At Last

June 12th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Since its inception The Last Magazine has been one of fashion’s essential reads, with continuously impressive content and an oversized format The Last never disappoints. That said, carting around one of fashion’s largest publications can prove difficult – thankfully The Last’s newly launched iPad app offers a portable version of every thing you love about the original. Complete with exclusive new content and gorgeous hi-res visuals the app puts the power and beauty of each issue in a format that fits right into your purse or pocket. Inside you’ll find never before seen features with Karlie Kloss and Caroline Brasch Nielsen .

When asked about the magazine’s new digital direction editors in chief Tenzin Wild & Magnus Berger expressed their excitement for new media’s potential “We’re really proud of the iPad edition. Not only does it look great, but we’re proud that we found a way to share all of this talent with a much larger audience. The Last Magazine has a limited distribution and this will help anybody have access to what’s new in culture, in art, in music, in film, in all the things that make Last special. We’re also really excited about the medium—the iPad—and the creative potential it unlocks.”

Alexander Wang taking the reigns at Balenciaga is a story that will likely dominate the fashion headlines for the next few months. Whether you’re still in mourning after Nicolas Ghesquiere‘ departure, or simply charting the seemingly endless designer shuffle that seems to sum up the current state of flux that permeates the entire industry, this is arguably the most exciting fashion news in a long time. Ever since Cathy Horyn revealed the scoop in her NY Times column the subject has been hotly debated. The one thing everyone can agree on though, is that this begins a new chapter for Balenciaga, one that will determine the brand’s future. We will be waiting with baited breath to see what Wang comes up with for his first Balenciaga collection.

Another exciting new appointment, The Last Magazine‘s Magnus Berger has been named the new creative director of Wall Street Journal’s WSJ magazine. Considering the uniqueness and beauty to be found in every single issue of The Last, we’re expecting big things from WSJ in the coming months.

Karl Lagerfeld never stops, so it is no surprise to find that he’s part of another exciting collaboration. Lagerfeld and Brazilian line Melissa shoes have teamed up for a new global partnership, one where Lagerfeld will design 4 special footwear capsule collections, the first of which will be unveiled in March 2013.

Pre-fall collections are starting to trickle in, with new looks from Belstaff, Helmut Lang and Reed Krakoff.

The line between art and commerce blurs even further with Net-A-Porter set to launch a print magazine, which will surely be as elegant as their online editorials.

To end our news brief on a high and start the week out with some beauty, take a look at Elie Saab‘s latest fashion film, a delightful tour around Paris featuring the brand’s decadent resort collection.
