Three Covers of Vogue Paris September 2012




The new covers of Vogue Paris are sporting new typography with top models Daria Werbowy, Kate Moss (she’s rumored to be appearing on the October cover along with George Michael) and Lara Stone gracing it, photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott.

Other makeover in the issue that will be out on August 23rd are, the magazine will features a cleaner, airier design, with remodeled typography and the use of a craft-paper-like brown background — both of which hark back to its look in the Sixties and Seventies; some sections have been renamed to put forward the Vogue brand; the editor’s letter now reverts to its former title, “Le point de vue de Vogue” (“Vogue’s Viewpoint” in English); new features include a fashion opinion column penned by blogger Garance Doré.

Below are more details quoted from WWD:

Vogue Paris editor in chief Emmanuelle Alt and Condé Nast France president Xavier Romatet told WWD that the aim was to reaffirm the magazine’s point of view with a chic, timeless identity. “Vogue Paris must have a Parisian point of view,” said Romatet.

“All the other Vogues carry a country name. Vogue Paris is the only one to carry the name of a city,” noted Alt. “Everyone fantasizes about Paris. It’s the concept of the ‘Parisienne.’ The ‘Parisienne’ is a girl who makes people dream worldwide, rightly or wrongly, a girl who represents a particular style, a taste, an allure.”

Romatet said they saw potential in capitalizing on the Vogue brand. For instance, “Zoom,” a section featuring Vogue editors’ favorite accessories, has been renamed “C’est Vogue” (“It’s Vogue”), while “Livres” (“Books”) becomes “Les Livres de Vogue” (“Vogue’s Books”).

The new layout is the brainchild of 34-year-old Germain Chauveau, who earlier this year succeeded Johan Svensson as artistic director of the magazine. Only minor changes had been made since the previous layout, executed by Fabien Baron for the magazine’s December 2003-January 2004 double issue. Prior to that, the magazine was art directed by design duo M/M (Paris).

The visual tweaks come 18 months after Alt succeeded Carine Roitfeld as editor in chief. “It is very important to make your mark on the layout, to have a magazine tailor-made for the content you want to have,” she said.

Alt said she wants to feature even more profiles, a move already noticeable in the August issue, but also more fashion stories centered on people who represent the Vogue aesthetic.

Doré’s new column is one example. Starting with the September issue, she will contribute a two-page feature called “Humeur” (“Mood”) with her view on a fashion-related topic, peppered with the blogger’s own illustrations.

The theme of the September issue, which runs to about 420 pages, is the color black. Three different covers feature Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy and Lara Stone wearing the same Dolce & Gabbana black dress and photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, who shot 64 fashion pages for the issue. There are also features on designers Iris van Herpen and Gareth Pugh.

The issue has 224 advertising pages, compared with 220 in September 2011.

In 2011, the paid circulation of Vogue Paris in France was 121,103, up from 121,055 in 2010, according to France’s Circulation Audit Bureau. “We are anticipating 2 to 3 percent growth in 2012,” Romatet said, pointing out that Vogue Paris is faring well compared to other publications. A redesign of Vogue France’s Web site, vogue.fr, has already borne fruit. The number of unique visitors to the site is up 35 percent since it was relaunched in February 2012, and advertising revenues on the site have doubled, Romatet said.

World Batik Summit 2011

Batik, a cloth that traditionally uses a manual wax-resist dyeing technique, has been associated with Indonesia since a very long time. But not until The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has officially recognized batik as an Indonesian heritage and cultural treasure in October 02nd 2009. Even though the exquisite fabrics can also be found in other countries, but now more people are aware that batik are originally from Indonesia.

With the new designated title from UNESCO two years ago as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity, batik is even more popular these days. Every Friday, here in Indonesia, most of people are wearing batik to the offices and work places to celebrate our lovely national heritage.

I got a wonderful opportunity to covering the Cultural Evening Performance during World Batik Summmit 2011 in Jakarta Convention Center couple of days ago. That night, a fashion show by 10 fashion designers from 4 countries was held in front of the high profile guests and invitations as the main event.

With more than 30 models, Carmanita, Ramli, Chossy Latu, Danar Hadi, Parang Kencana, Sebastian Gunawan and Anne Avantie from Indonesia are presenting their finest batik designs along with fellow designers from China (Lu Kun), Malaysia (Deanoor) and Japan (Kaoru).

Another fun part during the event was of course the rehearsal and backstage visit where I can snapped the models before and after the make up. The models for the fashion show are lovely and wonderful mixed of new faces and established ones.

There’s senior catwalker Dessy Mulasari and Nien (who opened the show), new face Hege at Look Models, top names such as Julia Jamil, Teuku Zacky, Katya Talanova, Drina Ciputra, Whulandary Herman, Ilmira, Advina Ratnaningsih, Dhining, Dominique Agisca Diyose, Advina Ratnaningsih, Selvi Rivera, Bunga Jelita, Renata Kusmanto, Hendy Bramantyo, Christina, Kimmy Jayanti and Indonesia‘s ‘IT‘ model of the moment, Prinka Cassy.

The make up that night was done by Sariayu team and it was soft smokey eyes with a dash of bright red lips and dramatic eyelashes to create the sexy yet beautiful feeling just like Polina at Damn! Inc. shown above.

Some of the models are sporting a sophisticated little bun with blunt bangs, some of them are having a simple slicked back low ponytail and the others are sporting the very exquisite ‘sanggul‘ or chignon (shown by Ilmira and Mungky) to completed the look by Indonesia‘s foremost Kebaya designer, Mrs. Anne Avantie.

World Batik Summit 2011 exhibition will be held until tomorrow, October 02nd in Jakarta Convention Center. So, if you want to view the amazing displays of various types of batik in one place, this is really the place you want to be. Just like the tagline “Indonesia : Global Home of Batik

A very special thanks to Tara Makmun, Panca Makmun, Andreas Yudhi and Armadina.

Amby.
