Carine Roitfeld is one of those genius within the industry. Ever since her first day at Vogue Paris as the chief editor she kind of revolutionized and agitated the way of looking at fashion. Her point of view stated so much of what not only the fashion industry is inspired of and relied on, but also topics that are relevant and present in the society. Topics like plastic surgery, children as models and smoking were all captured in her editorials and it was always very contemporary with debates within the industry. Anyhow, in her semi-annual magazine-books Roitfeld is influences by her surroundings – like the birth of her grandchild in her first issue ‘Rebirth’. And as I have mentioned before, her second issue is inspired by ballet and contemporary dance. That is why through-out the book dance is the topics of her editorials. In ‘Blood and Roses’, the beautiful super-model Sam Rollinson is captured by Anthony Maule in poses inspired by the just dance and styled in gorgeous SS13 pieces like the Balenciaga bustier and the quirky fur pumps from Céline.
I spotted the CR Fashion Book issue #1 in stores the other day and it really caught my eye. So I really wanted to share the beautiful cover, and some great photos from that issue. The book feature Kate Upton on the cover with the name ‘Rebirth’. Her daughter, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld is also featured in the book from the time she was pregnant. The issue is full of images and ideas of birth, pregnancy and family. The ‘Lullaby’ editorial features the beautiful Marie Piovesan photographed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino.
