Angelina Jolie is Vogue’s new digital cover star
The October digital cover of Vogue has landed, with Angelina Jolie starring in an Annie Leibovitz-lensed editorial to showcase what she has up her sleeve for Atelier Jolie. Alongside the shoot, styled by Tabitha Simmons, Jolie tells Chioma Nnadi about what to expect from the forthcoming project, which will be housed in a retail space at the iconic 57 Great Jones Street; a Noho address most associated with former artists-in-residence Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Jolie doesn’t just give the publication a physical tour, but a no-holds-barred, access-all-areas insight into the impetus for the venture. Opening in November, Atelier Jolie will be a multi-purpose destination spread out over two floors, comprising of tailors, artisans, a café, and more. Custom pieces will be available made to measure, while repair services will begin at as little as $10. In the feature, Jolie also reveals what’s to come with her collaboration with Chloé; the world’s first luxury brand to achieve B-Corp status. The capsule, which is inspired by Jolie and Gabriela Hearst’s mothers, will include a floor-length velvet cape, a crochet smock handmade by the craftspeople at the Paris-based organization La Fabrique Nomade which works with refugees, and nude slip dresses that match a broad range of skin tones—with 84% of the collection featuring sustainable and ethical materials.
