Absolutely not. When you are willing to pay 15€ for a magazine, an extra 2.50€ is not that much of a deal. But Paradis has doubled its price from 10€ to 20€, and now Purple is incrasing its own, which makes me wonder whether other French biannuals will be inclined to do the same.

I've seen that for Paradis, too ...

I don't know what's going on in Fashion Magazines business, srsly !

For Paradis, I wonder if this is not because they MAY plan to go on an annual publishing ...
And Paradis has some great writers with them ... So i guess the price is ok.
A bi-annual art magazine like 20/27 (only art critics texts) cost 30€ ... but Frog costs 12€ (which is more a right and fair price - i would say ...)

But people are kidding us ...
And please don't tell me it's the printing ....... Printing costs nothing (and I know that for sure ......... !)

Purple Fashion for 17.5€ ???? insane ! And no Max, it's not because you used to pay 15€ that you want to pay 17.5€ ... If nothing has changed, just f*** off !

What are the reason ? The recession ?? so Olivier Z. needs more money to pay his holidays, NYC travels and stuff ? Don't tell me he needs money to pay the contributors and workers ... They are either pay s*** or just nothing !

* I'm sorry but this is just proving more than Fashion instead of doing Vogue Nights, should just get a nap ! The whole business is just going so wrong and back to his elitist roots ! *

I agree BerlinRocks.

While magazines such as Vice survive whereas they're free, Purple is getting more expensive ? insane !

Cover of magazine by Terry Richardson:



Freja Beha wears a silk dress by Nina Ricci and a belt by Zac Posen.

The cover is in 3D with the words PURPLE FASHION and a tarot card of the Devil in relief.

Supplement cover:



An artsy fartsy collection of Black & White pictures.
