Vogue Paper Dolls

Nuno DaCosta makes a statement with his Paper Dolls in the new Vogue Portugal.

Now published by LightHouse, Vogue Portugal has recently had a makeover resulting in a different look, feel and aesthetic. Nuno's paper dolls are high on the scale of sophistication with garments exquisitely painted, figures sensitively drawn and accessories created with accuracy. The pieces appear within the fashion magazine on 350g `Couché´paper - an indulgent find for every reader. Nuno gives us some background on the project, "I was commissioned by the new Editor in chief Sofia Lucas to create a 'Vogue Woman' paper doll who would have a wardrobe for every event in her life.  There is The Vogue office Look featuring Balenciaga and Margiela. The Met Gala look featuring Molly Goddard.  A look for an evening out dancing at The Boom Boom Room in New York and even a Sunday lounging outfit featuring Gucci and Prada.  Sofia, the Editor in Chief wanted the reader to be transported back to a more innocent time.  She wrote that she wanted to celebrate style.  Celebrate women.  Celebrate paper. Celebrate innocence.  She wanted the reader to play and to dream again.  It was such a beautiful concept and an opportunity to take my work somewhere it had never been before creatively. I loved every minute and I hope the readers enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it together. The license for Vogue Portugal was recently bought by a new publishing house which has completely rebooted the magazine with a complete design and business overhaul.  The magazine has been refined and rebuilt with a new minimal and modern aesthetic whilst retaining the Vogue DNA and heritage. Design wise, it feels more like a coffee table book than a magazine, it has a lovely weight to it and the paper is lush."

The contributor's page copy translates, 'Permanent Paint-  It's normal that you would have heard about Nuno da Costa, the illustrator of our #voguepaperdolls,  His roster of clients include Chanel, Thierry Mugler, Dior and now Vogue Portugal.'
