Stock library Getty Images has announced that it will launch 'Collection Vogue Paris' on June 17, comprising 80 years of fashion and beauty images from the style bible.
‘Collection Vogue Paris’ will be available via the Getty Web site and will feature images taken by some of the longest-standing and most widely respected photographers working for French Vogue, including Hans Feurer, Jean-Daniel Lorieux, Thierry Le Goues, and Henry Clarke. The fashion, lifestyle and portrait images encapsulate modern-day glamour, from the first and most prestigious title of the Vogue group.
The collection, which spans from 1926, includes images featuring fashion by designers such as Dior, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Van Cleef and Arpels.
Adrian Murrell, senior vice president, Editorial, Getty Images, said: “Customer demand and interest in high-end haute couture imagery is continuing to grow and we are thrilled to be able to represent this iconic collection of imagery from the world’s foremost fashion magazine in our archival collection. French Vogue is synonymous with high fashion and has not only shaped the fashions of the 20th Century, but perfectly encapsulated the style of each era in its unique and unrivalled fashion spreads.”
Xavier Romatet, CEO of Condé Nast France said: “We are very excited to make our stunning collection of images available for the first time via such a prestigious platform as Getty Images. This partnership will enable Vogue Paris to benefit from its images being alongside the world's best and broadest imagery collections.”
Members of Getty Images’ Hulton Archive and Contour team spent two weeks in Paris, working in collaboration with Vogue Paris scanning, editing and helping to caption the images. The collection is made up of unique content, most of which has never before been licensed.
