Vogue U.K. goos for a local reset on the August cover. And amazingly the theme is nature; not fashion.
Vogue recently collaborated with some of the most renowned artists and photographers in the U.K. to create their August 2020 covers. The magazine covers explore the idea of what it means to ‘reset’. Each cover design features a local landscape from each creator. A landscape not fashion! and local.
And now tourism is following thanks to Corona. Given that the summer holidays are happening now, we need to go to a local destination because of restrictions. This doubles up on the idea that we are opening our eyes to our local environments, now that travel is limited, and has been for a while.The simpler things that are local to us are being reloved.

The World After published a local perfume concept for international high end businesses in Report 020 Local Perfumes The local cosmetic concept of report 020 applies to every kind of product.
In the food industry, a trend in local production and local recipes was already underway. Spotted often in high end and vegan restaurants. In for example France and Italy local has been always appreciated. So in the end local is nothing new..
Internet and digitalisation also gave us the opportunity to redirect and relocate traditional large scale production to local producers. This way, we can downscale production and move it closer, right next to where our consumers are living. We discuss this complex story in greater detail in Report 009 - 3D Print UP
