Lone Wolf Magazine

In Style Marie Claire
Really a beauty magazine, or, rather, that’s where its strength lies, Marie Claire has successfully branched out into other areas such as fashion, romance and sex.


Sweden has always been at the forefront of the dot-com world, but its online fashion magazines have often been better for men than women. Modette changes that: it’s a great site, with plenty of free articles online on fashion and beauty
A leading Canadian site run by our friends Ilona Kauremszky and Stephen Smith, with first-hand accounts of international travel (12/08)




No, we don’t know why this wasn’t listed earlier. It has well written editorial, obviously ignoring the push by the less intelligent to dumb down, and gives a great slice of fashion life from its New York base




The Rake

By some margin our favourite men’s fashion and lifestyle title. Its features, which, like Lucire’s, have an appreciation of history and context, leave you feeling more knowledgeable—surely this is something that all magazines should achieve? The Rake sees the sartorial archetype as Cary Grant, presumably the later one of North by Northwest and Charade, and revels in its jet-set world, right down to foiled type on its print covers. (See our August 2021 story, ‘Print’s the next big thing’) (added 10/21)


The Roadrat
An extremely classy, and content-rich (244 pp. per issue) magazine dedicated to the car, its beauty, and the people behind the scenes (added 8/23)




The Sartorialist
One of the best street-style blogs and considered by Time to be one of the top 100 style influencers


It’s the world’s most popular teenage magazine. From heartthrobs to fashion alerts, Seventeen helps readers stay at the forefront of their worlds.


Shape Shape
Shape is an essential read for active contemporary women who are interested in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Experts from diverse fields of exercise, nutrition, psychology, and beauty join forces with journalists.






Travel & LeisureTravel & Leisure
One of our favourite travel magazines. Where to go, what to do, with lavish features, in-depth articles and a wealth of useful information for the traveller or the dreamer


Travel Book
The magazine of Relais & Châteaux, with well written luxury travel features (2/23)




In essence, Sweden’s home-grown entry in the Cosmopolitan market: sections on fashion, sex, astrology, food and shopping targeted at the woman who knows what she wants (which may include a calendar with hunky men at the end of the year)



Critical thinking on fashion, with insightful long-form writing (including footnoted essays)—a world away from the clickbait of mass consumer titles (8/21)


Vogue Vogue
Needs no introduction, though online, they once did:, once the online home of Vogue, advertised right here on Lucire to let readers know they were coming. And when they came, there was no looking back, thanks to the power of Vogue's name (re-reviewed 2/21)




Fashion and culture in an oversized format (in print)—the website has a useful archive of older stories. Now owned by an investment group that includes Karlie Kloss, Lewis Hamilton and Kaia Gerber (re-reviewed 8/21)
