Vanity Fair Magazine Skyline Sketch – New York – London – Milan – Paris
Vanity Fair Magazine France got in touch to commission a map illustration for their new fashion magazine article. The brief was to draw the well-known fashion capital cities that represents the first skyline of New York and London, the second skyline of Paris and Milan to illustrate what is the most emblematic of each city, some elements that are essential to the brief and must be included into the illustration:
New York: Skyscrapers, Union Station, Statue of Liberty, a yellow cab, Building from Soho
London: The London Eye, Big Ben, the Euro Star, The Gherkin, The Shard
Paris: The Arc De Triumph, Eiffel tower, a tramway train,
Milan: Doumo, Cova patisserie shop, a Vespa, maybe a Trattoria…
There is always an iconic well-known means of transport in each city the yellow cab for New York, The euro star for London, The Tram for Paris, and A Vespa Scooter for Milan, to indicate the journey between the different destinations The idea of the article is the red dominant colour of the fashion shows. The illustrations would be mainly in black and white, only with some colour spots.
