In the News stand in April, The house of Franca Sozzani in Marrakech. AD Russia Franca Sozzani is the director of Vogue Italy. She is to me the greatest editor in the world today and some sort of a Goddess in my pantheon. The house is beyond the beyond and some may even find it horrid. But this house has nothing to do with decoration or taste or at least bourgeois taste. It is the secret abode of the Empress of Fashion, her dark and intoxicated empire built with shade and veils around her frail silhouette. A kick in the ass of taste. Healthy ! Let me introduce Sophie Djerlal, journalist at Vogue Italy, a great friend and my favorite working partner. AD Russia is the first to publish this feature, my way to thank Eugenia Mikulina, the editor in chief, who is with all her team, such a lovely person to work with.
