Η Vogue στην Κορέα παρουσίασε το πρώτο της ομόφυλο ζευγάρι στο εξώφυλλό της.

Η Ισπανίδα φωτογράφος και καλλιτέχνιδα Coco Capitán ήρθε στο φως της δημοσιότητας μετά την πρόσφατη συνεργασία της με την Gucci. Αυτή τη στιγμή, μάλιστα, μια έκθεση της τρέχει στη Σεούλ της Νότιας Κορέας.

Με αφορμή αυτό, το διάσημο περιοδικό μόδας αποφάσισε να παρουσιάσει την Capitán με την φίλη της Frances Wilks στο εξώφυλλο του τεύχους Ιανουαρίου. Μάλιστα το περιοδικό κυκλοφόρησε με 2 εξώφυλλα με το λεσβιακό ζευγάρι να πρωταγωνιστεί.

새해 <보그>의 첫 번째 커버는 사진가 ‘코코 카피탄(@cococapitan)’의 필름입니다. 그녀는 자신의 뷰 파인더에 파트너이자 여자친구인 화가 프란세스 윌크스(@franceswilks)와 나란히 섰고 커버가 공개된 후, 자신의 인스타그램에 장문의 글을 올렸습니다📝 _ ”전 사생활 노출을 꺼리지만, 이번 촬영은 대한민국 역사상 최초로 유명 대중 매체에서 성 소수자 커플을 커버로 다룬 것이라는 점에서 꼭 언급하고 싶습니다. 이번 작업으로 성별 및 성적 취향의 다양한 스펙트럼을 존중하며 지지해준 것에 대한 깊은 감사를 전합니다.” _ _ 지난 여름, 서울 일정을 마치고 동경에서 여행 중인 코코에게 전화 한통을 걸었습니다. 런던으로 가기 전에, 하루 만 서울에서 우리와 의미있는 작업을 만들어보자고, 당신에게 가장 의미있는 파트너 프란세스와 함께 <보그> 커버에 서 줄 것을 제안했습니다. 함께 찍은 셀피를 보내오며 단번에 시작된 우리의 이야기는 지극히 개인적이지만, 코코의 말대로 꽤 공적인 메시지도 담고 있습니다. 알고 보아도, 모르고 보아도 괜찮습니다. 사랑은 사진 속에서도 숨길 수 없이 빛나고 아름다우니까요. 서울의 한 고택 안으로 날아선 푸른 눈의 젊은 예술가들의 낭만과 청춘, 이 순간을 그대로 기록한 <보그> 1월호를 기대해주세요! (✍🏻Gukhwa Hong) _ EDITOR/GUKHWA HONG PHOTOGRAPHER/COCO CAPITAN MAKE-UP/JOYEON WON HAIR/HYUNJIN KANG PRODUCTION/AARON CHO (sketchedSPACE) _ Last summer, We called Coco who was traveling in Tokyo after finishing up her Seoul schedule. Before she was heading to London, we offered her to stay in Seoul for a day and to stand in front of our camera for our cover shoot, with her most meaningful partner Frances. Our story, which started with a selfie of her’s is very personal, but it contains a strong social message, just as how Coco stated on her sns. It doesn’t matter whether you feel it or not. Nobody can hide their bright beautiful love showing through the picture. Stay tuned for the romance and youth of the young blue-eyed artists in an old residence in Seoul, and for the January issue of Vogue Korea! #古驰 #时尚 #封面

Το συνοδευτικό κείμενο του εξωφύλλου σημειώνει: «Το περασμένο καλοκαίρι καλέσαμε την Coco, που ταξίδευε στο Τόκιο αφού ολοκλήρωσε το πρόγραμμα της Σεούλ.

Πριν πάει στο Λονδίνο, της προσφέρημε να παραμείνει στη Σεούλ για μια μέρα και να σταθεί μπροστά από τη φωτογραφική μηχανή μας με την αγαπημένη της σύντροφο Frances.

Η ιστορία μας, η οποία ξεκίνησε με μία selfie της είναι πολύ προσωπική, αλλά περιέχει ένα ισχυρό κοινωνικό μήνυμα, όπως δήλωσε και η Coco.

Δεν έχει σημασία αν το νιώθεις ή όχι. Γιατί πολύ απλά δεν μπορείς να κρύψεις την όμορφη αγάπη τους στην εικόνα.»

About to go to bed in the closet in Woon-kyung Residence, Seoul for @voguekorea January cover. I dislike getting too personal in social networks, but I thought it important to mention that this one of the very first covers to ever feature a gay couple in the South Korean mass media and I am incredibly grateful to @voguekorea for allowing me to appear as I am, next to @franceswilks who's part of who I am and what I stand for. Thank you as well to @gucci for taking as a responsibility to support, dress and represent all parts of the gender and sexual orientation spectrum. Thank you @sketchedspaceseoul & @creativeexchangeagency for being my voice in Seoul and always taking care of us. And thank you @franceswilks for making sure that my days are mostly full of fun, respect and love #gaysingucci
