INDIE NEWSROOM: Carine Starting Her Own Magazine!…SJP Hags It Up for S Moda…Scott Schuman is Kind of a Dick


Carine Roitfeld, by the Grace of Coddington, is coming back to the magazine world: ”I would love to do four times a year. Initially, I wanted it on the Internet, but it’s a lot of investment, a lot of time, I do not know if it suits me. I know that now you have to work with the Internet, and the photos are of very good quality on the iPad, but things quickly go out of style on the Internet. We’ll start with print. A September issue next Fall, in English.” [Fashionologie]

Sarah Jessica Parker covers S Moda and the results are…not great. Looks like someone eschewed being Photoshopped — good for you — but that same someone should have ensured they were being lit properly. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

- Reebok has to pay out $25 million to the lazy lard-asses who believed a shoe would tone their lazy lard asses. [WWD, sub req'd]

- Vogue Russia provides a sneak peek at Versace for H&M and it. Is. STUNNSIES. [Refinery 29]

-  Lauren Santo Domingo, referring to Proenza Schouler‘s new fashion film directed by Harmony Korine:  ”I don’t know if anyone can make a crystal meth trailer park seem chic.” I think my good friend, Natasha Lyonne, would beg to differ. [The Cut]

- Scott Schuman, while bragging about how much he makes [$250K] and how big his…audience is, manages to throw in a few jibes against 8-year-old blogging sensation Tavi Gevinson, claiming her success is a “conspiracy” [agreed] and essentially making fun of her for not having a boyfriend. I would say pick on someone your own size but if you’ve ever seen The Sartorialist, you’d realize that Tavi probably has a good inch or two on him. [Fashionista, The Cut]

I was center square from 1969 to 1978, during which I perfected the art of the zing as well as a crippling cocaine addiction. Bea Arthur was responsible for both. @LesFabian lester dot brathwaite at gmail
