Vogue Italië brengt April editie uit met blanco cover

Category: ★ Fashion News

De Italiaanse Vogue wordt deze maand uitgebracht met een witte cover. Voor het eerst in de lange geschiedenis van het blad is dit het geval. De reden daarvoor is uiteraard de schrijnende situatie in Italië door de coronacrises. Het blad voor de maand april inclusief haar cover lag al klaar en had twee weken geleden al gedrukt moeten worden. Echter kozen de redacteuren ervoor om het blad niet uit te brengen en compleet opnieuw te beginnen. Dit om de mensen die voor hun leven vechten en de artsen die keihard werken te steunen in een bizarre tijd. Uit respect voor hen is er ook gekozen voor een witte cover. Wit staat namelijk voor respect, maar ook licht na een donkere periode en bovendien is wit de kleur van de uniformen die hardwerkende artsen dragen. Daarnaast staat wit voor een nieuw begin, een begin die hopelijk snel kan worden gemaakt. Een mooie boodschap van Vogue die we graag even met je wilden delen. Lees het volledige statement hieronder.

White is first of all respect. White is rebirth, the light after darkness, the sum of all colours. White is the colour of the uniforms worn by those who put their own lives on the line to save ours. It represents space and time to think, as well as to stay silent. White is for those who are filling this empty time and space with ideas, thoughts, stories, lines of verse, music and care for others. White recalls when, after the crisis of 1929, this immaculate colour was adopted for clothes as an expression of purity in the present, and of hope in the future. Above all: white is not surrender, but a blank sheet waiting to be written, the title page of a new story that is about to begin.”

The Vogue Italia April Issue will be out next Friday 10th. 🤍🤍🤍 “In its long history stretching back over a hundred years, Vogue has come through wars, crises, acts of terrorism. Its noblest tradition is never to look the other way. Just under two weeks ago, we were about to print an issue that we had been planning for some time, and which also involved L’Uomo Vogue in a twin project. But to speak of anything else – while people are dying, doctors and nurses are risking their lives and the world is changing forever – is not the DNA of Vogue Italia. Accordingly, we shelved our project and started from scratch. The decision to print a completely white cover for the first time in our history is not because there was any lack of images – quite the opposite. We chose it because white signifies many things at the same time. 🤍🤍🤍 White is first of all respect. White is rebirth, the light after darkness, the sum of all colours.
