Olivier Rizzo Takes on AnOther
For AnOther Magazine‘s twenty-fifth issue, Jefferson Hack, the founder of Dazed Publishing Group, has tapped renowned Belgian stylist Olivier Rizzo as the guest editor of the British culture and fashion biannual. Centering on the ideas of travel and transformation, Rizzo brought a rich texture, wit, and sense of performance to his three shoots with photographers Willy Vanderperre (whose images are pictured here) and Alasdair McLellan. “Guest-editing the well of AnOther Magazine was fantastic,” Rizzo told Style.com. “Jefferson, [creative director] David James, and I have a long-standing, close relationship in the magazine, where the mutual respect and support leads to total creative freedom.” For the cover, he styled actress Cate Blanchett in the midst of a decadent night garden, channeling the theatricality of new-wave Berlin. Hailing from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Rizzo has some pretty serious styling cred: He’s done Prada’s shows since 2006, as well as the runways of Jil Sander and Louis Vuitton, and the campaigns for Raf Simons and Dior. Furthermore, he’s known for working with photographers such as Paolo Roversi, Steven Meisel, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Craig McDean, and Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin for publications such as Vogue Italia, W, i-D, Fantastic Man, Love, and Vogue Hommes International.
