^^^ What a fantastic interview. Porter really does have a strong identity versus a lot of the other major fashion mags right now. It's surprising, really.
I was shocked to discover that Red apparently outsells Elle, InStyle, Harper's Bazaar, etc. and sells almost as well as Vogue. I wonder how many copies of Porter are sold annually....
Really fascinating to read those interviews with the editors of Porter and The Hollywood Reporter. Both of those magazines are absolutely at the top of their game, producing cutting-edge, interesting content that the public is clearly eager to buy into.
Thank you so much for posting all these!
There seemed to have been some internal changes in Conde Nast Ukraine thus the delay in the release of the October issue.

Get PR today when you stop publishing them, get more PR tomorrow when you probably go back to publishing them... (bbc.co.uk):

Aww, first lads mags now Playboy. Another small triumph for Romola Garai, lol. No wonder Cosmo is toning everything down. Political correctness will be the death of pop culture. But then again, maybe it's the fashion indies which drove Playboy to this. I mean, when Miley is flashing her tits for Interview, or Kim her bum for Paper, who needs Playboy? Oh and neither of these two examples is 'art'. It's just glorified softcore porn.
I don't think Playboy's change is about political correctness which is a total dog whistle by the way... The internet is saturated with nudity and Playboy looks silly by continuing to run nudes as if they're the only one with them.
This is interesting news and I think Playboy is one to keep an eye on - it sounds like they want to be more like Rolling Stone, with great, in-depth articles and iconic, memorable cover shoots featuring celebrities. I think we will see a lot more actual celebrities (like Rihanna) on Playboy, shot by top fashion and portrait photographers. Looking at some of their 2015 covers, they have already classed things up a bit. Will they put men on the cover? Actors and film directors and politicians, a la Vanity Fair?
^Like Lui did.
Interesting article, Edwina sure has her finger on the pulse. She's exceptionally articulate too.
Speaking generally, if editors are investing less effort in editing their magazines, and spending more time generating revenue, no wonder print magazines are generally a dull affair these days.
I don't mean in terms of commercialism - they are glorified catalogues, after all - but in the standard of 'curation', the sense of an authoritative, experienced eye speaking to you, offering a view that adds to your own, even if the topic is simply expensive shoes or purple lipstick.
Proper mastery of the communication offered by print publications doesn't come naturally to most, and it certainly isn't enhanced by being good at Instagram or generating clickbait.
Look is a UK fashion weekly. Mark Frith seems to have been the editor of nearly everything, in his time (featuresexec.com):
This news truly surprised me:
