Komende week verschijnt het eerste nummer van The Gentlewoman, van de makers van Fantastic Man en Butt, in de winkel én in de etalage van Athenaeum Nieuwscentrum, en hier al enkele spreads. [Update 22 september 2010: het bestelbaar afgebeelde nummer is het tweede nummer.]

Het zusterblad van Fantastic Man heeft als cover girl Phoebe Philo, de creative director van Celine. The Gentlewoman wijdt ook een profiel en een fotosessie aan haar, in kleren van eigen ontwerp, geschoten door David Sims, gestyled door Camilla Nickerson. Penny Martin, de hoofdredacteur van het blad, dat tweemaal per jaar zal verschijnen: 'It's about modernity and women that are just fantastic. Phoebe was very candid about herself, her mother and silhouette and inspirations.'

Verder: kunstenares Jenny Holzer, DJ Princess Julia, zwemster Lynne Cox, wijnmaakster Sara Perez en architecte Kazuyo Sejima, en bijdragen van Alice Rawsthorn, Louise Gray en Daisy Lowe.

The Gentlewoman, spread: Phoebe Philo designs the clothes women actually want to wear
Phoebe Philo designs the clothes women actually want to wear. Just when fashion needed new direction, Phoebe Philo has returned from self-imposed exile to present a vision of how to dress today. After a single season as the creative director of Céline, Phoebe has cut through fashion’s tired fantasy, turning the dust-gathering Parisian house into a platform for sharp reality and hyper-luxurious clothing. In person, Phoebe is an intriguing mix of British reserve and disarming frankness; she has long been an inspiration to the legions of women, young and old, who want to be just like her. Phoebe is always her own best model, designing clothes that suit wherever she happens to be in life.
Having learnt the lessons from her past position at Chloé, she is now ensuring that the Céline design studio is based in her hometown of London rather than at the company’s headquarters in Paris. That means Phoebe can live a full life with her two children and husband, Max – a contemporary family setup that greatly informs her work.

Sara Pérez. The revolutionary force behind modern Spanish wine. With brave new ideas about wine at a time of great gastronomic experimentation in her country, Sara Pérez is the chief winemaker at the ambitious Mas Martinet and Venus vineyards in northeast Spain. Thirty years ago, when her family moved there, harsh and mountainous Priorat had all but fallen off the map as a wine-producing region. Now, Sara is breathing new life into their pioneering work, bringing very radical changes...
