Velvet December 2006 : Bianca Balti
Premiere issue of La Repubblica's new monthly stand-alone glossy supplement Velvet.



Velvet will cover the latest trends in fashion, beauty, design, lifestyle, in the context of an extraordinarily refined graphic layout signed by Creative Director Joel Berg. Editor-in-Chief is Michela Gattermayer.

Velvet offers an innovative outlook and a unisex approach that transcends that of traditional women's magazines. It says no to gosssip, and no to fixed headlines. With two exceptions. Each issue will feature a designer portrait - first out is the story of Coco Chanel - as well as fashion commentary by a prominent journalist.

The launch issue of 580(!) pages also includes an exclusive feature with 26 designers' interpretations of velvet, interviews with Gore Vidal and Emmanuelle Seigner..

On optional sale with La Repubblica, each issue will be available at newsstands for one month.

I don't like Bianca and I don't like the cover, but I'm actually pretty curious what this will be like... Did anyone get it yet?

1 must be a special price for the launch issue, right? That's nothing!

It doesn't look super interesting, and I don't like the layout... but for that price, great!

I posted an ed with the lovely Gertrud here.

1 must be a special price for the launch issue__ dont think so cause usually La Repubblica's supplements are very cheap. the weekly D costs 30 cent. so 1 euro (or around 1 euro, in the future) im pretty sure it's pratically the definitive price

I saw an ad for the January issue (Lily Cole on the cover) and it said Euro 1.90. But that's still really cheap. I wish I could get it here.
