I don't know about you, but I owe much of my passion for fashion writing to Vogue. As a teen, I used to dig through those dusty Book Sale bins for what I considered the ultimate treasure: cheap, outdated back issues I'd hoard with wild abandon for, like, P150 a piece (a small sum compared to the original P600-P800 range they normally go for in regular magazine stands). Good times.
Now, though, there's no need to even get your hands dirty—Vogue Italia, the publication's Milan-based edition, has opened its archives for three months of free access. Yay for quarantine reading material.
And yes, I speak zero Italian, but with its penchant for provocative, daring imagery, you can bet just looking is enough to soak up some serious inspiration.
Devour every single one of the magazine's issues, starting all the way back from its first cover in 1964. "Every page is reproduced in high-resolution color, with rich indexing enabling images to be searched by garment type, designer, [and] brand names, and much more viewable in beautiful high-resolution color," the title wrote in their Instagram announcement post.
