Wall Street Journal - WSJ Magazine Fall Fashion 2008 : Diana Dondoe

TIMING IS EVERYTHING: The daily journalists at The Wall Street Journal have gotten a rude welcome to the slower pace of a quarterly glossy. While the paper’s new magazine WSJ has an interview with Republican vice presidential nominee Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin, the story is about her workout regime and doesn’t mention her as a candidate. Then there’s a story on Kate Moss and Sir Philip Green — but Moss gave the real scoop about her growing business empire to last month’s Vogue. And a story on the America’s Cup battle between Oracle’s Larry Ellison and Ernesto Bertarelli was extensively covered in Sunday’s New York Times.

Oh well — that didn’t stop Journal editors from boasting about their new baby at Wednesday’s unveiling. “This being the convention season, histrionics are the order of the day,” said Journal managing editor Robert Thomson. Blown-up panels of the magazine’s cover and inside pages were covered in a cloth that was then ceremoniously removed. There was a silence, and the magazine’s editor in chief, Tina Gaudoin, told the audience of 60-odd journalists: “I think that’s the point at which you’re all meant to clap.”

The Journal and its newish owner, News Corp., seem to have spared no expense for the rollout of the magazine, which has already included a global, multicity “road show,” for advertisers and other interested parties, and will stretch to several launch parties — New York’s is this Friday and Europe and Asia will follow.

Other articles in the launch issue include a well fashion shoot styled by Sarajane Hoare and photographed by Michel Comte, with fashion credits consigned to the back of the book. There are several jewelry stories, and a short feature called “Poochi Gucci,” about luxury dog accessories.

Thomson brought the red meat by hinting at a much-covered feud between his newspaper and The New York Times and its T supplements. He mentioned, but did not name, another newspaper that he said regards its magazine as “a house of ill repute,” and said the Journal, by contrast, welcomed its glossy magazine. Thomson said that the magazine had been so well received by the advertising community — it carries 51 advertisers, 19 new to the Journal, for a total of 104 pages in the issue — that the Journal was contemplating expanding more into magazines, though when pressed he said the thinking was not advanced. Advertisers in the launch issue include Audemars Piguet, Hermès, Burberry, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana and Versace, as well as some real estate and travel advertisements.

You're welcome kimair I agree & I can't wait to see what they've done. After all the publicity this mag has received prior to publication I'm expecting a lot. They have some good names behind them & I'm really looking forward to seeing what Sarajane Hoare has done.

Anyone know who the model is on the cover?

The paper dress was made by Roland Mouret. From what I've seen so far I'm completely underwhelmed... only one fashion editorial. I surely won't be running out first thing tomorrow morning to buy this. Maybe later in the afternoon... it's only $2.00 US so I guess I'll go ahead & buy it anyway. They certainly have a long road ahead to be considered as any competition with NY Times T Style as kimair said.

Editor's Letter
source | wsj

Quote:
Here’s what we know about you, the Wall Street Journal reader: You are smart, well-read, discerning about what you consume, opinionated and generous.

What we sense about you is that your interests are broad. With an appreciation that spans the arts, finance, collecting, design and philanthropy, you are a multifaceted, multi-talented group with a sense of humor.

In our launch issue of WSJ. magazine, you will encounter people and ideas that I hope you will find compelling and thought-provoking. At WSJ. we believe luxury is not about how you spend—it’s the way you live that counts.

Our second issue will be out Dec. 6. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the magazine as much as we enjoyed putting it together.

Sincerely,
Tina Gaudoin
Editor in Chief

Hmm, this new magazine seems very familiar to another newspaper 'occasional supplement' edited by the selfsame Tina Gaudoin, for UK broadsheet The Times.

That magazine is called 'Luxx' and it describes itself as:

Quote:
Luxx is an exquisite large format 64 page quarterly glossy magazine, dedicated to showcasing the very best things in modern life that money can buy.

Lavishly photographed and produced, Luxx brings the very best of Times journalism to the worlds of women and mens fashion, jewellery, accessories and watches, bespoke travel and hotels, design, property and collecting. The magazine speaks unashamedly, to upmarket Times readers, who have sophisticated tastes and a thirst for quality and innovation, and who are looking for knowledge and inspiration to guide them in their choices, whether its buying a pair of bespoke shoes, planning a rooftop swimming pool or commissioning a piece of furniture. The new luxury is not about it-labels: it is about authentic products, beautifully produced or well-sourced, and rare, individual pieces. In short, Luxx is an indispensable guide to the stories behind the best things in life.

Edited by Tina Gaudoin, with contributions from a range of Times writers including Lisa Armstrong, Tom Stubbs, Kate Reardon and Lucia van der Post.
(info from thetimes.co.uk)

The large format of Luxx is nice, but considering the contributors, it comes across as 'pretty vacant'.
