It’s been a year of fashion splits: Dundas and Cavalli, Saint Laurent and Hedi, and Messrs. Rag & Bone. Now, Business of Fashion reports that one of fashion media’s best known partnerships is no more. Stephen Gan and Carine Roitfeld have worked together on CR Fashion Book — which was part of Gan’s Fashion Media Group, also home to V and VMAN — for the past four years. But the title has now come under Roitfeld’s full control. Confirming ongoing rumors, the split happened a month ago, according to a statement released to Business of Fashion.
However, this doesn’t appear to be the end of Gan and Roitfeld’s professional partnership, as they both remain on the staff of Harper’s Bazaar — Gan as the magazine’s longtime creative director and Roitfeld as its global fashion director. Hopefully, things aren’t too awkward.
