The Biz: CR Fashion Book

After months of speculation and waiting we’re finally given a peek into Carine Roitfeld‘s new magazine – CR Fashion Book. Or more accurately a peek into the issue 0 mock up, this edition isn’t the same thing that will hit newsstands in September but it gives readers a good idea of the kind of content Carine & co. will bring to the market. The new publication is set to be published by Fashion Media – the company behind industry leaders like V & Visionaire and we’re sure to expect the same level of quality. In her interview with WWD, Roitfeld quoted the old Apple slogan “Think Different” as her motto for CR Fashion book and it seems she’s already changing the game. Unlike most glossies, the new magazine has no front of the book section. The focus is all on editorials and long form articles – a creative choice that is sure to please fans of evocative imagery and in depth interviews.
