British Vogue Offers 14 Covers for August 2020

The global pandemic has wreaked havoc on the fashion industry and we have to hand it to our favorite fashion glossies for powering on through the crisis. Edward Enninful has been earning major kudos at British Vogue of late thanks to a great Judi Dench cover and a trio of covers celebrating frontline workers just last month. Enninful’s latest achievement includes not one, not two, but 14 covers for the publication’s August 2020 installment. The selection of covers shows various landscapes from around the U.K. drawn by the likes of David Sims, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Nadine Ijewere, David Hockney (below) and more.

UK Vogue August 2020 : British Landscapes by Fourteen Different Subjects


The multi-cover concept proved too much for our forum members. “Fourteen covers? Artwork after an issue dedicated to ‘normal people’ instead of models/celebs on the cover? Is British Vogue turning into Vogue Italia?” asked apple.

“Love the David Hockney one, but 14? Why?!” wondered Miss Dalloway.

“I’ve been sleeping very bad lately, but these 14 covers will surely be the insomnia remedy I’ve been waiting for,” declared YohjiAddict.

“I quite like it to be honest! I like the concept. Fourteen is overkill for sure, but I’m here for the general idea of it. Love the Hockney and intrigued to see the others,” added honeycombchild.

Benn98 felt the same way: “It’s a beautiful piece, but very generic in the sense that it will appeal to everyone and their mum. I imagine that was the intent. But 14 covers? My god, one Farneti is enough!”

“I love the cover. It is appropriate, easily brightening up your day and giving you peace of mind amidst the chaos…” MDNA chimed in.

“It’s a beautiful cover and quite a coup for any magazine, let alone U.K. Vogue, to get Hockney — I mean we’re talking about one of the greatest British artists of the last century,” stated Fiercification.
