This reminds me more than anything of LOVE--not because Katie Grand and Carine Roitfeld have similar visions, but rather because they are both working on fashion imagery in which a kind of a commercial display of the clothes is almost beside the point.

And it makes sense. What contribution can fashion editors make in a day and age where, some noteworthy exceptions aside, dresses put on hold for the September issue of Vogue have been seen on celebrities months prior and on style.com before that?

^Im sorry but this crap has nothing to do with LOVE.
LOVE is way above this but again, when it started it wasnt that amazing either (at east the covers were good). Lets see...

I sincerely believe Katie has nothing to do with Carine. I mean she is a talented fashion editor but her vision doesn't have that extra half inch that Carine has...

I actually think CR Fashion Book looks pretty darn good. So glad to have Carine back at the helm of a title. The fact she founded her own publication tells just how much she is passionate about orchestrating a fashion magazine. No doubt the issues will get better and better.

I've yet to see it here in Los Angeles and I've been checking on a regular basis all the newsstands that carry these kinds of journals. With my luck, it's right around the corner from me at B&N.

Katie in my opinion is way better than Carine.
She has a maturity that lacks on a huge part of stylists and also she can be flexible but still have her signature style that you can spot in miles.
Carine not so much and the prof is in this magazine or book (for more pretentious it is)

It's out already. I picked up my copy at the Grove B&N this afternoon. It's reasonably priced ($15) considering the price tags of most European fashion magazines in the US. But that's all of it. I must say, the content is seriously underwhelming. I failed to see any cohesion and clear style. With all the buzz and hype until its final landing on the newsstands, this is so disappointing. I was hoping for a fashion magazine that's really unique, but other than the ads of Alaia (which is a shot of a napping puppy by Bruce Weber ), Christopher Kane and Anthony Vaccarello, which are pretty rare, I am not sure if any single page of the content doesn't look familiar, and it's very randomly organized. She really needs to focus her vision of fashion (if she does have one), and present it in a more convincing way in the next issue.

IMHO the first two issues of Love were terrible, tbh. The second issue was way, way, WAY worse than the first issue of CR Fashion Book.

The more and more stories and interviews I see from Carine, the more agitated I become. It's almost like she's contradicting the time she spent at French Vogue. Carine was the creator of this porno-chic movement. Why do I feel she's denying it, at each chance she gets? Every recent interview mentions it and her latest stories are the total opposite to what she used to produce at Vogue. The direction at Vogue and Gucci et al, was what made her a household name.. and now she decides it's irrelevant.

That's the reason why I'm un-interested in CR Fashion Book. Carine's Vogue raised the bar for the other editions. Yet Fashion Book seems to be the try-hard publication that is in denial.. assuming it's elite and favourable.

I doubt the admiration and love I have for Carine will fade out, I just wanted a more controversial magazine (or book). Quand Les Femmes with Linda, Stephanie and Carolyn is nice. It's the one editorial that has Carine's stamp. There's also a hint back to Roitfeld's Vogue Paris issues. Bravo.

That is a great editorial. I love the idea and the 5th photo is to die for. But somehow it looks very amateur,the execution is not the best.

And it doesn't make much difference to me if the model is Upton or some other bland blonde chick I don't care about, so I'll not whine about that either.
As for the CR stamp at the corner of the pages, I definitively doubt it would appear in the print, it's for the digital previews only.
Very well put. I'm very much looking forward to this. Hope I can get it in my country soon, the online pre-order delivery fees are outrageos.
