Carine Roitfeld’s Initial Foray  By MILES SOCHA.

The name of Carine Roitfeld’s new magazine, closely guarded for months, has been in plain sight for a decade.“CR,” the handwritten initials that appeared under all her editor’s letters during her 10 years at the helm of French Vogue, will be scrawled across the matte cover of her new biannual, with the first issue slated for September… Roitfeld stressed it’s what’s inside her new magazine that counts, describing it as a “celebration of fashion and creativity” from a mix of well-known talents and promising upstarts — and that applies to the photographers, writers, models and stylists…

“Carine Roitfeld is one of the most talented editors in our industry. She deserves an editorial platform with which to express herself, and I’m happy to provide one,” said Fashion Media founder Stephen Gan. “I hope it will enlighten. I hope it will build bridges not walls. The fashion magazine industry has gotten too political.”
