Vogue, June 15, 1928

One of the most iconic fashion magazines of all time, Vogue, is not new to the game. Founded in 1892, Vogue has sealed its place in history as one of the big names in the fashion world.

Today, I am sharing a copy of Vogue Magazine from June 15, 1928!

Vogue, June 15, 1928. Full flip through of magazine. Please follow Peruse Vintage on Youtube for more vintage content!

The cover features beautiful artwork of a woman in a pastel outfit, looking at a boat and some palm trees. Vogue did not feature photographs on the cover until 1932.

Vogue actually began as a magazine for upper class men, mainly highlighting aspects of social life. The now infamous Conde Nast took over the publication in 1905, and it was re-geared toward women (Source).

This issue, from June 15, 1928, celebrates the start of summer. It features a nice spread on travel, including luggage and packing tips. Oh my gosh, I am just in love with luggage from this period! It is all so functional yet stylish. Oh, to pack a steamer trunk full of my finest gowns for a trip to the islands via steam boat.

I also enjoy seeing elements in the magazine that have become obsolete today. For example, there is a multi-page spread about the latest information on socialites- births, deaths, engagements, etc.

Overall, this is a great issue, especially for those interested in 1920s fashion. There are some great ads as well, from familiar brands and others lost to time.

If there are any images from the flip through that I did not include but you would like to see, please feel free to send me a comment or email and I will get back to you with it!

Enjoy this little glimpse into the 1920s world of fashion!
