Well before all the bloggers, street style photographers and online fashion commentators made their mark, one woman was shaping the direction of fashion. And it appears she still is. Ever since Carine Roitfeld’s departure from Paris Vogue, the fashion world has anxiously awaited her next move. It’s no wonder the launch of her online magazine CR Fashion Book, has been so highly anticipated. Aptly named Rebirth, the inspiration behind the first edition is best described by Carine herself. . .
“When I learned that my daughter, Julia, was expecting, I immediately began seeing babies and new mothers on planes, at fashion shows, in New York and in Paris. Birth and rebirth all around. I became obsessed. At the same time, I was thinking and dreaming about the first issue of this magazine, which you are reading now. This issue takes rebirth as its theme and is filled with both images and ideas about birth, pregnancy, and family. The promise of youth, the force of age, and the rush of all things new. It’s an escape, a fashion fairy tale. It’s a dream of a better life—because fashion is meant to make us dream.” – Carine
A sentiment that echos both the wonder of her magazine and Carine’s ability to always remain so relevant. CR Fashion Book is a visual fantasy for both fashion lovers and Carine followers alike, an intimate insight into Carine’s world, from the perfume she wears to the exact way she takes her coffee. . .
