Lula magazine Issue #18
Lula magazine is back with a new issue! Though Leith Clark is busy launching her new print project, Violet, new editor in-chief Sheila Single and creative director Maja Kolqvist have been busy preparing for a new issue of Lula, the first without any direction from Leith. Three covers revamp the magazine with the help of model and illustrator Langley Fox, the twin sister musical act Say Lou Lou, and the Swedish singer Lykke Li. As fashion editor at Numero and contributor of Purple, Vogue Italia, Harper’s Bazaar, and Vanity Fair, Single hopes to preserve Lula’s spirit.
In an interview with the Telegraph, Single said, “We wanted Lula to be bold but continue to have a personal take on creativity. The first move was the appointment of Maja Kolqvist, who re-drew the Lula logo and found a font that would make the magazine perfect for reading. Then I brought in a young, diverse team to shake up Lula’s soft and romantic identity. With a new team naturally came new collaborations with photographers, writers, stylists and artists, who interpreted our vision and our theme of sisterhood in a way we could never have imagined.”
As the new issue hits stands on April 22nd, Lula will be one to watch as it is re-magined by Single’s watchful eye. Legions of devoted Lula lovers are expecting the new team to maintain the magazine’s reputation as it undergoes changes. And surely, with 17 beautiful issues under her belt, Clark is expecting the same.
