The colours of the print on the cover is horrendous, makes Suvi look so washed out and dull

I appreciate the simplicity of the main cover story. I just feel perhaps Suvi lacks the conviction necessary to carry such editorial...a bit too vacant looking?

The 'Femme Universelle' editorial is quite sublime.

The main ed with Suvi is incredibly boring. "Signal Reize" is quite nice! Love all the redhead models!

The styling in Welt Offen is impeccable ... you often see this type of combinations (particularly in European publications) go so terribly wrong, either it borders in costume territory, or it just looks moronic or apologetic ('despite this messy ethnic mess, look at how we combine it with civilized elements you can actually relate to!'). Nicola Knels blended it so well that it's not going anywhere or making a point, it's just there making perfect sense with each ensemble and looks more like a small celebration of the diversity of techniques for clothing-making.

Also pretty surprised/amazed to see Maggie Rizer and looking exactly as she did 15 years ago, I actually thought it was a newbie Maggie look-alike at first. Crazy.

Giampaolo's story is the weakest part of the issue imo... the concept of the story is reminiscent of those days when Koto Bolofo was working regularly for Vogue Germany.... hard to believe they're still clearly aiming for this type of stories and using someone so creatively and technically inferior that probably charges more than someone like Koto. Mat makes a good point on the target that could love this (tumblr devotees), and I'd argue they can handle the same concept in a less commercial, less basic execution, but magazines don't seem to think so... they haven't acknowledged (or refuse to do acknowledge) that there is a younger generation that lives for imagery probably more than they live for clothes and makeup tricks, and that have expectations that could easily raise the bar in any publication and enough knowledge to appreciate actual creativity, not the secondary leftovers of someone without input in his field like Giampaolo.

I'll probably pick this up though, just for the main story.

Thanks for all the work, Mat!

Nicola Knels' styling in both stories makes the editorials that much better.

I fell in love with Suvi last year when she covered VP, so she is beautiful but god this editorial is boring. Her facial expression isn't changing at all, you can make a gif with bodies and backgrounds changing but the head staying the same.

Indeed beautiful styling in both of Nicola's eds, is so rare to find such good ensembles nowadays. Both completely different but really charming.

Also agree on Giampaolo's point

Suvi's ed is sensational! Not to mention Katlin's ed!!! So Haute
Nice to see the amazing Maggie Rizer on set! Icon. Great issue.
