finalist best ‘fashion 2007’
From W: This was the magazines first annual Art Issue, and its brightly hued, delightfully ethereal cover brings fashion to life against an eye-popping backdrop. A collaboration between world-class artist Richard Tuttle and photographer Mario Sorrenti, the postminimalist image depicts a model striking a graceful pose in a goddess-worthy Miu Miu dress layered unexpectedly over one of the labels sporty T-shirts. There has been much lip service given to the art-fashion connection in recent years, but this cover represents a true convergence of the two visual realms. Taken from a 30-page portfolio inside the magazine entitled Eden, the cover was inspired in part by the documentary Ballets Russes.
