Elle Collections Spring/Summer 2010

After having seen Susie's blog entry about the Elle Collections magazine, I decided to see whether my local newsagent had it in stock. I've never heard about it before surprisingly. Without much hope, they actually had a pile of copies there, so I grabbed one and must say, it was a very good purchase.



After flicking through the first few pages, you'll notice how different it is from an average magazine. Instead of just showing pictures of the runway collections like those on style.com, there are collage and selections based on a theme. For example a two page spread dedicated to fashion invites or one dedicated to facts about Chanel's fashion show. Also, the typography and design is very beautiful. The cover is a matte-grainy paper and there are different types of paper within the magazine.




There are different articles with questions they asked to various persons, such as editors of magazines or famous fashion bloggers – or a pleasurable article of an editor of The Times about how he experienced his first season at those fashion shows without having had any previous knowledge in fashion.

  4. Wow. I too have never seen this publication, I usually just buy the WWD Collection issues. I've also picked up Harper's and Vogue Italia collection issues...but this looks too good to pass up! I will keep my eyes peeled.

  7. Yeah they definately stepped up thier game this season, I have missed the last few just because it was nothing I couldnt see for free on style.com, but this is a really nice publication to own. Still agree it should be £5 not £6 but whats an extra quid at the end of the day...

  18. I haven't bought a fashion magazine in so long, but ah, that one looks worth the money! I love the pages with all the looks piled atop each other, so many looks to soak in per page, I love that.

    Hope I can find a copy in the U.S... :)

  25. The enthusiasm everyone is showing for a magazine makes me so happy because I keep ending up having arguments with people about the importance of books and newspapers as a reading experience, and not giving in to letting the kindle or online media takeover from paper publication. So hurrah for pretty pictures on pages we can turn with our own fingers - excELLEnt
