The Gentlewoman is a top-class publication for and about women of note. The magazine is launched by the acclaimed founders and editors of Fantastic Man, Jop van Bennekom and Gert Jonkers.
The Gentlewoman is a women’s magazine that will herald a new decade for female personal style and journalism of the highest quality. The Gentlewoman will challenge the format of female personal style with a more sophisticated and in-depth oriented content. With its intelligence, quick wit and independent eye the magazine offers something entirely new to its readership. Something the women’s market has long been missing. The readers are more ambitious, confident, widely traveled and fiercely proud of their financial independence. They also have a deep love of fashion, which they display through their own personal style.
The Gentlewoman celebrates modern women of style and purpose. Its fabulous biannual magazine offers a fresh and intelligent perspective on fashion that’s focused on personal style – the way women actually look, think and dress. Featuring ambitious journalism and photography of the highest quality, it showcases inspirational women through its distinctive combination of glamour, personality and warmth.
Penny Martin is editor-in-chief of The Gentlewoman. Her magazine is a flagbearer for contemporary independent publishing and offers an alternative to mainstream women’s magazines. Cover stars are cultural icons – including Adele, Angela Lansbury, Beyonce and now Sofia Coppola, all shot in black and white – symbolising that difference. Before launching the magazine in 2010 Penny was chair of fashion imagery at the London College of Fashion and before that editor-in-chief of SHOWstudio.
