why is the cover blank?

White is a universal message of strength, purity, respect and hope. And yet, behind the silence of this cover, a very lively and personal issue of Vogue Italia comes to life. More than 40 artists accepted the challenge by sending a contribution, each from its quarantine.

We asked them to remain faithful to the situation and limitations that we all share in these difficult times, creating simple and honest images, and to represent fashion in order to reflect the moment they are experiencing firsthand, with nothing else in mind .

The images we received represent the widest range of emotions possible and together they write an important visual story of the times we are living, also documenting the effort of a community that lives and works remotely. Ultimately, this issue is an expression of what the director Emanuele Farneti and I, with all the Vogue Italia team, have always aspired to: talking about the world through fashion.

Here are the artists who participated in the project: Steven Klein, David Sims, Harley Weir, Oliver Hadlee Pearch, Emilie Kareh, Thomas De Kluvyer, Ibrahim Kamara, Charlotte Wales, Jack Davison, Max Pearmain, Laura Nash, Tyrone Lebon, Mert Alas, Marcus Piggott, Joe McKenna, Chris Simmonds, Larissa Hoffman, Drew Vickers, Tyler Mitchell, Roe Ethridge, Brianna Capozzi, Haley Wollens, Bella Hadid, Collier Schorr, Carlos Nazario, Ryan McGinley, Gigi Hadid, Sebastian Faena, Gray Sorrenti, Michael Bailey Gates, Glen Luchford, Paolo Roversi, Arnaud Lajeunie, Suzanne Koller, Ezra Petronio, Talia Chetrit, Andrea Artemisio, Petra Collins, Paloma Elsesser, Francesca Cisani, Willy Vanderperre, Olivier Rizzo, Rianne Van Rompaey, Isamaya Ffrench, Lindsey Wixon Young, Cynthia Harvey, Josh Collins, Stephanie Waknine and Paolo Ventura.

In times like this, we felt that a silent cover would speak louder than any word or image

It’s a universal message of purity, strength, respect, and hope. Yet behind the silence of this cover, a very lively and personal issue of Vogue Italia comes to life.

More than 40 artists welcomed the challenge to contribute from their own quarantines. We personally asked each artists to “stay true to the constraints that we are all sharing in these difficult times, creating simple, honest images”, and to depict the fashion “in a way that most reflects their personal moment, with nothing else in mind . ”

It’s fair to say that the resulting images depict the widest range of emotions, that seen together create a long distance community effort that becomes an important visual document of the times we are living. Ultimately, it’s an expression of what Emanuele and I believe Vogue Italia should aim to: talking about the world through fashion.
