When Carine Roitfeld resigned as editor-in-chief of French Vogue at the end of 2010, there was much speculation about whether she would launch her own magazine. After a myriad of stints that included styling for Barneys and contributing to V Magazine, it looks like the fashion icon is getting back into the print game.
By late 2011, Roitfeld had launched a book, Irreverent, and was already dropping hints that she planned to launch her own magazine. Now, Roitfeld has confirmed to WWD that the magazine will launch in September, and will publish twice a year. While the editor wouldn't reveal the name of the publication, she did tell WWD that the magazine will be more like a book, and will focus on "fashion with a lot of freedom."
In publishing a magazine that feels more like a tome, Roitfeld is taking a page from respected fashion publications like Purple and Visionaire, and considering that Roitfeld herself is chummy with the creative minds behind both (especially V), it stands to reason that she'd be getting some very good advice about the launch.
