The style magazine that defined the 80 s has been relaunched online with a magazine version to come in September
After a hiatus of 15 years, the Face, the mode store known for its impressing floods that helped launch the careers of Kate Moss, Alexander McQueen, Juergen Teller and Phoebe Philo, is back. Theface.com is online now, and will be followed by a quarterly store in September, with the aim of recapturing its status as wording bible of a generation.
” It feels like a excellent day for the Face to be coming back ,” says the writer, Stuart Brumfitt.” In these uncertain times, we want to create a merriment, smart, unifying arrange for style-, culture- and society-loving beings to revel in .”
Dan Flower, the magazine’s managing director, concurs about the timing.” When the Face came out the first time[ in 1980 ], there was a lot of political turbulence ,” he says. He believes it will appeal to a freshly politically aware generation, adding that there are likeness to be drawn between the 80 s and present daytime.
At its flower, the Face magazine sold 70,000 duplicates a few months. Its coverings- boasting the likes of Moss, Bart Simpson, Madonna, McQueen dressed as Joan of Arc, David Beckham or a 13 -year-old boy dressed as a thug- ensured it stood out on the newsstand, and it became a monthly pop-culture talking target during its 24 -year run up to 2004.
Brumfitt says:” The spreads were so potent. There’s one cover for everyone out there. It gave you a snapshot of form at that moment in time but more through person and culture and lifestyle .” He is hoping to retaking that sense with the relaunch, which will seek to emulate the arresting treats, jocular writing and a mix of the information contained that stroked on the -Alist as well as pop culture, play, current things and youth subculture.
