The Animal Issue: Vogue Italia Presents an Issue Dedicated to The Beauty of The Animal World

According to Emanuele Farneti, the editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia and L’Uomo Vogue: “Like this time last year, we have decided to dedicate the January issue to the environment, once again coinciding with the publication of the charter of values signed by the editors-in-chief of Vogue from all over the world.”

“This time we wanted to let animals take over our physical and digital space. It is an invitation to refocus on the natural world after months spent at home, drawing our attention back to the environmental emergency that has been made no less urgent by the tragedy of the pandemic, and highlighting a lesson from the year that has just ended: quite simply, that the world does not revolve around humans.”

“Starting with the rich set of covers, we chose not to offer a consoling and domestic image of natural life. Instead, our portrayal is as plural as possible. And when necessary it’s disquieting, sometimes even threatening. This issue of lambs and wolves, of panthers and mice challenges the illusion of an anthropocentric world, as in the moral fable on this issue and in the many reports and stories that unfold page after page. Animals do not exist for our purpose, nor as a function of what we would like them to be. It is almost too simple to stress how much we’ve been reminded of this by the effects of coronavirus, by the way it came into existence and how it has impacted our lives, freeing up spaces that wildlife has at least temporarily reclaimed for itself. And it seems almost too obvious that the fashion industry, like any other economic activity, must ask itself where the limits lie in the exploitation of natural resources, and what prospects are offered by technological progress.”

“After all, at this turning point in our age, it’s worth remembering that throughout history our efforts to understand and define ourselves as humans have always been closely bound to the way we see and depict animals – from rock carvings to ancient bestiaries, from the development of the arts and sciences to legends of every latitude and cabinets of curiosities, right down to the riot of puppies and fanciful digital creatures on social media. In our decisions affecting the future of the planet, animals will be the first and only judges called on to deliver the verdict.

As an age-old Asian proverb says, the true measure of a mountain’s greatness is not its height, but whether it is sufficiently enchanting to attract dragons.”

Sure they could use a kitchen knife to slice the poo in half in order to flush it down the pipes, but why dirty a kitchen tool in such a way when there’s a designated tool out there to get the job done? This useful tool is specifically made for slicing your discharge in half for a proper flush! Made with a strong metal core that’s surrounded with hygienic silicone for easy slicing and cleaning, Poop Knife will allow you to be a samurai to your poo-poo platter.

The poop knife measures 9.8 inches (25 cm) long, and has a handle on one end, and a soft blade on the other end of it for slicing your dung. Just be sure not to confuse which side is which before using. They also state that the poop knife is long enough to keep your hand clear of all danger in a standard depth toilet.

In their own words: “Original Poop Knife will chop the most compacted of brownies, the most seasoned of sausages, the hardwood of butt logs, the longest of sewer snakes, the most ferocious of bog crocodiles, and the fattest of heaved Havanas.”
