Quote of the Day: Franca Sozzani

Posted in Quote by Nneoma Ulu on April 11, 2011

“I needed to have a consistent, recognizable look to every cover. My idea was that even if you took the word “Italia” off, you know what Vogue Italia is. Many magazines don’t seem to have a connection between one cover and the next, and it becomes hard to tell them apart. Especially today—images can be printed in such a high quality, but that also flattens them out, in a way. There’s a similar problem in fashion. Everyone can buy clothes — the most accessible clothes are not of the best quality, but unless you look at the label, you don’t know who it’s by. It’s this kind of oversaturation that makes me believe we are on the brink of another huge change.”

– Franca Sozzani, Editor-in-Chief – Vogue Italia on her incessant use of Steven Meisel

Makes me want to go and buy back issues of Vogue Italia for her 25 year reign and burn all my high street clothes. Inspiration or delusion? Whatever it is, it’s thought-provoking.
