V Magazine was launched in September 1999 as the "younger sibling" publication to the limited-edition quarterly Visionaire. While Visionaire features couture, V features ready-to-wear clothing. V magazine is a large-format and visually-driven, international in scope and collaborative in spirit.
It is edited by Stephen Gan with articles that focus on art, film, music, and fashion. V is noted for its extreme and artful fashion spreads by the world's greatest photographers, as well as its reportage of cultural figures and global youth culture.
