If you are waiting for the September issue of Vogue Paris, you can expect a renewed magazine.
The magazine features a cleaner, airier design, with remodeled typography and the use of a craft-paper-like brown background — both of which hark back to its look in the Sixties and Seventies.
Some sections have been renamed to put forward the Vogue brand. The editor’s letter now reverts to its former title, “Le point de vue de Vogue” (“Vogue’s Viewpoint” in English). New features include a fashion opinion column penned by blogger Garance Doré.
Vogue Paris editor in chief Emmanuelle Alt and Condé Nast France president Xavier Romatet told WWD that the aim was to reaffirm the magazine’s point of view with a chic, timeless identity. “Vogue Paris must have a Parisian point of view,” said Romatet.
We do like the news, I’m just not quite sure the best way to announce a change is by putting “habituées” like Daria Werbowy and Lara Stone (such as Kate Moss) on the covers is the way to do so.
I’m very excited about the new Garance Doré two-page contribute to the magazine, though, “Humeur” is where the blogger and photographer will share her point of view aboout fashion. It will also feature her illustrations.
