Guinevere's edit is nice, but lately I've been noticing that VI has been doing single designer editorials, single Italian designer editorials. I counted two in the February issue (Roberto Cavalli and Gucci with Mariacarla) and now this all Miuccia edit. It's a little lazy, non?

There was also an all-Prada editorial in the August (?) issue shot by Inez and Vinoodh with Eniko Mihalik.

Non... because 99% of Prada is styled in magazines exactly as it appeared on the runway. If you look closely... you'll see Jacob K uses his imagination here... by draping, rolling & folding the pieces in an exquisite way... so IMO there's nothing lazy about it.

The models represent the constant changing rate of fashion (they are slaves to fashion), while the people in glass are the normal clothes that that seem outdated by today's radical fashions, and thus museum-like.

In the end, though, I really don't know what the message is. Alls I know is that the clothes are totally fabulous and I love the styling. It is some of the best I have seen in VI in a while!
I agree 100% and was thinking something along the lines of this concept but then I thought "Why the hip-hop styling?".

Surely if they wanted to show how fast and progressive fashion is, they would have used a different aesthetic? Perhaps the futurism of Balenciaga and Lagerfeld?

I love the styling, but I find it confusing in relation to the concept of the shoot.

It's not something recent. VI has been doin this for seasons, since at least 2003 (thats when I started buying VI). Every season Gucci, Prada, Fendi, Cavalli, D&G, Blumarine and Armani get an ed.

And most of the time the result is far from lazy imo.

I agree, if they indeed wanted to depict this concept, the clothes doesn't fit.
This editorial is a bit mysterious I'm not sure to know what it exactly wanted to express which is somehow a good thing but the photographies are a bit boring, Meisel could have done better...

Anyway, this is the first Vogue Italia I'm going to buy in a while !

I haven't commented about Meisel's ed yet, so... I did actually like the concept and styling of it, except the use of Everlast, Adidas etc. sport shoes... I don't know, maybe it's part of Sprouse aesthetic, I'm not completely into it. And since it's written on the cover Fearless Fashions, I had to expect it.
I'm still not sure about the whole concept, even though I liked it, I have a feeling that it could have been different.

I think I used the wrong word. I meant that it would be better to relate a designer's pieces to the rest of the collections and find an overall concept. Focusing on one designer's collection is not a bad thing if it is totally groundbreaking, but when it is done almost every issue, it becomes a little monotonous. I guess it is an alternative way though. And thanks, mikel, I didn't realize that they have been doing this for a while lol. I just started looking through VI a couple of years ago .

The hip-hop style is questionable. But I don't think they intended for it to be hip-hop, but rather a medly of different genres. It is overall gaudy. And honestly, I think it is meant to be an overexaggeration of what some of the young of today wear. The American Apparel crowd, if you will. Not that there is anything wrong with American Apparel !

Thanks for agreeing, btw . It is a very mysterious editorial indeed. I love it when editorials are cerebrally stimulating!

There is also something significant about the portraits of the glassed-in people on the walls. It's as if they are staring at the models, studying them. So the models are studying the people in the glass, while at the same time being studied by them.
