For the American record label, see Vogue Records.

Disques Vogue was a record company founded in France in 1947, by Léon Cabat and Charles Delaunay[1] the year after the USA Vogue ceased. They originally specialized in jazz recordings, featuring such artists as Sidney Bechet, Django Reinhardt, Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, and Erroll Garner. In the late 1950s Vogue expanded into pop music, recording artists such as Petula Clark. In the 1960s and early 1970s the label boasted Jacques Dutronc and Françoise Hardy. They later licensed recordings by ABBA for release in Belgium and France.

A British offshoot was founded in 1951 and absorbed by English Decca (then separate from the American company) around 1956, but the rights to the name reverted to the French parent in 1962. A new sister label was established in Britain as part of the Pye Group.[1] The label's catalogue is now part of Sony Music.
