Now for my personal favorite, Vanité! Vanité is the font VF France is using instead of Solano Gothic (What VF U.S is using). This font was the result of a design collaboration between the art department at Vanity Fair France and Jean-baptiste levee. This typeface is perfect for the french edition, it’s art deco and modern at the same time. This is what’s replaced VF Sans and it’s doing a great job. It has a lot of wonderful glyphs. Unfortunately, there again, it’s not available for purchase but we’re keeping our fingers crossed right? You can find more information on Vanite here.
The third one is a classic, Futura. Ah futura, I have come to appreciate that typeface a lot in the last few years. It’s just so easy to use and in this case it blends so well with the whole design of the magazine. VF U.S and France use the same version of it, Futura (T1). This typeface however has so many different variations that it’s really hard to know which is which! I was never able to find where to get Futura (T1) but here is a link to the regular version on MyFonts. It goes for $356 and has 18 different weights. I’d say it’s definitely a good one to have in your pocket.
For the last one I’m afraid we’re just going classic with the VF times which is used for all the main text throughout the mag. Nothing fancy here, just a sweeter version of Times making an easy read. All and all, good typefaces in the mix! You can check out the fonts Vanity Fair U.S uses here.
