I also found it odd, the emphasis on 'East/West.' I should know, my dad works there and I visit him once/twice a year. Hong Kong for me always seemed more modern and naturally more progressive than China, and there is still some British influence, but for the most part I find the overall culture very homogenous. Like Taiwan. If I think of a distinct East/West culture in Asia it would be Singapore, not even Japan. It sounds like this editor is trying to window-dress or build a narrative around the magazine, which I suppose is fine. As for the theme, I now like the duo cover more, looking forward to Fei Fei's OG one. And all of it looks very much for Vogue Australia's anniversary cover with Gemma a few years ago. I certainly doubt whether the magazine will be like Vogue Taiwan. It sounds more like it will be like Vogue Arabia, local celebrities every now and then, but mostly international models. There too, I mean, she insulted all Asians really. Except maybe the Shintoist Japanese . It's absurd of her to think it shouldn't affect Hong Kongese. Others may not have followed such a hardline approach as China did to ban Gigi, but it was insulting to them all the same.
