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.
French crystal manufacturer Baccarat is hosting a couture week blowout this evening. And after 250 years in business, a celebration at Maison Baccarat is certainly in order. To fete the milestone birthday, the company commissioned three short films by directors Sonia Sieff, Joséphine de la Baume, and Chiara Clemente—all of which revolve around a love story. The series, titled “Legendary Stories,” will premiere at the sure-to-be sparkling affair. Sieff’s film, which stars Caroline de Maigret and Thierry Frémont, sees two ex-lovers rekindle their flame while swilling red wine out of brilliant Baccarat glasses. The heady work debuts exclusively here. And don’t forget to check back later today for our complete party report.
The 25th annual ANDAM Fashion Award ceremony will take place on July 3, and today it was announced that seven new judges will be joining the expert panel. John Demsey (group president, Estée Lauder Companies Inc.), Caroline de Maigret (music producer and model), Stefano Martinetto (CEO, Tomorrow London Ltd.), François-Henri Pinault (CEO, Kering), Xavier Romatet (CEO, Condé Nast France), Anne-Sophie Von Clear (Le Figaro), and Ellen von Unwerth (photographer, pictured left) will determine who will win the grand prize of 250,000 euros and far-reaching global recognition. The new team joins such returning judges as curator Pamela Golbin, Colette’s Sarah Andelman, and Style.com’s Nicole Phelps.
For those who didn’t get their fill after Marc Jacobs’ decadent, retrospective farewell show in October, the designer today presented a bonus swan song for Louis Vuitton: the Spring ’14 campaign. Lensed by Steven Meisel, the ads pay tribute to Jacobs’ Vuitton muses, including Catherine Deneuve, Sofia Coppola, Caroline de Maigret, Gisele Bündchen, Edie Campbell, and Fan Bingbing. They may have been Jacobs’ inspirations, but we have a feeling these leading ladies will stay in the Vuitton family under Nicolas Ghesquière’s reign.
