A few blog posts ago, I talked about HBO’s newest documentary called In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye. Last night, I finally had the chance to watch it. I of course loved it, though I will warn you that if you are looking for juicy stories, an in-depth look at the functioning of the famed fashion magazine, or a sneak peak into Anna’s life you will surely be disappointed. It is more of a chat with some of the magazines most beloved editor’s and a look at their amazing work.
Anyway, seeing as I had to borrow my parents-in-law’s HBO Go login info, I felt as though watching it was a gift. Which in turn gave me an idea for some fabulous Vogue inspired, fashion-y holiday gift ideas (you like how I did that?).
Fashion Magazine Gift Subscriptions
When, I got a letter from one of my favorite magazines that said I could renew my current subscription while also giving one to a friend I was beyond excited. All I had to do was write down a name, an address, and they would do the rest (you can also do this online). It really doesn’t get any simpler than that… They will even send them a little note from you wishing them a Happy Holiday! A wonderful surprise for any fashion loving friend or family member; just be sure they don’t already have one before signing up.
Fashion books are becoming more and more popular with everyone from street style photographer Scott Schuman with his book The Sartorialist Closer to Grace Coddington and her new memoir jumping on board (and of course Vogue: The Editor’s Eye) . Whether a style guide or simply a book filled with beautiful images your fashionable loved one will be thankful.
I have watched every fashion related documentary I could possibly get my hands on, and have been smitten with each and every one of them, but here are a few favorites: The September Issue, Bill Cunningham New York, The Tents, Valentino: The Last Emperor. Most of these are also available on Netflix, which might be another great gift idea.
Though this is a fairly pricey gift, it is the perfect gift for the ultimate Vogue lover. The $1,547 12-month Vogue Archive subscription gives access to every issue the magazine has ever published starting from 1892! I can only imagine how wonderful it would be to have access to such historic moments in fashion.
