The debut of the new magazine System is set to May this Spring and it is a deep-thought magazine about the fashion industry brought to us by an editorial board of very influential persons – Alexia Niedzielski & Elizabeth von Guttman (editors at Interview magazine and co-founders of Ever Manifesto), Jonathan Wingfield (former editor of Numéro), Thomas Lenthal (art director of the journal Paradis) and stylist Marie-Amélie Sauvé. Their aim is to explore the social environment of fashion in context of what happens when a designer leaves a fashion house or an e-commerce site overtakes a traditional retailer. First interview puts focus on Nicolas Ghesquière, who is photographed by Juergen Teller. I am really looking forward to this issue, not only because of the in-depth interview with Ghesquière but also since it is covering profiles such as Yves Carcelle and Azzedine Alaïa. For now, System will be released twice a year, and hopefully that will continue on.
Net-à-Porter feature, in their latest online magazine, their view on the It-girls of the moment. I kind of like the quote NAP wrote; ‘It Girls play an important role in the industry – they channel and pioneer new trends’ – very spot on. The It-girls on the NAP list are: Cara and Poppy Delevingne, Lady Mary Charteris, Bianca Brandolini d’Adda, Alexia Niedzielski and their absolute favourite Tallulah Harlech. Love the spread!
