Ah, Visionaire. You’ve smelled it. You’ve tasted it. And, thanks to the next issue of the limited edition fashion/art sensorial feast, you’ll soon be able to wear it—ostensibly while playing a sport. Visionaire #54 is entitled “sport” and consists of a suitcase book with three photographically-printed, artist-designed Lacoste polo shirts embedded within its dozen pages, which feature images of all of the commissioned shirt designs. The issue comes in four different three-shirt sets, kind of like sports teams! The “team” whose shirts are featured at left are the genre-bending megastars (shirts pictured from top) Michael Stipe, Karl Lagerfeld (who looks to have taken the Lacoste link literally), and Nick Knight. Team two is more international, with a strong Euro vibe, featuring shirts designed by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin with M/M (Paris), Thomas Demand, and David Byrne. We’d call the third team the “artists’ artists,” as it consists of Peter Lindbergh, Thomas Ruff, and Pedro Almodovar. Rounding out the dozen is Richard Phillips (whose shirt is a tight shot of model Coca Rocha‘s creamy visage), T.J. Wilcox, and Phil Poynter. Visionaire and Lacoste (now celebrating its 75th anniversary) will debut the shirts tomorrow at a party in Paris, where haute couture week began today.
