I was looking through some holiday snaps earlier and couldn't help but notice an issue of Vogue sitting on a table in the background of one particular photo. The photograph was taken whilst on a family holiday in Ibiza, during the summer of 2006. I suddenly remembered everything and thought to myself, how on earth could I of forgotten this gem?
The cover of UK Vogue's September 2006 issue features none other than Kate Moss, photographed by Nick Knight and styled by Kate Phelan. Moss wears a cashmere/wool jacket and trousers by Jil Sander. Can't remember the cover? I can still recall walking into the magazine store at the airport and being stopped in my tracks due to the cover's unusual monochrome appearance.
I just had to dig the issue out this afternoon, when I also came across a few other hidden treasures (stay tuned!). The inside includes fashion stories from Nick Knight, Corinne Day, Craig McDean, Patrick Demarchelier and Thomas Schenk.
An editorial entitled 'Shine On' with Kate Moss by Craig McDean and styled by Kate Phelan is my favorite from this September issue. The images consist of Moss wearing a range of pieces from Gareth Pugh, Yves Saint Laurent, Prada and Jeffery Portman. There are only six pictures but they show Moss at her finest — that understated glamour for which Kate has become extremely well-known.
Why don't you familiarize yourself with this issue and reignite the thread here.
