Even in this era of media shutterings, there’s a magazine—to update the old saying—born every minute. But Twin, which launches in London this week, hopes to stand out from the crowd. “With the instant communication of blogs and the Web,” says features editor Aimée Farrell, Twin “feels a little more simple, considered, and less throwaway. It’s an object to keep and covet.” Top three reasons to get your hands on the hardcover biannual’s premiere issue:
• Editorial pedigree: Farrell works by day at British Vogue (and by night as a founding member of the Voguettes, the title’s roving DJ squad); editor in chief Becky Smith was the founder and former creative director of the cult mag Lula; and art editor Francesca Gavin does double duty at Dazed & Confused and Elle U.K.
• Boldface contribs: The debut issue features articles by Miranda July, Garance Doré, and poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy, and fashion spreads by Dazed alumnae Mari Sarai and Carlotta Manaigo.
• Kim Noorda: The Dutch model has never looked lovelier than she does in this shoot by Ben Weller and stylist Naomi Miller. Lounging in bed reading Hemingway and spinning Neil Young records, she’s a laid-back apostle of Americana. www.twinfactory.co.uk.
