Last weekend I finally decided to buy VOGUE Netherlands, our very first issue ever! For months they hyped up everyone about the arrival of this MAJOR and ICONIC fashion mag in our small country of which you would never make a direct link with fashion, right? Well it has arrived, and guess what? I’m kind of disappointed about the cover. Maybe I just expected way too much. The cover is just plain simple to be honest, and fresh faces Ymre Stiekema, Romee Strijd and Josefien Rodermans rocked some Acne, Valentino and Chanel.
Guess what? Vogue Netherlands already stirred up some drama around there first issue. The cover text “Nummer één in Nederland” ( translation: Number one in the Netherlands ) is the SAME cover text of the very first issue of ELLE Netherlands back in 1989. Can you believe that? How original…… NOT!
The cover aside, this first issue was an okay introduction of what we can expect. I surely hope they will introduce more fresh faces and add some more COLOR in Vogue Netherlands, since we always talk about how “we live in a multicultural society”. Hopefully we will see more of that in the future.
Overall, they did a pretty good job.
