“To the world at large, Vogue is fashion and Apple is tech,” Nicola Fumo and Kwame Opam report for Racked. ” Each represents the premium in their space: Vogue with over a century in print and access to A-list everyone, Apple with the slickest must-have gadgets on the planet. Whether we subscribe to the magazine or own an Apple device personally is moot — they’re mega-brands with mega-influence.”
“The two have united this year to produce the annual spring Costume Institute exhibit and its corresponding over-the-top event, the red carpet blowout known as the Met Gala,” Fumo and Kwame Opam report. “The exhibit, ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,’ loosely covers the intersection of both industries. What a marriage.”
“This year’s benefit — taking place Monday, May 2nd — is co-chaired by Taylor Swift,” Fumo and Kwame Opam report. “There is nobody who would make a better ring bearer: Swift is the face of both Apple Music and Vogue’s March 2016 issue. Nothing is an accident.”
