Between 1946 and 1977, Holiday was one of the most exciting magazines in the United States. In 2014, after a 37-year break, Holiday resurfaced thanks to Parisian artistic director Franck Durand. This new Holiday has remained faithful to its essence, as much aesthetically as in the sense of the adventures led by journalists at its origin, but in a format that also celebrates fashion.
