Carine Roitfeld Says Her New Magazine Won't Compete With Vogue

Carine Roitfeld insists her new magazine, named 'CR', won't be in competition with Vogue Paris because she believes she is creating something different. The former Vogue editor comments that she learned a lot while working for the magazine but is now creating something new:
''Vogue is a very beautiful magazine, an institution, and I learned so much working there. You can't put yourself into competition with a magazine like Vogue; you have to create something new, something different.' 
Carine says the new magazine is "like a new baby" while she initially thought of launching an online publication, before realizing it wasn't "her". She reveals that the printed publication will launch this September in the English language, and will be priced at around €6.00: 
 ''Initially I wanted it on the internet, but it's a lot of investment, a lot of time, I do not know if it suits me. 'I know that now you have to work with the internet and the photos are of very good quality on the iPad, but things quickly go out of style on the internet. We'll start with print: a September issue next fall in English.''
