vintage cover art...


Remember when mag covers were about art and fashion, and not the latest celebrity with an agenda to promote something? I love this vintage Harper's Bazaar cover with Summery stripes and a nautical shade of navy. Isn't it gorgeous? I wonder if I could find it as a print...

Happy Friday by the way!

How nice. I really think that fashion magazines should go back to using models for their covers instead of celebrities. Models that we don't even know by name! Can you imagine?

I'm with you...
Hate celebrities on the cover just to pimp some movies or projects they're into...so commercialized.
I say...bring fashion and glam back to the mags ♥

the simplicity of this piece is something all magazines should take a cue from. the stripes define the cover not a million blaring headlines!

Liz said...

Totally agree. Nowadays you can browse the whole magazine by just reading the cover. This makes such a statement on its own!

Isn't this cover great? Kind of reminds me of gondolas and romantic strolls along the river...sigh.

I wish for more artistic magazine covers, more fashion as art, less photoshop in the editorials. I would love this as a print as well. Have a wonderful weekend! :)

You could really credit Ms Anna wintour for the superfluous use of celebs donning covers...it was her genius idea to start the trend and wattya know?...Vogue sales skyrocketed! I'm with ya tho...I'm all about those gorgeous no name models...leave the stars for the tabloids, dont they get enough coverage as it is? Such valid and Great points!

I love the simplicity of this cover, it makes me want to know what's inside the issue! And I agree with you, this would be so great as a framed print!

Beyond chic! Simple and modern too! Wish I owned that top!

I love this cover and the summery colors. I agree. I would rather have an unknown model on the cover of a fashion magazine. Please let me know if you find this print because I just love it for summer.

soo good. i really like the play of the stripes. i think too, that it would be a good idea to blow this up for a poster. or you might even copy it for yourself in watercolor.

It is for this very reason that Vogue Australia is my dream job - the magazine always uses models on its covers, sometimes without any words but for the Vogue header.
