As ever Vogue Japan leads the race of publication dates by a country mile and is already out there in the world with its September 2014 issue, which is nothing short of a masterpiece. The editors have been highly disciplined over the summer months at keeping the powder dry for the explosive, three-panel cover that features a host of living legends including none other than Malgosia Bela. Inside the issue, the cover story “The Icons of Perfection” treats readers to the fruits of the masterful collaborators Luigi & Iango. Styled by Giovanna Battaglia, Malgosia enters the story wearing Rick Owens and a few pages later a look from the Undercover Fall 2014 collection by Jun Takahashi. The cover story exceeds the lofty expectations reserved for September issues and the iconic Malgosia adds to the mix a gloss of perfection.
