January Magazine Content Analysis

 Images per magazine featuring head to toe stripes:

Vogue: 2

Elle: 3

Harper’s Bazaar: 0

Marc Jacobs was all over the magazines this month!

Near the front of Vogue was a Marc Jacobs ad featuring his show-opener, Ruby Jean Wilson, in one of his striped maxidresses. The main spread depicted models Carolyn Murphy and Karen Elson in his colorful striped jacket/skirt sets.






Elle had head-to-toe stripes in three images: a Michael Kors top and skirt and a waxy Marc Jacobs in a retrospective of the S/S 2013 collections, and a girlish blue and white Gucci dress in a spread highlighting actress Bella Heathcote.






Strangely, Harper’s Bazaar didn’t feature the trend at all! Except for a pair of pants in a spread, stripes were absent from the magazine. It remains to be seen if they will catch up in the next few months.
