by Neil Kirk and styled by Caroline Baker
Another fantastic ad 'A Handbag' - is 4 illustrations on the same page that are for 'A Handbag' The only clues are all the mentions of Barbara and a 'BH' on one of the bags - we think this is an ad for Barbara Hulanicki - The 4 'ads'/ drawings are by Patrick Procktor, Bill Wyman, Andrew Lloyd-Weber and Adrian George (see photo). We know from her website that after Hulanicki's iconic Biba closed in 1976 she "opened a series of clothing boutiques and started a make-up line, all under her own name" and also designed for Fiorrucci and Cacharel between 1980 and 1992
David Sylvian portrait by David Bailey

David Bailey & Litchfield were the publishers
