THE MOD SQUAD
Did you see it? The big “Modern Luxury” title above Boston Common magazine on the cover? We have a new parent company, and boy, Mom and Dad are cool cats. The Modern Luxury publishing group snapped up our former company, GreenGale Publishing. We are now a part of a dazzling family of titles, 84 magazines in 24 markets—from Hawaii to Dallas to us. The magazine in your hands right now is our inaugural Issue. I hope you can feel on every page the high energy that is exploding in our office right now. After all, we have a shiny new look—original photography, sassy sections like Society & Culture, Design & Realty and Travel & Rec—all filled with news that is now, now, now (we even have a section called “Now”). And, because you, our readers, are a jet-set crew, we’ll also be sharing select cutting edge content from our new publishing clan that we think you will find invaluable. But back to this Issue, in which we celebrate five of Boston’s most stylish women, each of whom boasts more than a little substance as well. “Style” never really means an impressive wardrobe; it means a swagger and a risk-taking confidence that can only come from an authentic sense of self. The mentality of “Who cares what other people think” connects our ladies who range from TV reporters to philanthropists to novelists. I hope you enjoy every page. Send us ideas and suggestions for what you would like to see in upcoming months—we want to know! If you are in the Prudential Center area between 6 to 9pm on September 28, I will be emceeing an event about style, and would like to meet you. In the meantime, embrace fall. Embrace Boston. Hike in the Blue Hills (only 20 minutes from Downtown), indulge in fresh seafood, catch a lecture at Harvard. In other words, indulge in your inner style.
