It seems like forever ago that Condé Nast first announced its plan to move Vogue, along with its other publications, from the company's longtime 4 Times Square headquarters to a new home in Lower Manhattan's 1 World Trade Center. Now, more than four years later, the day has finally arrived. And, at Vogue, it was anything but your average relocation situation.
In an Instagram diary on Vogue.com, the magazine's editors and fashion friends like Tabitha Simmons shared some of their best office-moving-day highlights. Between mini-photoshoots on stacks of crates, elevator shots of André Leon Talley hauling his stuff downstairs, and a final glimpse at the iconic Vogue entranceway, leave it to these staffers to somehow make packing up look chic. (Not to mention oddly nostalgic.)
The most quintessential Vogue moment of them all? Market editor Emma Elwick-Bates’ snap of a moving container stocked with Hermès boxes in an identical shade of bright orange. It’s telling proof: Even though the publication might be moving downtown, don't worry — it's not going downmarket anytime soon.
