The Face – Relaunch?
According to Fashionologie, the closed (since 2004) British cutting edge fashion mag The Face might be getting a bit of a nip and tuck, literally bringing it back from the dead. After 5 years with out any “face time” the veteran glossy might be just the thing to get us out of this fashion schlump. And this might be the best news all week, actually make that all year! The Face was always the magazine that you never threw out – more after the jump…….
Supposedly, executives at Bauer Media have tapped former FHM editor Anthony Noguera to oversee proposals, with aims to have the brand revived next year — but in a new format. The publisher is said to be mulling a number of options, including relaunching The Face as digital-only, a free magazine, or a subscription-only title. Apparently Bauer has ruled out reviving the brand as a monthly newstand title, as it was previously, but declined to comment on the rumors, except to say that it has no plans to relaunch The Face.
Hmmmm…… We are hoping against hope that this baby comes back!
