Reading through this, I appreciate that they've experimented with their page layout - and perhaps will continue to refine it over the next few months - but I have to agree with most of what's been said.

A lot of the elements on the page are so small that I found them hard to read in the full-sized version, so I can only imagine how unreadable they become in the travel-sized issue, as Sylwiasta has mentioned. To not consider how your page design needs altered to suit a scaled-down format goes beyond anyone personally disliking a certain design, into the realm of producing a magazine that functionally does not work.

There are sections that I liked looking through, but not enough to want to keep this issue around for any length of time. And the idea of tying the website and the magazine closer together... well, it's a modern malaise. In the rush to 'modernise' their magazines, editors lose sight of what actually makes a magazine a great reading experience. They lose sight of the physical magic of the printed page in favour of conceptual nonsense.

And in the end, if I want to look at the internet, I'll go online, and if I want to buy a good magazine... well, I wouldn't choose this one.

I really dislike the new design and layout. It was hard to know where the advertisements ended and the magazine began. I skipped so many pages thinking it was just an ad when in fact it was an article (One page feauturing lipstick,I think YSL,springs to mind).
