Visionaire 22: Mario Testino Chic
no. 4946/5000 numbered copiesx
Mario Testino (Ed.), Stephen Gan, Cecilia Dean, James Kaliardos
22 CHIC marked the collaboration with guest Mario Testino. A scrapbook of chic based on Testino’s idea that “chic between people finds its ultimate expression in collaboration.” Accordingly, almost every image is the collaboration of two or more artists: Richard Avedon and Gianni Versace; Helmut Lang and Elfie Semotan; Wolfgang Tillmans, Kate Moss and Camilla Nickerson; and David Sims and Melanie Ward, among others. Each of the 5,000 issues includes an actual piece of the Versace dress Madonna wore to the Evita premiere, a Paloma Picasso lipstick imprint on a cocktail napkin, a letter from Catherine Deneuve to Yves Saint Laurent, and swatches of fabric from Pucci, Missoni, Paul Smith, and Solstiss.
