Industrie Magazine Gets Up Close with Cara Delevingne



Industrie, the insidery London-based fashion publication, has just released its Issue 6 cover, which features Cara Delevingne. To say that the British model is having a moment is an understatement. 

This season alone, Delevingne appeared in campaigns for Fendi, YSL Beauty, Mulberry, DKNY and Saint Laurent; she was tapped for two high-profile September issues, W and Vogue Japan.

She's an especially fitting choice because this is Industrie's 'Influence'-themed issue. The model is currently riding a wave of success, but she also entered the fashion industry with a measure of notoriety due to her upper crust background and reputation for partying; later, she built her career by winning powerful industry friends*. In many ways, Delevingne's story is a case study of how influence works, demonstrating how certain kinds of privilege and connections dictate success. 

And on a purely visual level, it's a stunning cover. Photographed by Alasdair McLellan, the effect is very intentional and controlled, but it's still young and simple. 

*For example: one of Delevingne's first big jobs, for Burberry, was photographed by Mario Testino (working with the influential photographer puts a model on the fast track) and also featured Jourdan Dunn (Delevingne and Dunn's social media lovefest has benefitted both of their careers).
