I have bought every single issue of British Vogue since the start of 2008. I would not actually recommend it to most people, but I buy it out of academic curiosity and for documentary purposes - it is still the hallmark of British Fashion with a capital 'F'. For an interesting discourse on fashion, look elsewhere. For the cutting edge, look elsewhere. For street fashion, look elsewhere. For minute-by-minute updates of fashion news, look elsewhere. That being said, as a documentary of mainstream (conservative) fashion, with a good array of advertising imagery and coverage of major trends, it is irreplaceable. Social history in the making.
But every so often there are editorials that make things interesting. More please.
