Industrie Icons

July 16th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Industrie Magazine is known for its in depth look at fashion’s most interesting personalities and the magazine’s latest issue lives up to that legacy with a compelling look at Vogue’s Tonne Goodman. As one of the most prolific stylists around, Goodman has helped to craft Vogue’s identity for several decades and more than 100 covers. Goodman rarely grants interviews so the recounting of her career, from her beginnings as a model to her tenure as fashion director is a wonderful treat for readers. Fashion historians will find themselves enthralled by the interview, while lovers of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin’s photography are sure to find themselves drawn in by their photos of Goodman in her signature black turtleneck and sleek blonde hair.

Editorially the issue is filled with fresh content from the very best contributors, Lara Stone features in stark shots by Erik Torstensson, accompanied by a lengthy interview that details her ascent to supermodel status. Joan Smalls pumps iron in an adrenaline filled story by Lachlan Bailey (Management + Artists), Freja Beha Erichsen models Alexander Wang’s latest and Jamie Bochert guides readers through a day in her life comic book style.
