An event last night at the Forbes Galleries (the last hurrah at this venue before staffers at Forbes Media move across the river) celebrated the launch of ForbesLife.com, the digital component of luxury lifestyle magazine ForbesLife. The new vertical, which we reported on in July, has a minimalist design with bold, beautiful — and clickable — photo imagery throughout.
According to the official announcement:
ForbesLife.com covers the world of luxury and is expected to leverage content from Forbes staff writers and more than 150 expert contributors based around the globe — including journalists who have written for The New York Times, Vogue, Esquire, The New Yorker and more. Content on the site is divided by channel topic, such as: Travel, Cars & Bikes, Style, Planes & Boats, Homes, Watches & Jewelry, Tech, Food & Drink, Arts, and Video.
Another focus appears to have been making sure the site was optimized for mobile. A ForbesLife app is planned for release later this month. Check out event pics after the jump.
