Fashion And Art Collide In This Vogue Italia Cover

Fashion IS art.
by Ian Vill

Vogue Italia served us a taste of its classic vogue covers by bringing something new to the table. Vogue Italia decided to make a bold move to bring back their classic fashion illustrations. This is an attempt to move away and lessen the environmental impact of photoshoots, according to the magazine.

 

YOSHITAKA AMANO

If you grew up exposed to the magical world of Final Fantasy as a child, then one look at this and you’ll know who created it. Yoshitaka Amano has been creating Final Fantasy illustrations since the game’s inception. A mixture of magic, Japanese, and art nouveau. His fantastical style evokes magic and beauty in a dream-like state.

*NO PHOTOSHOOT PRODUCTION WAS REQUIRED IN THE MAKING OF THIS ISSUE A preview of the January 2020 Vogue Italia Special Issue on newsstands January 7th @Yoshitaka_Amano featuring @LindseyWixson in @Gucci Cover 5 of 7 *** "All of the covers, as well as the features of our January issue, have been drawn by artists, ranging from well-known art icons and emerging talents to comic book legends, who have created without travelling, shipping entire wardrobes of clothes or polluting in any way. The challenge was to prove it is possible to show clothes without photographing them.

Paolo Ventura

Italian artist Paolo Ventura painted model Felice Nova on a gold and pink Gucci dress. He evokes a unique style of beauty by placing a very detailed face on a rough body and flat background.

Milo Manara

Erotic comic book artist Milo Manara drew this seemingly scantily clad image of Olivia Vinten. At first glance, she seems almost naked, but she’s actually wearing a body tone Gucci dress. His erotic style indeed translates into this captivating photo. #Dominatrix

*NO PHOTOSHOOT PRODUCTION WAS REQUIRED IN THE MAKING OF THIS ISSUE A preview of the January 2020 Vogue Italia Special Issue on newsstands January 7th @MiloManara_official featuring @OliviaVinten in @Gucci Cover 6 of 7 *** “I owe everything to women,” says Milo Manara, the father of erotic comics. The artist who collaborated with Hugo Pratt, Federico Fellini, and Alejandro Jodorowsky, this year, is celebrating fifty years of career. “For my cover I referenced the greatest of models, Michelangelo’s David, but in female form. I wanted to recreate the same pose, the quiet pride of the victor, which is the attitude that represents femininity in our times despite male resistance. David took on Goliath’s brute force with a slingshot. He won by using intelligence. Today, women have a great Goliath to defeat: male chauvinism, the patriarchy, and violence.” #MiloManara See more via link in bio.

Cassi Namoda

Mozambican artist Cassi Namoda painted model Ambar Cristalz in her rough but well thought out style. Her piece evokes emotion. Sadness and disappointment can be seen from the blues of her tears and the wet paintbrush hanging on her hand, dripping its red ink solemnly onto the floor. Her rough and dirty style truly sets the painful, almost regretful atmosphere of this artwork.

Delphine Desane

French artist Delphin created this striking artwork of Assa Barad wearing a peach Gucci dress. Her pose is reminiscent of the Virgin Mary with her hair in replacement for the hood and her eyes looking upwards in indifference.

David Salle

American artist David Salle created this painting of Lili Sumner wearing a pink Gucci dress with a black collar. A somewhat abstract art is placed on top of it. I have to be honest — I’m slightly confused at what I’m looking at.

“The challenge was to prove it is possible to show clothes without photographing them.”

By having artists draw fashion illustrations instead of having photoshoots, Vogue Italia is reducing its carbon footprint. Artists don’t have to travel or ship massive tons of clothes to create a fashion cover. All they need is their mind’s creativity and a pen.
