Could it be??

Leith-Clark

Right now, I'm hoping against all hope that the photo behind Leith Clark with all the dark blue hues is, in fact, the cover of the newest issue of Lula. (And, is it just me...or does the girl in the white dress bear a slight resemblance to Ms. Lou Doillon?? Squint harder, dang it!)

The release date for their Fall issue has now been pushed back well over a month, for reasons still unknown. I love Lula, I do, but I have to admit: it really ticks me off that they've not given us hint one as to what the heck is going on. I mean, we care dammit! And we shell out nigh on $20 to buy a copy, so I feel like the least they can do is lend a few words of reassurance in these troubled times. Grrrrr.

Anyways, in the meantime, to wile away the Lula-less hours, check out this interview with Leith on The Style Notebook (also where I found the above photo.) Here's wishing the Lula pop-up shop makes a stop in NYC--and be sure to read Anabela's first-hand account of the experience while you're at it!

I can't hate lula for taking their sweet time, I get that they're super independent/mostly run by volunteers and pretty much anything can happen. Besides, they're usually worth the wait.

Anyway, I live in Toronto and I went to this today! I couldn't recognize the cover girl, but the dress is very much one of the white dresses that ended Rodarte F/W 10.

Totally agree it'll be worth the wait! And any number of things could be holding it up, for sure. Just bugs me that they have neglected to even hint at what the wait is about. I mean...they do have a twitter for pete's sake!!

I wish I could find Lula here, but alas the search continues!
I hope that is the new cover too! It looks beautiful! Lula fall is always my favourite issue!!

Did they really push the date back a month? Damn, I'm going to London real soon and I was hoping to buy a copy there...but I guess it'll be worth it like usual!

Roxanne said...

Ah. We don't get Lula here in South Africa :( You have a lovely blog! x

Aw dude, I don't think it's Lou Doillon. I don't know my models AT ALL but I don't think it's her.

Still bummed I couldn't take pictures, still bummed I don't have $2000+ for that Sonia Rykiel dress.

Ah I've been checking my local Borders/Barnes & Noble on end, hoping it will pop up!

Alicia said...

I thought I was the only one still waiting for a new Lula!! Almost thought they weren't going to publish anymore :(
Thanks for the news though, let's hope for the best!

Love Simone said...

I'm equally as irritated, however after reading the interview you linked, I'm feeling a bit more patient knowing the incredibly personal process that goes into creating it! If that is the cover, it's fantastic...as always :)

Jenny Lewis has been interviewed for it so I hoped it would be her!!

i read somewhere it comes out this week (the 30th)... is it true?!

Ringo, have a banana! said...

I've read that too! I want to believe it...but seeing as it's been pushed back so many times already, I'm not holding my breath... :n (

Stephanie said...

I'm just glad there's a new issue comming out. Honestly I subscribe to a few magazines, but Lula is the one I always look forward to.

Alexandra said...

I feel like I've been waiting all year for this!
I'd love to see Lou Doillon on the cover.

Arggghh according to this it's Charlotte Gainsbourg on the cover?! I should have gotten a better look: http://www.dazeddigital.com/fashion/article/8809/1/leith-clarks-lula

And okay, not to be more crazy, but check this out. Could be a Birkin kid! I wish I had some of that fancy software they have on cop shows. http://www.flickr.com/photos/ashleybartlett/5085201528/sizes/l

"Clark says the new issue, with Charlotte Gainsbourg on the cover, is the most financially successful yet"

What in the what does this even mean?? IT HASN'T BEEN RELEASED YET. Aarrgh this is really driving me nuts haha!!

Ringo, have a banana! said...

Yeah, it's totally Charlotte! Ok, so I was close...

Catherine said...

I just read this on TFS as well and I am also pumped/frustrated!! I love Lula too so of course I'll wait to buy it, but goodness - how long must we wait?! I am super hyped for the new issue though.

Zoë said...

Charlotte is on the cover? Goodness I'm getting excited!! I pre-ordered my copy this morning and found a website that was selling it for £3 cheaper than my previous supplier!

I'll be waiting by the post box! xo
