French Vogue is getting a makeover with the September issue, which hits newsstands August 23.The magazine features a cleaner, airier design, with remodeled typography and the use of a craft-paper-like brown background — both of which hark back to its look in the Sixties and Seventies.
The new layout is the brainchild of 34-year-old Germain Chauveau, who earlier this year succeeded Johan Svensson as artistic director of the magazine. Only minor changes had been made since the previous layout, executed by Fabien Baron for the magazine’s December 2003-January 2004 double issue. Prior to that, the magazine was art directed by design duo M/M (Paris).
The September issue comes with three covers, featuring sheer clad models Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy and Lara Stone.
