Franca Sozzani, the editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia, passed away yesterday after a year of struggling with a sickness.

28 years ago, she became the editor-in-chief of quite forgotten and dusty Italian edition of Vogue, bringing pulsing energy, erotic seduction and provoking ideas to the again desired pages. Throughout her career, Sozzani invited cult photograohers and stylists, like Tim Walker, Steven Meisel, Joe McKenna or Paolo Roversi, to work on the editorials, and most of all, the non-chalant, yet refined image of Italian Vogue. She was often called the “gold-mine of creativity”, for a reason.

Let’s look back at small part of archival shots and editorials that were done under Sozzani.
