N O V E L T Y / The Netherlands is Vogue Approved

When I first heard the news that Condé Nast approved The Netherlands for being Vogue worthy I was skeptical.
Is this frugal country that despises luxury and decadence, that always chooses comfort over aesthetics going to have it's own Vogue? Yeah right.

I was wrong because as of March 22 we will have our own Vogue. The first issue was presented to the press today. I was invited to an intimate lunch get-together where the enthusiastic new team of editors told us all about their first issue. It was so special to be among the talented group of bloggers and online journalists to get a first glimpse of Vogue Netherlands!

Karin Swerink(editor in chief) says that times have changed and that even the girls from the village where she grew up, save their pennies for a pair of expensive shoes. Though Karin herself still doesn't dare to tell her mother that the shoes on her feet are worth 500 euros.

What I liked the most about the new Dutch Vogue is that they are so driven to make high quality content. The magazine is packed with editorials and interesting interviews. For example a feature about the closet of one of Raf Simons' employees or an intimate 8 page interview with Inez and Vinoodh. Karin and her team brought a breeze of optimism to the Dutch fashion scene, finally!

Debbie said...

Superfijn om te horen! Ik was namelijk zelf ook wel een beetje sceptisch.. Wat ik me vooral afvraag: is het niet zo dat de NL Vogue voor een groot deel volgezet wordt met content uit buitenlandse Vogues? Dat zou ik namelijk wel erg jammer vinden.. Vooralsnog ben ik erg benieuwd naar de eerste editie :) Wat vond je van de cover? Ik ben er niet echt weg van om eerlijk te zijn. Moge de inhoud beter zijn ;)

Heel tof dat je er bij was en je ziet er supergoed uit!

Thanks Debbie, maar nee, helemaal niets is aangekocht! :)

De minimalistische cover ziet er veelbelovend uit!! Ik hoop echt dat Vogue Nederland een beetje word zoals het (oude) tijdschrift "Dutch"!

Isabelle said...

France & England got an old Vogue, and all my friends that are interested by fashion, and I, we are convinced that we should learn dutch and german! So many things happen around there, it clearly looks like the futur for fashion!
I hope this Vogue is going to be different than the other one, and represent well The Netherlands style :)
