Vogue Germany drums up a different beat with their latest December issue. Photographer duo Luigi & Iango create stellar visuals for this artistically graphic editorial featuring the current muses of our time Ajak Deng, Lineisy Montero, Grace Bol, Achok Majak, Riley Montana, Mari Agory, Nykhor Paul, Amilna Estevao, and newcomer, Francine James. The black beauties represent in all their radiant glory, cloaked in the most engaging pieces from Alexander Wang, Rick Owens, Junya Watanabe, and Givenchy courtesy of Patti Wilson. Piercing gazes, svelte bodies, dazzling posing – all is expertly captured here in a way that elevates the thought of simplified tribal convention to powerful modernity.
