Vogue Italia has dedicated its latest magazine to children, “the most overlooked and least obvious victims of the pandemic”.
For the first time in its history, the magazine commissioned children to design eight special editions covers.
The magazine’s latest issue asked 100 children aged between two and ten to redesign this season’s trendiest fashion looks.
Editor Emanuel Farneti said of the decision to use children’s drawings for Vogue Italia‘s front covers: “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.”
The eight cover artists include Thomas W, four years old, New York; Nori T, five years old, Amsterdam; Tadzio DM, six years old, Paris; Violetta T, five years old, Milan; Camilla C, two years old, Dakar; Rachele T, five years old, Bologna; Pietro R, six years old, Milan, and Giorgio P, ten years old, Parma.
The theme of children also runs throughout the issues, including an exchange of letters between famed designer Giorgio Armani and eight-year-old Luca, who proposes to Armani a collection of outfits that come with special superpowers.
