I think the key to the cover is the initial discordant reaction.

It's clearly styled with 80's signifiers. Just look at those earings! But it has a deathly feel. It's also finished/unfinished looking like student work: no commercial retoucher would leave eyes that badly overdone, skintones that unfinished, post-processing quite that fried. So there's irony. It's not of a conventional commercial aesthetic. It's rough edged.

To those who felt it not very Italian Vogue. OK it's not Amercian Vogue, nor probbaly any other, but Italian Vogue - well it is - therein lies your answer.

In winter one perhaps should speak of death. Of trends. It is the season when one of nature's cycles dies. Recall Lee's bonfire of show props; his funereal pire - yet, with the tarot, a new beginning in death, a recycling.

For we've already seen the 80s revisit's demise, eased out for a nature ravaged, minimal, avante-garde SS10. The shoulder now a found object for Rei's collage. Miuccha rough sheering the business suit for other uses. The banker a disgraced form. V&R taking a chainsaw to Carrollian prom dresses. The bonfire of all that 80's conspicuous consumption and financial markets worship. The preppy city whizz-girl shot down in her own Flaming Ferrari. Everything overcooked, ablaze. Again. Margaret Thatcher as Guy Fawkes. Perhaps.

So the style foretells the death fate of the trend to which it speaks. It's fin-de-decade.

Just a few thoughts

Just clocked the ed story.

Must say I do like the way 80's girl has collapsed overheated and the sciencey guys/ men in white coats have made a beeline for flowing in a more aqua world.

Water over fire. Elementary.

Cause she was the only model who accepted to dye her hair this awful shade of red? That must come with some kind of reward

My first reaction was but after looking at the editorial, I think the styling and clothes are the main attraction here! The title is very fitting because as I keep looking back at the cover my eyes goes straight to the earrings then the red lips and hair.

She almost looks like Jean Grey gone couture while trying to escape some toxic airport(??) The red hair works here along with the bleached eyebrows or lack there of, and the pale skin with all the colorful stand out clothing. Very strong Meisel...very strong indeed!
