modern luxe.


finally, july’s vogue italia has hit europe, and so far, it’s a bit disappointing. the main ed, “modern luxe,” has one shot each of each model, on a white background with a slightly blurred effect. i was hoping for a more interactive editorial, similar to what david sims has done recently at vogue paris (where the images are a mix of black and white and color, full body and close up). naomi campbell has a solo girl edit, as does toccara jones (a fur ed…she looks amazing). sessilee lopez and yasmin warsame have an ed together, and chanel iman is in the beauty ed, which channels grace jones and early eighties punk. there’s also one page features with angela bassett, tina turner and more, plus interviews with donyale luna, pat cleveland, grace jones and carol la brie. too bad i don’t read italian.
