The coun­try of be­guil­ing con­trasts, pre­ci­sion and per­fec­tion has long ig­nited the imag­i­na­tion of Vogue. Ital­ian pho­tog­ra­pher Franco Rubartelli whisked model (and then part­ner) Ver­uschka to Ja­pan where they ram­bled from Lake Akan in the north­ern is­land of Hokkaido down to the his­toric cap­i­tal of Ky­oto. Aus­tralian de­sign­ers were in­cor­po­rated into the shoot, from Syd­ney de­signer Trent Nathan to Mel­bourne stal­warts like Ninette and Norma Tullo, which Ver­uschka wears here.
