Emmanuelle Alt (here photographed by Maciek Kobielski on her vintage Charles Pollack chair) is appointed the new editor of Vogue Paris.
Some interesting commentary by Style Souk:
Vogue Paris is doing very well and I wanted to entrust the editorship to someone who can provide continuity while bringing new life,” Xavier Ramotet, the president of Condé Nast France, commented yesterday.
It is this reference to continuity that reassures.
Alt takes the helm after a decade of service under Roitfeld and symbolises, in every way, the progeny – the literal enfant terrible - of Carine’s cradle.
It is impossible to disassociate Madame Roitfeld from Paris Vogue, but – under Alt’s new direction – we can be certain that her legacy and sensual aesthetic will not be sharp-shouldered entirely aside.
