Carine Roitfeld's new magazine is themed around ''rebirth''.

The former French Vogue editor - who became a grandmother for the first time in May - releases her long-awaited publication CR Fashion Book next week and the first issue discusses the ''dream'' of fashion, as well as ''birth and family''.

In her editor's letter, Carine writes: ''This issue takes rebirth as its theme and is filled with both images and ideas about birth, pregnancy and family. The promise of youth, the force of age, and the rush of all things new. It's an escape, a fashion fairy tale. It's a dream of a better life - because fashion is meant to make us dream.''

Roitfeld explains her magazine is ''a place for these fantasies of fashion''.

One aspect of the magazine that is particularly important to Carine is promoting up-and-coming talent.

She added: ''I've edited the magazine to be a who's who of the next generation, as well as an ode to fashion's legends and icons. Created with humour, joy, grace and always a dash of irreverence.''

The web site launches today (04.09.12) and the magazine goes on sale on September 13.
