CR Fashion Book
Carine Roifeld has branched out on her own as the ultimate fashion editor. As you may know, she once held the title of editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris from 2001 to January 31, 2011. She is a former fashion model and writer, and now fashion icon and editor at large for her own fashion publication.
CR Book is Roitfeld’s new magazine and is set to launch this September! Her handwritten initials will sprawl across the matte cover of the biannual mag, and will serve as her logo. She is aware that the title is not the most creative, Roitfeld stating to WWD “The name’s not a big surprise, but oh well,” it is what she is recognized for.
The Fashion Media Group LLC, the New York based company who is responsible for Visionaire, V and VMan, will be the publisher to CR Fashion Book. The Fashion Media founder Stephen Gan shows his enthusiasm about the new publication, “Carine Roitfeld is one of the most talented editors in our industry. She deserves an editorial platform with which to express herself, and I’m happy to provide one. I hope it will enlighten. I hope it will build bridges not walls. The fashion magazine industry has gotten too political.”
“I’m in the middle of searching for new talents, and it’s so exciting and energizing,” Carine has said about the process.
The fashion book will hit stands this September, and is said to retail at $9.95. Things to look forward to this fall! <3
