There is no time for trifling matters this decade, it’s strictly essentials or nothing at all. The good people at Vogue Deutsch have evidently read the same memo and have duly followed suit with a February 2020 issue devoted to essentials. No surprise then, the German publication has gone with Anok Yai for its latest cover. Photographed by Gregory Harris, Anok is pictured wearing a leather trouser and motorcycle jacket by Balenciaga. Astute readers will of course recognize this cover as Anok’s sixth such honor for Vogue and the first of the decade—not a bad way to kick off the 2020s.
