Hear Ye Gentlewomen

>> 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…

IMG_2188

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…

    Love the retro typeface of gentlewoman. Not loving the name, however. But Fantastic Man is great. So I’ll definitely check it out!
