For weeks now, it’s the only thing the Dutch fashion crowd has been talking about: Dutch Vogue. What will the cover look like? Which model(s) are going to be on it? Is our country even ready for a magazine like this?
This afternoon, Karin Swerink (editor in chief) and her team presented the very first issue of Dutch Vogue at a press lunch in George W.P.A. and it is fab. Very fab! Gorgeous Romee Strijd, Ymre Stiekema and Josefien Rodermans – lensed by Marc de Groot – are on the cover, wearing Acne, Valentino and Chanel. I have to be honest, when I saw the cover circulating on the internet this morning, I thought the cover was a bit too young and girly (and pink!) but after seeing it in real life and holding it for a little while, it just seems to be perfect.
At the moment I am dealing with an extreme and severe cough, but I dragged myself out of bed for the press lunch and went straight back after. The timing of my cough is great though, I have more than enough time to flip through the pages and actually read this April issue.
