When Carine Roitfeld, the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, resigned from the Conde Nast glossy at the end of 2011, we wondered what the femme fatale would do. Take up Mahjong? Nope. Roitfeld invested a decade of Vogue lessons into a personal magazine, CR Fashion Book, which launched last year.
Issue #2 is out and the theme is ballet (which she calls a "personal obsession") and includes a feature on 37-year-old French dancer with the Paris Opera Ballet, Marie-Agnès Gillot, and another one on the new generation of emerging dancers (like Ukrainian-born Sergei Polunin) to round out the editorials.
Frankly, we thought fashion had its Black Swan moment a couple years ago, but we won't complain at finding more arts and culture in style titles.
