I have to disagree here! I feel like this is a really strong issue content wise - the features on Valentino and Oscar de la Renta are really great pieces, and I feel that the editorials are much stronger compared to some of the other UK publications. Cara's editorial is actually very, very good when you read the feature on car-boot sales, which is such a good departure for Vogue.
In terms of the 'London' thing, I may be biased since I live here, but I can understand their obsession. London is the most talked about city in the world at the moment thanks to the Jubilee and the Olympics, even now after they're both finished. Plus, you have to take in to consideration British Vogue's main readers and worldwide readers - a girl from, say, Manchester (as an example) mightn't be overly interested in reading a feature about a place she's lived all her life, and an American reader mightn't even know where Manchester is on a map! It's a hub for them to focus their work.
I feel this is one of the strongest issues Alexandra and the team have put out this year. It's very fashion-centric, and the features are all very relevant to what's going on. Kudos to Shulman and the team, I may have to buy a second copy to rip pages out to put on my wall
I may not be perfect, but neither was Tom Ford SS12. And that's good enough for me.
