Vogue Paris Translation: Editorial, March 2012

Below is the editorial written by Emmanuelle Alt to introduce the March issue of Vogue Paris and my translation of her words from French to English.

La mode, ses propositions radicales, ses décalages luxueux, ses coups de folie, ses états de grâce, sont le fil rouge de ce numéro. Comment l'interpréter ? Comment se l'approprier ? Du défilé à la réalité, la série photographiée par Inez & Vinoodh invite à suivre son instinct, à libérer son imagination. Du total look du créateur à sa variation soft, taillée juste pour soi, c'est après tout une affaire d'invention personnelle. Comme de passer la frontière entre le jour et la nuit, le naturel des matins clairs et le glamour sophistiqué du soir. Mais la mode 2012, c'est aussi des temps forts. Sur la top Natalia Vodianova, des pièces phares de créateurs remixent la vague nippone des années 90 et chorégraphient la silhouette de futur. Le futur, c'est qui inspire Sarah Burton, brillante designer qui, sans gommer l'héritage de son génial mentor, insuffle une magie renouvelée à la maison McQueen. Sa collection est la sensation de la saison. La mode flirte t-elle avec l'art ? Pour Cindy Sherman, artiste américaine majeure, les métamorphoses de l'apparence sont en tout cas un thème récurrent, obsédant. Alors que New York lui consacre une rétrospective, son vrai visage est dans Vogue ce mois-ci.

Fashion, its radical propositions, its luxurious shifts, its fits of madness, its state of grace, these are the common threads of this issue. How to interpret it? How to appropriate it? From runway to reality, the series was photographed by Inez & Vinoodh who were encouraged to follow their instincts, to free their imaginations. The total look of the designer has a soft variation, cut just for oneself, it is after all a matter of personal invention. Like crossing the border between day and night, the natural in the morning light and the sophisticated glamour in the evening. But fashion in 2012, it is also strong moments. On the top is Natalia Vodianova, the key pieces of the designers remix the Japanese wave of the 90s and choreograph the silhouette of the future. The future, this is what inspires Sarah Burton, the brilliant designer who, without erasing the legacy of her great mentor, instills a renewed magic at the house of McQueen. Her collection is the sensation of the season. Fashion flirts with art? For Cindy Sherman, a major American artist, the metamorphoses of the appearance are in any case a recurring theme, obsessive. Whereas New York organized a retrospective, her true face is in Vogue this month.
