The issue has a major dance focus, and is set to launch on February 21 in Europe and February 28 in the states. Simply titled “Issue 2″, the glossy features ballet star Sergei Polunin and dance legend Jacques d’Amboise. Roitfeld, who just revealed her debut spread as the global fashion director at Harper’s Bazaar, explained:
“I’m obsessed with the body of the ballet dancer, obsessed with the music and obsessed with the Russian tradition in ballet. When you are a dancer, you don’t get money. You do it because you love it. It’s so pure and beautiful — the freedom, the movement, the gestures.”
Of course, there are more than just graceful dancers, like a Bruce Webster editorial featuring bikini-clad Alessandra Ambrosio, Big Ange, and Irina Shayk, a Karl Lagerfeld-lensed spread in Scotland, and the first-ever editorial from Rick Owens.
But even with all the big named contributors, the mag still lost 25 ad pages from the debut issue, and only has 125 pages of advertising in its 340-page book. That might not be so bad since the print run has increased 15,000 issues to 65,000, and the issue will be $5 more expensive than its first. Postal workers should be glad to know that they have slightly smaller books to tote around now.
