Roberto Cavalli

Roberto Cavalli thinks American fashion is '"terrible." The Italian fashion designer is so disgusted by the state of the industry in America that he "almost can't look at it," and he places part of the blame on US Vogue magazine editor Anna Wintour because he believes she wants everyone to "dress the way she does."

"Just look at American fashion, which is almost fashion. It's terrible and you almost can't look at it, but it has been driven by a great journalist - Anna Wintour - who wants all women to be like her and to dress the way she does.''

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Independent,

Carine Roitfeld Not Competing with Vogue

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Editorials, News,

Carine RoitfeldCarine Roitfeld insists her new magazine will not compete with Vogue.

The former French Vogue editor - who was at the helm of the respected fashion publication for over 10 years - is set to launch CR Fashion Book and promises she is creating "something different" to what is already on the market.

"The name's not a big surprise, but oh well. [It is a] celebration of fashion and creativity. Vogue is a very beautiful magazine, an institution, and I learned so much working there. You can't put yourself into competition with a magazine like Vogue; you have to create something new, something different."

The magazine will be produced in New York and over half of its 50,000 copies will be distributed in Europe - priced around $10 - with the remainder in the US and Asia. The quarterly publication will also have an online presence focusing on art, culture and fashion and not otherwise present in the print version.

David Beckham ‘Honored’ by Elle Cover

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Editorials, News,

David Beckham on a mock-up cover of ElleDavid Beckham is "honored" to be the first male cover star of Elle magazine.The soccer ace - who is married to singer-turned designer Victoria Beckham - will be the first solo man to be on the face of the July issue of the prestigious British publication, which is dedicated to the London Olympic Games.

"Elle is a prestigious magazine with international recognition. I'm honored to be asked to be the first ever solo male fashion cover," he said.

Men have been featured on the front page of Elle previously but only in the company of a woman - Liam Gallagher once appeared with his wife Nicole Appleton in the January 2001 edition, and Kate Moss posed with Paul Weller in February 1997.

"David Beckham is a national hero, so we saw an opportunity to shoot a celebratory cover to support an historical and patriotic year. He is an icon and Elle is known for featuring icons on its cover. This is a first for us on the newsstand and I believe he is loved by men and women alike. Anyway, who doesn't want to see a picture of one of the world's most handsome men on the front cover of a magazine? It will be a collector's issue," said editor-in-chief Lorraine Candy, commenting on the development.


Carine Roitfeld’s New Magazine to Publish Twice a Year

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: News,

Carine RoitfeldCarine Roitfeld's new magazine will publish twice a year.

The former French Vogue editor has revealed some new details for the as-yet-untitled publication, revealing how often it will print and that she hopes to have it resemble a book.

"There will be no front of the book section and its emphasis will be fashion with a lot of freedom," she told WWD.

Carine flew to New York yesterday to work on the launch issue, which will be released in September. Speaking about the magazine previously she revealed it will launch with an English edition: "I am putting a dream team together to make a magazine. It's an ambition of mine to make a really iconic magazine that's fresh and exciting. There is no value in it being in French, it needs to be international and in English. It will be something less frequent than a monthly to make it more iconic, more collectable. I want to make something really beautiful, chic, different. I have to find a new way, so I am dreaming about it and working it out."

Comic Book Jobs: Editor

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials,

Hellboy Odder JobsApple One is an employment agency and as such - at least in the era of the internets - they’re being cagey about one of their more interesting job offerings.They’re representing a “large entertainment client” who needs an “experienced editor, specifically for children’s magazines.”

There aren’t many company’s who meet that description - Disney (their Consumer Products division) is certainly one, and Time Warner to a certain degree (but I checked the Time Warner website and nothing similar to this job pops). Marvel doesn’t have it listed.

But the contact info at Apple One lists the local office in Glendale, California, which is right next to Burbank. So, go play detective and see what you find.
