Our main brand, L’Officiel de la Couture et de la Mode de Paris, was launched in 1921. Its goal: to introduce our readers to the universe of fashion.
In the Thirties, L’Officiel introduced the world to haute couture. In the Seventies, it showcased designers such as Claude Montana, Christian Lacroix and Jean Paul Gaultier. In the early years of the new Millennium, we accompanied our readers into the 21st Century. Today’s fashion is a combination of tradition and innovation. L’Officiel understands this and strives to present this vision through a range of publications that are a reflection of our times.
To keep up with the ever-changing reality of fashion and luxury, we constantly renew our vision and projects, always prepared to question established wisdom and to take risks.
Over the years, we launched new magazines to meet the expectations of different generations.
Jalouse targets trendy young women between 24 and 40 years old. L’Optimum presents all the latest news in men’s universe. La Revue des Montres gives an insight into the many facets of watch design.
L’Officiel Hommes positions itself as a reference publication in men’s fashion; L’Officiel 1000 Models is a guide to all the fashion collections; L’Officiel Chirurgie et Médecine Esthétique is a yearly roundup of all the news in cosmetic surgery, while L’Officiel Voyage is a must for everyone passionate for “travel chic”. Finally our latest releases are L’Officiel Art, a magazine that presents the art world as seen through the eyes of the artists, and L’Officiel Shopping, a unique guide to Paris published in 3 languages (French, English and Mandarin).
International development is our new challenge.
L’Officiel was the first French magazine to be published in China in the Eighties. Today it spans across 42 editions in 24 countries. With many countries going through economic growth, our wish is to expand through alliances with new partners to support our international development. As economies grow, so does the population of consumers with a desire for fashion and luxury.
L’Officiel has become a trusted reference within the global fashion industry thanks to my father Georges Jalou, with his high standards and his perfectionism. His values have remained more than ever our trademark.
