記得 Vogue Italia 4 月號的留白封面嗎？經過兩個月，他們再有新搞作，邀請了來自不同國家的 8 位 2－10 歲的小朋友為 6 月號 Our New World edition 創作封面，用充滿童真的畫風畫上 Chanel 2019/20 Métiers d’art 系列。
#OurNewWorld, the June issue of Vogue Italia, will be on newsstands tomorrow. The issue is entirely dedicated to children, featuring eight covers drawn by eight very young authors aged between two and ten. #OurNewWorld Tadzio D.M., 6 years old, from Paris. We asked Tadzio what is the new world for him and he said “A world full of animals. I drew a penguin because I like their colours, they walk funny and they live in Antártica.” For the Vogue Italia’s cover he drew a @Chanelofficial look from the Métiers d’art 2019/20 collection. ———— Cover 3 of 8 Editor-in-Chief @EFarneti Creative Director @FerdinandoVerderi Discover more via link in bio.
Vogue Italia 總編輯 Emanuele Farneti 解釋這個構思：「我們之所以將兒童和他們的作品作為主題，有一個很簡單而且根本的原因。因為我們認為，在這場影響所有人的疫症中，兒童是最被忽視、最不明顯的受害者。先不談侵犯他們玩耍和社交的權利，在許多國家包括意大利，沒有人知道學校是否會在9月重新開學，以及如何重新開學。這簡直是不可思議和不可接受的。」因此 Vogue Italia 想由小朋友出發，一同想像新世界。
Vogue Italia 亦引用畢加索的一句名言：
#OurNewWorld, the June issue of Vogue Italia, will be on newsstands tomorrow. The issue is entirely dedicated to children, featuring eight covers drawn by eight very young authors aged between two and ten. #OurNewWorld Violetta T., 5 years old, lives in Milan. At first she didn't want to do the drawing, then when she found out it was for a magazine that you buy at the newsstand, she put a lot of effort into it. Then, when she was told it was going to be on the cover, she burst out laughing. She drew a @Chanelofficial look from the Métiers d’art 2019/20 collection. ———— “There’s a simple and fundamental reason why this issue of Vogue Italia is dedicated to children, to their new world. It’s because we think they are the most overlooked and least obvious victims of the pandemic that is affecting us all. Without even considering the infringement on their right to play and socialise, it is simply incredible and unacceptable that in many countries, Italy included, nobody yet knows if and how schools will reopen in September. Furthermore, children’s predicament is inevitably compounded by what has settled in their subconscious during these months of confusion and anxiety, the repercussions of which are destined to take shape over time. This is why the June Issue of Vogue Italia includes many fairy tales. For centuries, such stories have been used as a way to crystallise our fears and thereby come to terms with them. In many of these tales, clothing plays a crucial role because it is the means by which each of us chooses to portray ourselves to others. Accordingly, we have also taken the opportunity to try and explain to children this strange, often illogical, but still uniquely wonderful world of fashion – which, like in a fairy tale, will have to endure a rite of passage in these coming months. As for the covers, which have been entrusted to eight very young authors (aged between two and ten), I think there is little to add to the poetry of the images. Just something Picasso said: “It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.” #EmanueleFarneti ———— Cover 8 of 8 Editor-in-Chief @EFarneti Creative Director @FerdinandoVerderi
