This template draws inspiration from the aesthetic of fashion editorial magazines and lookbooks. Its use of abundant white space and fine typographic detail recalls the work of Harper's Bazaar's most notable art director: Alexey Brodovitch. Striving for the same elegance and dynamism, this template offers a simple outlet to feature impeccable content.
Brodovitch's signature use of white space, his innovation of Bazaar's iconic Didot logo, and the cinematic quality that his obsessive cropping brought to layouts (not even the work of Man Ray and Henri Cartier-Bresson was safe from his busy scissors) compelled Truman Capote to write, "What Dom Pérignon was to champagne ... so [Brodovitch] has been to ... photographic design and editorial layout." Sadly, Brodovitch's personal life was less triumphant. Plagued by alcoholism, he left Bazaar in 1958 and eventually moved to the south of France, where he died in 1971. However, his genius lives on.
