Vogue Italia shows respect and pays tribute to the doctors and nurses who are fighting the coronavirus outbreak, with a completely white cover of their April 2020 #Imagine edition.
White is, first and foremost, respect. White is rebirth, light after the darkness, the sum of all the colors. White is the uniforms of those who have saved lives while risking their own. It’s time and space for thinking. And for staying silent too. White is for people who are filling this time and space with ideas, thoughts, stories, verses, music and kindness to others. It’s a reminder that after the crisis in 1929, clothes turned white, a color chosen to express purity in the present and hope for the future. And above all, white is not surrender; it’s a blank page to be filled, the frontispiece of a new story about to begin – Emanuele Farneti, editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia.
“The issue also contains the first major fashion feature of the lockdown era, created over the course of a week in several countries around the world by more than 40 artists of the Vogue Italia community (photographers, models, stylists, creative directors, make-up artists), who used seasonal garments or their own personal collections to create images of themselves, their families or distant friends via internet.“
Thanks to the “digital solidarity” initiative implemented by Condé Nast, the digital version of the April issue of Vogue Italia is available to download free of charge.
