LOVE Magazine

This weekend was the Superbowl, couch building (nothing says you're in your 20s like building furniture from IKEA with your friends), bike rides, movies and hot torta subs.

In a nutshell, nothing too blog-appropriate. However, I do have a spot to keep your eye on in the next few weeks. On February 19, Conde Nast will launch a new luxury magazine focused on fashion and art, titled Love. The editor is Katie Grand, fashion-stylist extraordinaire and former editor of Pop magazine, and contributor to Interview, The Face, and Dazed and Confused. Grand and co. have quietly been posting on a blogger site about happenings in the office. Highlights so far this year included some lo-res pictures of a bald man, and a short narrative about one of their staffers leaving to get a boob job. I'm hoping the magazine will be more impressive. After all, it's been very a slow year for luxury items, publishing and Conde Nast in particular -- this is a bold move and there is a lot to lose. These magazines have a short shelf life and even the best have tanked in the past few years... this could be a spectacular crash and burn.
