Exclusive: Visionaire 60 By Riccardo Tisci

-------

As if it wasn’t enough to design women’s, men’s, and couture, not to mention land one of the biggest Oscars gets of them all in Cate Blanchett, not to mention maintaining the front-runner position in the who-will-replace-Galliano-at-Dior guessing game, Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci has revealed exclusively to Style.com that he’s collaborated with Visionaire on its 60th issue. The topic? Only Tisci’s favorite, of course: religion. The designer curated the entire issue, and all of the work was specially commissioned for the project with the exception of two photographs by Robert Mapplethorpe. Tisci’s one stipulation to his collaborators: no Givenchy credits. Among the contributions, Karl Lagerfeld photographed Carine Roitfeld, Paolo Canevari envisioned Franca Sozzani as a saint, and Givaudan perfumer Yann Vasnier created a Religion scent. Tisci’s proudest achievements: convincing Helmut Lang to participate—”he’s my god,” says the designer—and working on a project with the performance artist Marina Abramović, whom he calls his mother. “Any religion, it’s like a family,” he said. And he means it. The limited-edition issue is a leather-wrapped 228-page hardbound book complete with a case inspired by a church altarpiece. It will be released in June and retail for $425 at select bookstores worldwide and at Givenchy flagship stores.
