Lullaby shot by Jean-Baptiste Mondino for CR Fashion Book
After an excruciatingly long wait, at last we can get our greedy mitts on Carine Roitfeld’s new magazine, CR Fashion Book. Well almost, it is coming out next Thursday, the day before London Fashion Week starts. What a warm-up that will be!
The twice yearly fashion magazine sounds to us like it will be a fresh new publication, one exactly how Roitfeld envisioned, now that she no longer is constrained by being part of a huge brand as she was with French Vogue.
