For me, this is probably the most exciting fashion magazine in the world.
Although I can’t speak a word of French, this magazine seems to have a great deal of personality and dynamism.
Almost every issue has a unique feel, sometimes they dedicate an entire issue to one single topic like U.S.A, British-ness, Italy, Kate Moss etc. anything which the editors find interesting. Although the magazine is awash with advertising and advertorials; all the editorial pages seem to have a sense of individuality and character, which gives the magazine a sincere journalistic feel.
The look of the Magazine is incredibly beautiful. It has this wonderful gothic/bohemian feel through the use of thick black bars mixed with some circus typefaces and a wonderful cut of Caslon.
The photography is bold, elegant, glamorous and everything else fashion photography should be. The juxtaposition of the images are also impeccable.
