60 VISIONAIRE SIXTY RELIGION - GUEST EDITED BY RICARDO TISCI - GIVENCHY - JUNE 2011
We are pleased to announce the release of VISIONAIRE SIXTY RELIGION, Guest Edited by Riccardo Tisci in collaboration with Givenchy. “Visionaire Sixty Religion was a truly important moment of reflection for me,” Riccardo says. “Made, in my mind, by some of the most important creative forces of our moment and some of the people I love the most, this collection of work celebrates religion, inner truths, inner dialogues, moments which words cannot quantify.”
Stephen Gan, Cecilia Dean, and James Kaliardos felt that the collaboration was a particularly invigorating one: “Working together with Riccardo and experiencing his process reminded us of the energy and charge we felt when we first conceived of Visionaire, and why we continue to create a publication that is evolving, experimenting, and transforming.”
RELIGION is Tisci’s meditation on the theme of “religion” as depicted by photos and art commissioned and curated by Tisci specially for this issue. Images are featured in black and white with gold pages. Independent of any divination, the issue’s theme draws inspiration from “religion” as a synonym for obsession, ritual, worship, apparition, and the celebration of humanity.
Visionaire Sixty Religion comes as a leather-wrapped 228-page hard- bound book. Inspired by a church altar piece, the case’s split doors open to reveal the black-on-black stamped book cover inside a black plexiglass lined interior. Contributors to Visionaire 60 include Marina Abramovic, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Lara Stone, Paolo Canevari, Franca Sozzani, Karl Lagerfeld, Carine Roitfeld, Berlinde de Bruyckere, Mario Testino, Jefferson Hack, Patti Smith, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Nick Knight, Katy England, Kate Moss, Yann Vasnier, and many many more.
The limited edition offering will be on sale June 2011. For more information, stay tuned to
