LONDON, United Kingdom — So intrigued were fashion industry followers when INDUSTRIE magazine’s first cover, featuring Anna Wintour, was leaked last week that the Internet was ablaze with rampant speculation about what this magazine about the “culture of fashion” might be like.
Over at fashion website Styleite, they were “waiting with bated breath” to thumb through its 196 pages. Sassybella implored its readers to “hunt down a copy” and find out who’s on the masthead. Members of The Fashion Spot wondered who took the cover photo. Was it Inez and Vinoodh? An outtake from Vogue Hommes International? And, everyone seemed to agree that this was going to be a unique magazine for the fashion business.
Indeed, unlike the legions of other fashion magazines hoping to be the next LOVE or POP, INDUSTRIE turns the spotlight back on the fashion industry itself, “as the first and only media title dedicated to going behind the scenes to chronicle the personalities, stories and defining moments in the world of fashion” through interviews with some of fashion’s biggest stars, as seen by the industry’s hottest photographers, stylists and writers.
Today, BoF has an exclusive first look inside INDUSTRIE as well as answers to all of those questions burning up the Internet, directly from Editors-in-Chief Erik Torstensson and Jens Grede, co-founders of the Saturday Group.
But first, to the magazine itself. Does INDUSTRIE live up to all the hype? Read more here
