Wintour is coming! All right everyone, gird your loins. It’s that time of year. The January of fashion has arrived – September, and with September comes the September issue. The fashion magazine elite battle it out to be crowned the style bible of fall and beyond, and this year it’s war!
Will Vogue’s 800-page magazine be the (literal) heavyweight champion? Or will Elle be this season’s new belle? Parisian Wholesale is rounding up the September 2016 covers and how they will shape the Autumn/Winter ’16 season ahead.
Elle Magazine September Issue 2016
Cover star It Brit Cara Delevingne recently exchanged the Haute Couture catwalks of Paris for the red carpets of Hollywood, as the original Instagirl (sort of) retired modelling to star in the blockbuster film Suicide Squad. The critics may have been harsh on Cara’s acting ability, but nobody can criticize her fashion presence. Elle’s 530 pages of new looks boast one power trend on the cover, and that’s the 80’s revival – sequin. What does this mean for retailers? Monopolise on the Christmas party season with Parisian’s edits of directional and essential sequin dresses, from must-have minis to micro-trend patterned sequin. No matter how high or low your range is, sequin is a must.
Vogue Magazine September Issue 2016
The face that launched a billion likes. The KUWTK reality star turned supermodel of the world, Kendall Jenner’s life is that of a dream. The face of Estee Lauder, Chanel and Topshop is now the face of Vogue’s prestigious September cover. Kendall is not the only Kardashian-Jenner to grace the cover of Vogue, as Kim Kardashian-West controversially covered the magazine with husband Kanye, and King Kylie reigns over the nepotistic privilege editorial inside the September edition. Kendall’s trouser suit connotes the trend themes of AW16, brocade, gold, embellishment and bows. This winter is all about statement-making pieces, so refresh your fall ranges with extravagant pieces that will make your customers feel as dream-rich as Kendall without the A-list price tag.

Glamour September Issue 2016
Another nepotistically gifted reality star turned model Bella Hadid adorns the cover of Glamour’s September issue. It’s her time to shine and step out of the shadows of Gigi wearing a juxtaposition of casual practical outwear with froufrou embellished eveningwear, which compliments Bella’s very own athleisure-meets-glamour style. Parisian predicts Bella will be the new celebrity style inspiration source for many fashion-conscious customers, so we have picked out AW16 key pieces Bella Hadid will definitely be adding to her basket.
