Vogue Portugal is one of the magazines who likes to use reprint as their covers. Not that’s anything wrong with it, but unfortunately their reprint covers are too boring for me.
The magazine celebrated their 100th issue in February with the only non model/celebrity cover which I don’t like at all. They should’ve using another image other than that. A stunning image of Dutch model Melissa Tammerijn by Richard Burbridge from the February 2011 issue of Vogue Russia was used for the March cover. Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen was photographed by Patrick Demarchelier in Boyish Allure editorial that published in the February issue of Vogue China, an image from the ed was reprinted for the April cover.
A reprint from Vogue Nippon April 2011 lensed by Sølve Sundsbø featuring the model who just walked her first Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show recenty, Caroline Brasch Nielsen, was used for the May cover. Siri Tollerod graced the June cover photographed by David Roemer, a reprint from her spread in Vogue Mexico March 2011. South African bombshell Candice Swanepoel featured for the July cover that was taken from her editorial shot by Steven Meisel in the February 2011 issue of Vogue Italia.
Cédric Buchet snapped another Victoria’s Secret catwalk first timer, Karmen Pedaru, for Paradis Bleu editorial in the June/July issue of Vogue Paris which was used for the August cover image of Vogue Portugal while Auguste Abeliunaite was photographed by Luis Monteiro for September issue, their first non reprint cover this year and it’s looked kinda US Vogue, no? Hopefully they produce more original cover.
The current face of Pura Lopez, Elena Sudakova was photographed by Bojana Tatarska for October cover. Sara Sampaio, the current face of Blumarine was shot naked by Luis Monteiro for the magazine’s November issue, not a reprint. And that leads us to last cover of 2011, Sophie Vlaming photographed by Raphael Delorme and Tierno Sy.
Well, I can’t say that I’m satisfied with this year’s covers line up but I really do appreciate their efforts to make original covers and hopefully they’ll make even more next year.

“I wanted to create a collection from timeless aesthetic while re-examining the House’s codes through a contemporary lens,” Gucci‘s Creative Director Frida Giannini explains about her latest collection, Cruise 2012. She added, “I set out to contaminate the styles seen in archival photographs from the Fifties and Sixties with a modern vision”
Her take on the fifties and sixties are shown in no less than 44 womenswear looks in lavish materials such as mélange, lurex, silk, georgette, cotton voile and crêpe de chine modeled by Kasia Struss, Melissa Tammerijn and Martha Streck. The lavish materials used by Frida Giannini combined with the sophisticated tailoring made these as a yet another wearable and luxurious collections that put the fashion house as one of the leading brands in the industry.
Black and white printed trench coat with stripes top, tight skirts that hit below the knee with double breasted jacket, pleats carved in gold on mini skirts with small collarless jacket, tight ankle-length pants with darts and cuffs, white dinner jacket worn with a golden reflector top and a trompe l’oeil dress combined with the same shade of chartreuse are some of the highlights from the collection that was presented earlier this June in New York City.
Gucci also featured square lady bags to carry on the shoulder or by hand, maxi shopper bags in animal prints, small belts to emphasize the waistline, plexi and PVC flower details, high heeled pumps with sharp points (in zebra prints!), a compelling python sandals and classic horsebit moccasins to completed the looks.

Gucci Cruise 2012 collections are now available in Gucci stores nationwide (Plaza Indonesia, Senayan City and Plaza Senayan). The collections are also available in Gucci stores worldwide.
Gucci also recently opened its newly renovated boutique with a new design concept by Frida Giannini in Via Montenapoleone on September 21st 2011, the first day of Milan Fashion Week Spring Summer 2012 which also the day that the latest collection from Gucci was presented (click here to view the fashion show video).
The 1600 square meters boutique located in the heart of Milan‘s fashion district, Quadrilatero della Moda, is still having Gucci‘s signature materials such as rosewood and marble but enhanced with the introduction of new elements such as ribbed glass, warm polished gold, smoked mirror and smoked bronze glass, recalling the elegance and richness of the Art Deco era.
“Via Montenapoleone is one of Europe’s most prestigious retail destinations so I wanted to amplify the luxuriousness of the boutique’s environment through natural light and space to create an aesthetic, which is complementary to the vision of the House today,” explains Giannini.
In the exclusive event, customers witnessed first handed how the meticulous attention to detail and the superb craftsmanship was given by the House’s most skilled artisans during the personalization of the handbags with the hand-embossed monogramming (each handbag featured a special inside plaque embossed with the location and date) at the artisan’s custom-built workshops inside the boutique.
In addition, for the first time ever the artisans displayed their work in front of the public on the signature Gucci moccasin and demonstrated expert techniques used in the shoe-making process.
The Montenapoleone store is among over 30 Gucci stores in the world that now reflect Frida Giannini‘s design concept following its successful roll-out in other cities including New York, Rome, Hong Kong, London, Shanghai and Paris.
A very special thanks to GUCCI – Indonesia for the exclusive images.
