From Conde to Hearst she goes. Carine Roitfeld–former Vogue Paris’ EIC, and current editrix of her own new mag CR Fashion Book (published by Visionaire)–has been named Global Fashion Director of Harper’s Bazaar.
So what does that mean?
In news that makes us really, really happy: Carine Roitfeld is slated to launch her own magazine.
While Roitfeld stays mum on many of the details, the former Vogue Paris editrix said in an interview for Dazed & Confused that she hopes to start a “really iconic magazine that’s fresh and exciting.” The magazine will “be something less frequent than a month” and will be printed in English. “There is no value in it being in French,” she said, “It needs to be international.”
According to ELLE, Roitfeld isn’t the only big-name fashion industry player involved: Marie-Amelie Sauve, Mario Testino and Stephen Gan–aka “the dream team”–will also play a role in the as-yet-unnamed publication. No doubt, with so many talented people involved, the magazine is sure to be a huge success.

While my computer’s hard drive is now 25% covered in images of Hannelore Knuts, I’ve managed to pull out 20 photos that are particularly noteworthy.
But don’t rely on me entirely. After checking out my edit, go to Self Service’s new site and find out for yourself.
