Just picked up the first issue of Archivist magazine. A beautifully produced ‘book-zine’, it features interviews with curators, designers and educators on their archives. This is so me! At £15 it’s a good example of where I think print magazines are going; quiet, considered content in a luxury, keepable format…
On another note, I was well chuffed to be invited to take part in this feature in last month’s Elle. I talked about my favourite SS12 trends which include Haider Ackermann’s silk tailored pants, Lacoste polo shirts and the whole pyjama shebang (in the picture I’m wearing a pyjama top by Marni, baggy dark-wash jeans by Levi’s Made & Crafted – here they are in yellow – and my favourite Dries van Noten boots). The best bit was I got to have my photo taken by the wonderful Henry Bourne. I think I scrub up quite well!

Couldn’t agree more about the future of magazines; print publications really need to be something special to keep people buying in the wake of so many consumers turning to digital formats, hence quarterly and biannual publications considering beautiful printing techniques and book type formats to keep people buying and interested in seeing content in print. Personally for me, online formats can never replicate the excitement of turning the page of a fashion magazine and the tactility it brings. Long live print!
Loved your feature in ELLE, your Dries boots are gorgeous!

When I began writing my blog I despaired of the way magazines and journals in general were heading. At some point during the last couple of years something seems to have changed and now finally there are publications with intelligent text plus a better variety of art, fashion and literature that does not seem so driven by sponsors. Maybe journals are finding they sell better when they have a more independent voice.
And yes, you do scrub up exceptionally well!
