Hot Off The Press:
The Gentlewoman Magazine
March 22nd marks the debut of The Gentlewoman, a Dutch biannual magazine we can't wait to get our hands on.
It was love at first sight when we saw the cover of The Gentlewoman, the new sister magazine to Dutch publication Fantastic Man. Featuring the timeless beauty of Celine's creative director Phoebe Philo, WWD reports that the feature on Philo was shot by David Sims and styled by W's Camilla Nickerson (two of our favorites). The editor in chief, Penny Martin, says that the magazine is “about modernity and women that are just fantastic."
The cover, with its simple, pale peach border and black and white photograph, harkens back to a simpler era in publishing, before the days of neon lettering and exclamation points (ie, "584 pages of fashion!"); plus we're all about women who are "just fantastic."
If the feature on Philo weren't enough (she was shot wearing her own clothes and a mix of vintage and contemporary Celine designs, swoon) contributors to the issue include designer Louise Gray, model Daisy Lowe, and critic Alice Rawsthorn.
For a taste of what we hope to see in The Gentlewoman, we leave with with a stunning editorial (one of our all-time favorites), aptly titled "Harvest" and styled by Camilla Nickerson from the April 2009 issue of W. Enjoy!
