I mentioned in last week’s Rock The Week post that I’d started devouring the S/S12 edition of Company High Street Edit, and now I’ve pretty much finished reading it, I thought I’d share its awesomeness with you. Almost every page has a carefully folded top corner, pointing to a piece of clothing I now covet, or a page layout that I love. This happens with none of the other magazine I read regularly.
That’s because Company’s biannual fashion offering is a delight to read and a feast for the eyes. I find that every page has something to offer me, and even if I don’t like a particular trend (I’m looking at you, peplums) I find a caption, a hairstyle, or illustration to enjoy. This collage/scrapbook style design has now been adopted by Company for it’s flagship monthly title – since the redesign three issues ago, the magazine has shifted to a more fashion-heavy publication, with gorgeous matt paper and a new compact size.
I don’t want to give too much away if you’re planning on buying a copy yourself, but this issue features some beautiful clashing florals, street style, a hilarious article on customer service by Katie Mulloy and a rye look at some surprising FROW figures.
My memory card reader is playing up and I can’t find my camera lead (because we STILL haven’t finished unpacking yet) so you’ll have to make do with a few photos taken on my mobile phone, and suped up with my Poladroid app. The fact that I’m using a computer programme and smart phone to give my photos a vintage feel has not been lost on me!
