Liu Wen is Vogue Singapore’s March cover star. Themed ‘Creativity’, the issue is part of a global push uniting all 27 editions of Vogue to celebrate fashion’s artistic spirit, following the success of September’s ‘Hope’ issue. Shot by one of Asia’s most visionary photographers, Leslie Zhang, Liu graces the cover in a full Prada look from Raf Simons and Miuccia Prada’s first co-collection.
Applying his astute eye for beauty, Zhang transformed Liu into a theatrical muse, shifting shapes in a dreamy cover story inspired by iconic Chinese literature—including ‘Moonlight over the Lotus Pond’ by Zhu Ziqing, ‘A Waterfall of Purple Wisteria Vines’ by Zong Pu and ‘April Rhapsody’ by Lin Huiyin. The cover also features a striking ‘Creativity’ seal, a modern reinterpretation of traditional Chinese seals created by Jiahui Tan from award-winning Singapore design consultancy, Fable.
“Like every other book, this #VogueCreativity issue has been a joy to put together,” says Norman Tan, editor-in-chief of Vogue Singapore. “It doesn’t escape us how fortunate we are to work in an industry where we have the pleasure to dream, innovate and create stories that speak to people. Our hope is that you will find something in these pages that makes your heart sing.”
Here at Vogue Singapore, this issue casts the spotlight on young creatives from one of Singapore’s top design schools. As we welcome glimpses into a post-pandemic world, the #VogueCreativity issue is an ode to the one thing uniting the fashion world and beyond—creativity.
