We enter a new year with a new found energy and a vision to make the most of everything. Here we celebrate this motto with our first ever online exclusive beauty editorial

2021 was definitely ‘a year’. We can only imagine how historians will manage to tell the story — boy, they’re going to have a blast. Nonetheless, in the middle of everything, we’ve seen moments of light and joy that have pulled us through.


First of all, we came to be. It’s not every day, year or even decade, that a new Vogue is born (pretty impressive right?). In the middle of a pandemic we not only managed to successfully launch but also to connect with a completely new audience and showcase the wonders and talents of Nordic fashion, beauty and culture to the world. Something that we clearly couldn’t have done without the support from you — our readers, partners and contributors.
