If you know me that you know im not a book reading kinda girl i get bored easily but throw me a European fashion magazine with a quirky name and im all over it …they become precious books to me and id rather spend hours scanning the images in or photocopying them then cut them up for my sketchbook ! Sometimes if im feeling nice i let my friends look at them for inspiration too but since ive moved home for the summer my precious collection has been put in the garage … : (
So when i was Paris i couldn’t help but walk into a little magazine shop and a magazine called i love you made my eyes light up ,
It is filled with fashion photography, quotes and some amazing still life photography and with the name fitting in with my romantic trip to Paris i was sold …i have issue no 4 but ive researched the magazine and i love what ive found…
The full cover superwomen issue
I though the lipstick kisses where tights but its body art !!!!
Alot of the images are spread over a double page … i love it !
I love you is the printed blog of Christiane Bördner’s based in berlin the magazine is inspired by her blog and is solely for women … It´s a womens point of view on women.
Ive read over the website and love the interviews with Christiane Bördner and love some of the comments made….
“No, honestly, there is nothing more beautiful for me than photography on paper, in a book, on the wall. My heart beats for magazines, photography, and I love paper…” ( new york times interview.)
“Deep in my heart I am a feminist but I don’t see a reason why I need to express this in flat shoes and compete with men, when there are the greatest highest heels out there and we all look so hot in them…” (themostcake.co.uk)
And she’s a fan of Mad Men even more reason to love her and this amazing blog !!
“The first time I saw Mad Men the TV Show I was so inspired by Joan as a woman; she is so much woman. I love her character, her body, the way she is dressed… we will do a whole issue about her as homage, coming out in November. She once said to her colleague Peggy: “If you want to be taken seriously, stop dressing like a little girl” – this could be a subtitle of the magazine. ” ( Themostcake.co.uk)
Im buying that issue ! …. the only thing i hate is that i didnt know about this magazine sooner and the no.1 and 3 are sold out !!!!
