Vanity. Luglio 1983. Numero 7

Milan: Edizioni Condé Nast, 1983. Quarto, publisher's illustrated paper wraps.

July 1983 issue of Italian avant-garde fashion magazine Vanity. Unrelated to Vanity Fair, the publication was the brainchild of fashion writer and editor Anna Piaggi and included works by her favorite fashion designers and creatives such as art director Juan Ramos, Bill Cunningham, and Nuyorican fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez. This issue features a cover and multiple spreads illustrated by Lopez, as well as appearances by Mugler, Fendi, Gaultier, Cinzia Ruggeri, Alaïa, and many other designers. "[Vanity] was a chance to step out of photography, and just work with illustrators…I wanted to express the idea of fantasies, but the clothes were all tied up with advertising, so to give the clothes a new spirit, I commissioned illustrators, and this was very relieving. The English clothes could be photographed, but the Italian really needed interpretation" (from a 1987 interview with Piaggi). Vanity gained a cult-like following under Piaggi’s direction until her departure in 1984, though the magazine continued to publish until 1989. Price sticker and a few small ink notes to upper wrap. Some soiling and light creasing to wraps. Very good. Uncommon. Item #9012
