Hear Ye Gentlewomen

IMG_2184

>> I think I've said before that a magazine that I regularly read is Fantastic Man, given that the boyf buys every issue and ergo, I get to snarf through it without spending a penny.  There's something about the dialogue about style as opposed to fashion that is very refreshing to an all-over-the-place scatterbrain like me as it literally makes me sit down and think for five minutes about say an item like a bow tie.  Actually the fact that 1,000 words can be pumped out on a subject like the bow tie AND be engaging is in itself an impressive feat. 

Therefore, I was pretty excited when I heard rumours floating about early summer that a sister magazine would be on its way.  Nope, it ain't Fantastic Woman but it's going to be called Gentlewoman and the first issue will be launched in spring/summer 2010.  The taster in the current A/W 09 issue of Fantastic Man has already had me anticipating sessions of sitting still, good and proper in an Eames chair with an issue and a cup of Earl Grey tea at the site (no biscuit as I don't want to get grease stains on the matt paper…).

A spread about the perfect jumper… and pointy bras seen at Louise Goldin S/S 10 are already in force…

A piece about the benefits of napping for more brain power… not sure this is something I can adopt given my penchant for 3-hour sleeping time…

My favourite spread is this piece about Karla Otto, superpower of fashion PR… she looks completely amazing…

I may not be a gentlewoman but at the very least, I'd like to read about being one…
