EXCLUSIVE: Matches Fashion Unveils Its Third Issue of The Style Report
Magazines have been telling us where to buy clothes for more than a century, so it was only a matter of time before the roles were reversed and retailers began publishing stories about their favorite editors, models, and trends, too. On September 3, luxury shopping site Matches Fashion will unveil its third issue of The Style Report, its biannual print magazine. Available online and distributed to clients around the world, Eurostar lounges, and five-star hotels, Matches Fashion publishes two issues at a time—one for women and one for men—to cater to both shopping-obsessed markets. An exclusive glimpse at both issues debuts exclusively here.
This time around, women’s topics range from our current obsession with icons of the ’60s and ’70s (penned by Lynn Yaeger) to Linda Rodin’s unique approach to aging. The unconventional cover girl? Caroline de Maigret. The music-producer-slash-model-slash-Karl-Lagerfeld-muse clues us into the timeless appeal of French women just in time for her new book, How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits, to drop.
Though we do appreciate a girls-only attitude, we like to think we’d be just as interested in the men’s issue. After all, this one features The Hobbit‘s Luke Evans on the cover, an interview with Dior’s Raf Simons, and an in-depth profile of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. To celebrate the launch of both issues, Matches Fashion is asking readers to tweet and Instagram photos of their personal style, tagging #StyleIs, @MATCHESFASHION, and @MATCHES_MAN. The winner will be awarded a weekend of luxury—four nights at a hotel, a $5,000 shopping spree on Matches Fashion, and a $1,000 gift card to Space NK. In case you needed another reason to check their new arrivals page every day.
Below, see the final cover images for The Style Report Issue No. 3 and a behind-the-scenes video of De Maigret’s photo shoot.
