PHOTOS: What Do You Think Of French Vogue‘s Design Overhaul?
As former editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld readies herself for the launch of her new magazine CR Fashion Book stateside, current French Vogue boss lady Emmanuelle Alt is forging a new path of her own over in Paris.
WWD reported last week that the Condé Nast stalwart would see some changes beginning with the September issue, most notably the addition of new columns and sections featuring the Vogue brand name — much like how earlier this year the Harper’s Bazaar redesign sought consistency with new sections like “The List” and “The Escape.” But while we’ve seen images of Alt’s cover choices (Daria, Lara, and Kate the Great, bien sûr) and their respective inside spreads, the front-of-book changes have thusfar been a mystery. Until today, that is, thanks to The Cut and a handy press release from the magazine:
In anticipation of a shift in the mentality and behavior of its readers, Vogue has taken the decision to revisit the way it presents itself, without changing the fundamentals. A new layout, and new section organization have been designed to provide this iconic magazine with greater harmony, and better readability, rhythm and femininity, as befits the leading women’s fashion title.
So is the magazine new and improved, or just plain new? Judge for yourself below:
