David Vivirido and Francesco Sourigues like to use the term “power-woman,” along with the descriptor “woman on top.” In fact, that’s how the duo sums up both the subject matter and target audience of their new magazine, Vamp, which launches next week.
“Vamp is for women who want to get ahead, stamp their foot and make a statement,” Vivirido asserts.
Accordingly, the magazine features profiles and portraits of women at the top of their game, as well as strong, yet refreshingly unconceptual fashion spreads shot by emerging photographers, all in a straight-forward aesthetic that harks back to American fashion imagery from the 1970s and 1980s. “It’s about inspiring women with stories about other successful women. It’s not another magazine for fashion people, it’s for real women, power-women, women on top, who like beautiful things — clothes, hair, skin,” Sourigues says.
