Style.com Magazine Page 1
On Halloween, the first issue of Style.com’s print magazine will hit newsstands. The magazine features a closeup cover of 17-year-old model Lindsey Wixson, a 23-page photo essay of her shot by rumored boyfriend and publishing progeny Theo Wenner, a comprehensive roundup of the Spring 2012, and a bunch of other fun goodies — but will the web fashion behemoth translate properly to print?
Many moons ago (or, you know, in April), we speculated on a rumored Style.com print edition. Style.com editor-in-chief Dirk Standen just confirmed the print plans to Business of Fashion, and our guesses were right on the money! What we weren’t banking on, however, was the fashion megasite going the e-commerce route.
We’re used to print magazines adopting digital platforms, but websites getting print editions? That’s pretty much of unheard of in today’s media climate. The people over at Condé Nast‘s Fairchild Fashion Group surely don’t think print is dead though, and they’re launching a print spinoff of Style.com to prove it.
