Illustrated Vogue Italia

No photoshoots in January Vogue Italia, just gorgeous illustrated stories by a number of artists including Vanessa Beecroft. The money saved will be donated to environmental causes. Here are some of my favorite images:

  • Such a wonderful idea. Picking this up today.

  • I love this and will try to get the magazine…inspiration!

  • Could you add the artist credits for these?

  • This is wonderful! My sister graduated from Parsons with a BFA in fashion illustration in the late 80s, just in time for creative directors to switch to photography in ads. She’s still an illustrator, but working for associations and nonprofits in DC. She will eat this up.
    Thanks, Preston, I’ve found a birthday surprise for her.

  • This is interesting! I’ve long wished for a return to classic fashion illustration. Imagine the savings in advertising without paying for models, photographers, make up artists – savings which could be passed along to the customer. I would rather see a Lagerfeld sketch of a Chanel gown, suit, or bracelet than a photograph any day! Will Kahn is a great example of how inspiring jewelry illustration can be, same with the Verdura catalog! Do we really need to see Taylor Swift (or Gwyneth, etc.) wearing yet another designer? Haven’t we pretty much seen it all? Incorporating more illustrations would be really fresh and allows the customer to envision herself in the design rather than admiring the model – who rarely looks like us – in the design.

  • Paula, the “no waste” refers to what you are touching on. This issue has “an eye on sustainability, substituting fashion illustrations for photographs in an effort to reduce the environmental impact associated with staging fashion photo shoots around the globe.” The money saved will be donated to charity.
