With 2020 just having entered, why not test ourselves to do things differently while being creative and productive. This is exactly the message Vogue Italia has sent out with this recent January issue. This past week, Vogue Italia released a total of seven covers that are quite unique and break the standards of the average vogue cover. This month cover showcase fashion through illustration rather than photography.

Vogue is a fashion and lifestyle magazine that was founded in the United States in 1892. In the year of 1932, Vogue launched its first color photograph and since then it has never stopped reproducing magazines with photographic covers. However, everything comes to an end and this month Vogue changed its cover creative direction. The covers for Vogue Italia left behind the glamorous photoshoots and substitute it with glamorous illustrations. This approach is meant to tell clothes without photographic them.

Vogue wants to do things differently and some of the problems that want to address by using illustrations rather than photography is explained briefly by their editor Emanuele Farneti,

“One hundred and fifty people involved. About 20 flights and a dozen or so train journeys. Forty cars on standby. Sixty international deliveries. Lights switched on for at least ten hours non-stop, partly powered by gasoline-fuelled generators. Food waste from the catering services. Plastic to wrap the garments. Electricity to recharge phones, cameras….”

By working with illustrators instead of photographers, Vogue saved a lot of money. The budget that was allocated for their January photoshoot will now be donated to restoring the Fondazione Querini Stampalia in Venice, which was damaged by the recent floods. The participating illustrators are Vanessa Beecroft, Cassi Namoda, Milo Manara, Delphine Desane, David Salle, Paolo Ventura, and Yoshitaka Amano. This set of talented illustrators were also in charge of illustrating the features of the inside pages. Some of the styles this artist explore are paint, watercolor, and collage. The covers feature clothing from Gucci and even tope models like Ambar Cristal Zarzuela, Olivia Vinten, Assa Baradji, Felice Nova Noordhoff, and Lindsey Wixson. Take a look at these wonderful covers below and enjoy!

*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 Female figure wearing @Gucci by Vanessa Beecroft @VBuntitled Cover 2 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. This is a first, Vogue Italia has never had an illustrated cover: and as far as I know no issue of Vogue in which photography is not the primary visual medium has ever been printed. Thanks to this idea, and to these artists' process, the money saved in the production of this issue will go towards financing a project that really deserves it: the restoration of @FondazioneQueriniStampalia in Venice, severely damaged by the recent floods.” @efarneti See more via link in bio.

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.
