Vogue Singapore Issue 1

Three covers and thus three different models for the very first issue of Vogue Singapore, ‘Arise’, bound to become a collectable item. Singaporean model Diya Prabhakar, Chinese model Ju Xiaowen and Japanese actress Nana Komatsu have been chosen for this inaugural edition.

From Vogue Singapore: ‘To complete the triptych of covers is Komatsu, shot on film by Fish Zhang* in a hotel in Tokyo via Zoom. Her latest movie Threads—Our Tapestry of Love was filmed in Singapore last year. She speaks about a poignant scene in the movie, where a mother tells a little girl to be considerate to others and to hug anyone who is feeling sad. In a post-pandemic world, Komatsu hopes that we can move towards a kinder world where people can physically express their love for one another. “It made me realise more than ever how important human connection is,” Komatsu says.’ (from the featured article written by Amelia Chia)
