A Movie-Like Art Book
Gucci debuts a limited edition “Disturbia” art book by artist Peter Schlesinger. Only 1000 copies go out to the world
Who can take a look book for a pre-fall 2018 collection and turn it into an art publication, highly sought after among fashionistas? We know the answer. Gucci’s relationship with a New York artist Peter Schlesinger, who, perhaps is the most well known for appearing in numerous canvases by the British painter David Hockney, dates a couple years back. This year, the brand asked the artist to make a photoshoot, in the spirit of the cult Italian auteur Dario Argento, according to Vogue. And the best images do look like the stills from the movie, inhabited by models who are not mainstream in terms of their beauty, donning the creations of Alessandro Michele.
The extra images, shot alongside the women’s and men’s collections lookbooks, went into a new book Disturbia, that will be distributed by a London-based independent publisher IDEA and sold at selected stores and online.
谁能在2018年秋季前的收藏中找到一本书，并把它变成一本艺术刊物，并且能在时尚达人中备受追捧？我们知道答案。Gucci与这位纽约艺术家Peter Schlesinger的关系可以追溯到几年前，其是英国画家David Hockney众多油画作品中出现的最著名的人物。据Vogue报道，今年该品牌邀请艺术家根据意大利导演Dario Argento的精神，拍摄照片。 最好图像看起来就像电影中的剧照，吸引人的也不是模特的美丽，而是穿着的Alessandro Michele的作品。
