CR Fashion Book at the Adrian G. Marcuse Library

Previous editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, Carine Roitfeld has been making major fashion airwaves and we are all receiving them. Since starting her own fashion publication CR Fashion Book, she has managed to change the way people look at fashion editorials no longer the tamed elegance that graces the pages of Vogue, Carine pushes the envelope with sex and fashion, when it all irons out isn't that what fashion is? Sex and clothing. With CR Fashion Book editorial she mixes the uber-famous with everyday people, so the reader gets a realistic view of her vision.

Issue 4: Fairy Tales is available in the magazine room and Issue 5 featuring BeyoncĂ© will be arriving soon! 

Past issues of CR Fashion Book have been recently added to the Bound Magazine Collection.  The three bound issues available are:

Issue 1:  Rebirth [Fall 2012]
Issue 2:  Dance [Spring/Summer 2013]
Issue 3: Hope [Fall 2013]

Coming soon is Little Black Jacket, Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld's reinterpretation of Chanel's iconic little black jacket. Lagerfeld has redesigned the jacket, transforming it into a modern, adaptable garment to be worn by both sexes of all ages. The Little Black Jacket contains Lagerfeld's photographs of celebrities wearing the jacket with individual flair; sometimes classic, sometimes irreverent, but always Chanel.
