What a beautiful runway fashion magazine this Elle Collections is. Just a couple of issues per year and the Elle juggernaut rolls up with this neat and tidy round up of the major fashion collections of the moment. Launched in 2006, it's a well built magazine with probably thousands of images within. The magazine is produced with obvious care and quality and there is plenty of designer discussion and know how. It really is the one fashion magazine you should not go without if you need to be kept up to speed - it's also a great collectable.
The Elle magazine group outguns its rival Vogue by 25 foreign editions to 19. We aren't sure how relevant that is but you could argue that when it comes to the Elle Collections magazine, they will have even more worldwide fashion trends & show secrets to draw upon. What's also incredibly refreshing is that there are possibly fewer pages devoted to adverts in this magazine than there are in my local church pamphlet...big round of applause for that.
We can tell you that this weighs 607 grams vs Vogue Collection's 1072 and that it's a snip at the £6 cover price (Vogue Collections is a monster £24.95). Steady on though, this isn't magazine top trumps and none of it really tells you that this is a highly sort after fashion collection magazine.
Elle Collections has small yet detailed photographs of pretty much anything that dares to walk down a catwalk with two editions per year. It's as if Elle has give Collections magazine a whopping budget and a "don't bother trying to make it pay" designers dream ticket. As a result you have different papers and styles through out the magazine making it a step above the usual stuff - plus it's probably one of the best value magazines we can think of! Errm, you should buy them, maybe even two of each.
