Vogue Paris is bringing a radical revolution wave with their March 2013 issue. Or so they say. Covering the clean issue is Finnish model Suvi Koponen, an authentically surprising cover choice for everyone.
Which is not to say that the image, authored by Mert and Marcus, isn’t pleasant or aesthetically right. It’s just difficult to rank Suvi in the Vogue Paris girls gallery. Next to Lara Stone or Anja Rubik. Of course, if I were to speculate, I’d say that this is a new Alt – esque direction for Vogue Paris, in a striving effort to fly higher than Roitfeld’s openly sensual orbit.
But then again Suvi Koponen is on a significant rise, we’ve seen her on the cover of this month’s i-D magazine, next to Kate Moss who had her fair share of i-D covers. There’s no telling before we’ll see the actual pictorial. Do you feel the change? Or just another wannabe – cool editor maneuver from Emmanuelle Alt?
