Vogue Italia has steered clear of photoshoots for its January 2020 issue. In their absence, the magazine invited a handful of artists from a range of backgrounds to design the cover art. One of the contributors was none other than famed Final Fantasy artist Yoshitaka Amano, who drew model Lindsey Wixson in his unmistakable style.
"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 traveling, shipping entire wardrobes of clothes, or polluting in any way," editor-in-chief Emanuele Farneti wrote on Instagram. "The challenge was to prove it is possible to show clothes without photographing them."
The special issue – which hits newsstands January 7 today! – will also benefit a local cause.
It's always fantastic to see Amano's illustrations pop up, especially in unexpected places.
