Carine Roitfeld | CRFashion Book
Carine Roitfeld, whose highly anticipated magazine CR Fashion Book debuts later this month, has made friends with the internet and launched CR’s digital platform, CRFashionBook.com. Via the site, Carine, who became a grandmother in May, also announced the theme for her first issue: birth and rebirth.
“CRFashionBook.com is like an invitation into my home, to give the reader a glimpse of my world,” Roitfeld told The Huffington Post. “It will act as my personal diary to record everything that moves and inspires me.” One of the first morsels of inspiration Roitfeld has chosen to share with us is by way of her Editor’s Letter…
Roitfeld’s Ed’s Letter reads as follows:
When something is consuming your thoughts, you suddenly notice it everywhere. 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.
