The premiere issue of Matchbook Magazine is here – full of fabulous interviews including the one and only Rita Konig, the fabulous Lela Rose (my bridesmaids dresses where designed by her) and the oh so dapper John Derian. I feel incredibly lucky to have had one tiny feature – they asked a group of us What film has had the greatest influence on your personal style? – I feel honored and privileged to be amongst some of the best; Joanna from A Cup of Jo, Grace from design*sponge, Anna Spiro of Absolutely Beautiful Things, Roseline from This Is Glamorous and many more.
If you haven’t been able to dive head first into the first issue be sure to head on over. I’d love to know what your favorite section is!
A BIG thank you to the Matchbook team for bringing us a BURST of inspiration. You ladies did a phenomenal job on this issue!
Do you know how hard it is to keep a secret? A secret you want to tell everyone you know, but can’t? Well, it’s been worth keeping our mouths shut to make today’s BIG announcement super special.
Rue Magazine, is the vision of Crystal Gentilello, who brought on two amazingly talented co-founders Alaina Kaczmarski and Anne Sage. I was lucky enough to be the fourth addition to this fabulous trio, now the fab four. We’ve all been putting our hearts and souls into the launch of Rue, but we love everything we’re doing.
Right now, Crystal and Anne are on the road in New York for a week of photo shoots, and all of us will be traveling across the country this summer to bring the best to you in the fields of interiors, fashion, culture and style. While in New York, they’ll be shooting with a blogger you may read every day along with an A-list designer and a fashion designer whose fabulous bags you may have in your handbag collection. For the launch issue we’re working with photographers who have shot for Domino, Traditional Home and the New York Times.
Let the official countdown begin to our September 16th launch! Be sure to follow us on twitter and facebook for updates on our first issue. We promise you won’t be disappointed, all we ask is for your support.
