Visionaire 52 Private

visionaire 52

For the third issue of Visionaire sponsored by Louis Vuitton, photographers Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott — known for their relentlessly glossy imagery — presented a series of work that was decidedly more gritty. PRIVATE sought to capture fleeting, intimate moments with celebrities and supermodels like Lindsay Lohan, Gisele Bündchen, Marc Jacobs, Drew Barrymore, Naomi Campbell, Chloë Sevigny. And the new It Boy, Jamie Dornan.



ImageSomewhere along in the process, the clothes happened to come off, making for rare, risqué, uncalculated photographs of some of the most famous people in the world. Shot on closed sets on which only the subjects and the two photographers were present, PRIVATE showcased Mert & Marcus’s uncanny ability to show men and women not just at their sexiest and most jaw-droppingly gorgeous, but also at their most intensely personal. Available now, $1500

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
