It’s hard to believe that it’s taken Condé Nast this long to give us a Polish edition of Vogue, yet Vogue Polska makes its long-awaited debut this week on newsstands. While a select few magazines are cutting back in 2018, the release gives a much-welcomed boost to the industry and reminds us that there’s still a demand for print. Veteran Polish models Anja Rubik and Malgosia Bela appropriately take to the inaugural cover, photographed by Juergen Teller on location in the middle of Warsaw as the Palace of Culture and Science looms in the foggy background.
Unfortunately, the magazine’s debut failed to make an impression on our forum members. “Feels like I’m looking at Vogue Polish Architecture or something. Pretty weak debut cover for me,” stated Ed the moment the cover dropped.
