Vogue Italia has just unveiled the covers to its first issue for 2020. This time around for the new year, the fashion magazine has chosen to go photoshoot-free for the cover in efforts to promote sustainability. For the first time in Vogue Italia history, all seven covers have been donated by either an emerging artist, comic legend, or well-known artist. On top of the famous Yoshitaka Amano, known for his extensive work in the Final Fantasy gaming franchise, names like Paolo Ventura, Delphine Desane, Milo Manara, Cassi Namoda, Vanessa Beecroft and David Salle add their efforts in illustrating models dressed in Gucci.

Each cover reads the line “No photoshoot production was required for the making of this issue” at the bottom of the illustrations. It should also be noted that all budget saved from production costs will be donated to the restoration of the Querini Stampalia Onlus Foundation in Venice, damaged late last year due to flooding. Those looking to pick up a copy of January’s Vogue Italia can find its on newsstands on January 7. Head over to Vogue Italia to see the each of the seven covers.

In other art-related news, a London man was arrested for attacking a $26 million USD Picasso painting.

*NO PHOTOSHOOT PRODUCTION WAS REQUIRED IN THE MAKING OF THIS ISSUE A preview of the January 2020 Vogue Italia Special Issue on newsstands January 7th @Yoshitaka_Amano featuring @LindseyWixson in @Gucci Cover 5 of 7 *** "All of the covers, as well as the features of our January issue, have been drawn by artists, ranging from well-known art icons and emerging talents to comic book legends, who have created without travelling, shipping entire wardrobes of clothes or polluting in any way. The challenge was to prove it is possible to show clothes without photographing them. This is a first, Vogue Italia has never had an illustrated cover: and as far as I know no issue of Vogue Italia in which photography is not the primary visual medium has ever been printed. Thanks to this idea, and to these artists' process, the money saved in the production of this issue will go towards financing a project that really deserves it: the restoration of @FondazioneQueriniStampalia in Venice, severely damaged by the recent floods.” @efarneti See more via link in bio.
