Vogue Italia releases an all white cover for their April 2020 issue, out on April 10th. The timeless color represents many things:
“White is first of all respect.
White is rebirth, the light after darkness, the sum of all colours.
White is the colour of the uniforms worn by those who put their own lives on the line to save ours.
It represents space and time to think, as well as to stay silent.
White is for those who are filling this empty time and space with ideas, thoughts, stories, lines of verse, music and care for others.
White recalls when, after the crisis of 1929, this immaculate colour was adopted for clothes as an expression of purity in the present, and of hope in the future.
Above all: white is not surrender, but a blank sheet waiting to be written, the title page of a new story that is about to begin,” said the publication’s Editor-in-Chief Emanuele Farneti. (source)
