Of course it’s the tokens.
What do you mean?
I hate the black canvas on it
Looks like the promos for American Horror Story Asylum mixed with Cult lol.
Thinking outside and inside the box. Clever photo/design concept which actually ties into the editorial theme for once. I can't recall seeing this effect anywhere else (in recent memory anyways). Graphic, understated and impactful! Strikes me as more Time or Newsweek-y rather than fashion-y but I'll take it.
I don’t get it. Are they replicating?
Vogue Arabia was brimming with such potential and promise of pure high fashion escapism. And that inaugural issue by I&V of a bejewelled, veiled Gigi on the cover kept that promise of unapologetic ME opulence and allure. Now it’s this high school theatre kidz doing hands-across-the-ME for the masses: It’s so literal and dowdy LOL
The human centipede 4
Would've been better if they were photographed in different venues and they were posing like that. It's gives more meaning to "building bridges" since they're "connected" despite being apart.
They obviously stuck with the studio shoot, they could have at least edited the background. The shadows in the background ruin it for me. Made it look amateur.
It’s faux women empowerment using women who are from good families (the ruling families if I may add) to make it seem like women of the gulf reign are empowered and do not suffer under a tyrannical patriarchal rule.
We call them « vases » locally and I think it explains it all.
Thanks for the explanation
Arabia should have never given into the SJ/PC gimmicks that are being endorsed by the current worst of the Vogues: US/UK/Italia. Denzel Washington made a matter-of-factly point that “movement” doesn’t necessarily mean “progression”: And that’s exactly all I hear whenever Emanuel or Edward post some shallow PC blurb on SM to beg for likes. And when it’s the realm of fashion, it’s more blatantly clear that there’s not been even an inertia of creative progression nor innovation. Frankly, fashion has taken at least 20 steps back. And that’s being generous.
This is a Vogue that could have easily avoided and defied the shallow socio-political trappings that have diminished the brand to that of a weekly newspaper or TMZ desperate to trend with the latest current events. Vogue Arabia could have easily gone full hardcore high fashion— which would have likely created a loyal readership not just amongst its own ME region, but globally: I always wished Vogue Arabia would be the next Vogue Italia... It could easily have been the high fashion oasis where other Vogues have become mass-pandering newspapers. Of course such a move would be highly unPC, but if any Vogue could afford such a statement to make, it would have been Vogue Arabia.
This sort of “empowerment” of the common women— but as you’ve pointed out, not really cuz it’s still the elitist and they’ve always been afforded privileges and power that the everyday women just don’t have access to, comes off more shallow and hollow than if they had stuck with pure high fashion excess, which has always been accused of and dismissed as superficiality anyway. No one needs high fashion: It’s such an illusion, a mirage, and a fevered dream. But more than ever now, that dream is needed. High fashion is not for everyday people and lowering to the level of the commoners has killed the high in fashion.
(Cranky rant over.)
