I think I am officially in print heaven today. Why, the one stop magazine for all things luxurious in accessories, Editorialist, has also unveiled the cover of it’s new biannual print magazine which includes a guide to the season’s key looks, including the top 10 new accessories, and the must have shoes and bags for the season . Culled from Fashionista.com:
Editorialist is an online shop that melds commerce with editorial content through a shoppable, web-only magazine. Nina Agdal, the sports illustrated turned high fashion model is on the cover of the new issue. The magazine will also be printed biannually with focus on driving sales of high-end jewelry, leather goods and shoes. Each issue will align with real-time shopping seasons to optimize the shopability of its content. Also expect features on stylish tastemakers like Kate Foley and Hannah Bronfman.
Here is the best part. How do you get it? Subscriptions are free and issues will also be distributed to Editorialist‘s 25 percent most affluent customers, along with distribution to select fashion media and in partnership with luxury hotels in New York and Paris during collections showings. The same content will also be available online on Editorialist.com and via Editorialist’s mobile-optimized site. While Editorialist and Porter are similar in their mission to drive online shopping, Porter is not free (in fact, at $48 a year it’s a bit pricey). Porter is also published six times a year, available at newsstands and aligns itself as more of a traditional fashion glossy. Editorialist, however, is the only magazine of its kind to focus on accessories, which people buy more than any other category, so that could certainly work in its favor, both with readers and advertisers.
