Ritz was in theory Britain’s answer to Interview, thouigh it was far too British to be anything close, which is both good and bad. It’s a fairly restrained fashion and society paper, with what in retrospect appears to be carefully selected content and contributors. Issue 1 has Charlotte Rampling on the cover, Patti Smith inside it, Jordan, Paul Morrissey by Penelope Tree, lots of Seditionaries stuff, Amanda Lear and 2 and 3 have Jerry Hall, Bryan Ferry, Pat Booth, Yves Saint Laurent, Catherine Deneuve, Norman Hartnell and more. Crazy when you think about it.
