"I knew I wanted to do something different. I wanted to disrupt this industry. I wanted to show what Scandinavia and the Nordics can offer." - Martina Bonnier, editor in chief of Vogue Scandinavia
In August 2021, Vogue Scandinavia was born. With Greta Thunberg as our inaugural cover star, it was a disruptive beginning which set the bar high and made our intentions clear. Ever since then, there's never been a dull moment. The last twelve months have been an exciting and meaningful journey, as we told the stories of the Nordics through our digital-first platform and our timeless, limited-edition print magazine. Together, we have introduced Scandinavia, and international friends, to our top calibre content and sustainable mission. Thank you for being a part of that journey.
Now, we invite you to explore the world of Vogue Scandinavia's special anniversary Aug - Sept edition. For this issue, we wanted to – in the words of editor in chief Martina Bonnier – "celebrate our love of nature in much the same way we did with our debut".
From capturing loved-up actor Joel Kinnaman and model Kelly Gale in their home in the Swedish countryside, to the launch of our Vogue Square biodiversity campaign, to the far-flung north of the Arctic Circle with virtuoso violinist Eldbjorg Hemsing, issue 7 is one which truly celebrates our Scandinavian DNA and surroundings.
Thank you for supporting us through this first year – it is because of you that we get to continue to tell the stories of the Nordics. We look forward to continuing this journey together for many years to come.
For a coffee table keepsake to treasure, secure our special Collector’s Anniversary Edition, covered in beautiful Svenskt Tenn 'Baranquilla' fabric.
