The Full Low-Down on Carine Roitfeld’s New Mag

While she has been dropping heavy hints for months now, the details of former Vogue Paris Editor Carine Roitfeld’s new magazine have finally been revealed – and we are beside ourselves with excitement.  While we had already been informed that the title would be published by Visioniaire – the style bible publisher par excellence – and based in NYC, we now know that the biannual glossy will be called CR Fashion Book and that the first issue will hit the stands this September. Most excitingly we will finally be able to read La Roitfeld’s work sans dictionary as CR Fashion Book will feature full English translations.

Each edition of CR Fashion Book is set to focus on a theme (‘Obsession’ was the focus of the mock up for advertisers) and will follow the template of other niche mags by carrying only long-format articles and fashion spreads. What’s more, Carine’s early interest in working on a digital channel hasn’t been forgotten and the magazine will have a complimentary website with content across fashion, art and culture – something tells us we are going to be regular visitors.

So how much of Carine’s fierce- ness can we expect to see in her new venture? She tells WWD that she is seeking “new ways to be irreverent” with her shoots which she plans to be “not necessarily safer but different”. After her heated images of OAPs, sexualised shoot of the under 10s and championing of bondage and porno chic, we can only imagine what’s in the pipeline. Karl Lagerfeld in drag? Taylor Swift in Gareth Pugh?

In other news Roitfeld also announced that she will be starring in a feature-length documentary directed by Fabian Constant (the producer behind TV mini-series documentaries on Sonia Rykiel (2009) and Marc Jacobs (2007) and director behind W magazine’s film of Roitfeld at the shows during spring couture week). While the release date has still not been announced we can expect an insight into the backstage world of parties and catwalk shows – and a whole load more naughtiness than The September Issue.

And as a final CR update Roitfeld Jnr is a mere 6 weeks away from giving birth to her baby – meaning Carine is about to become the world’s most stylish granny!
