The gentle touch: New publication celebrates fantastic women

15.03.2010 Magazine : DJ Princess Julia : Lynne Cox

London – A new magazine celebrates functional fashion and the success of strong, ambitious women.

The team behind Fantastic Man, the ‘gentleman’s style journal’, is launching a spin-off title for women. The Gentlewoman is edited by Penny Martin, former editor-in-chief of SHOWstudio, professor of fashion imagery at London College of Fashion and curator of art and photography. The magazine, she says, illustrates ‘women that are just fantastic’.

The magazine’s minimalist layout demonstrates its practical approach to photography and fashion, while the writing aims to be both sartorially well-informed and intelligent.

The first issue presents Phoebe Philo, the British designer and creative director at French luxury fashion house Céline, in black and white on a peach-bordered cover. The issue will also contain interviews with artist Jenny Holzer, winemaker Sara Pérez, open-water swimmer Lynne Cox and DJ Princess Julia, as well as contributions from fashion designer Louise Gray and model Daisy Lowe.
