A sexy little French number, Numero magazine began back in 1998, with Editor-In-Chief Elisabeth Dijan stating, “I was bored with magazines that told me how to seduce a man. I wanted to create this magazine for an intelligent, smart woman who wants to read about art, design, music: not about stupidity – creams that take away wrinkles, you know, which is stupid.”
No stupid. Got it. Instead Numero fills each issue with the most luxurious and avant garde international fashion, beauty, design, health, architecture, culture, arts, music… anything of interest to its army of loyal readers. And don’t worry if you don’t speak le French, you can while away hours just looking at the pretty pictures and killer editorial.
The world’s finest photographers from Solve Sundsbo to Tim Walker regularly contribute to Numero, and the originality and beauty of it’s editorial make sure it succeeds in walking the fine line between cutting edge cool and luxury, making it highly influential in the fashion world.
With editions now coming out of Japan, China, Thailand, and Russia, as well as Numero Homme, those dreamy shoots starring everyone from Kate Moss to Giselle via Chloe Sevigny will be gracing us with their presence for a long time yet.
