I am so delighted to announce the publication of “A Magazine Curated By Alessandro Michele”. It is such an honor to be asked to contribute by GUCCI‘s creative director Alessandro Michele. A MAGAZINE CURATED BY is a Paris-based bi-annual fashion and art magazine which invites designers and fashion houses to curate an issue as the guest editor. Alessandro Michele’s issue is breathtaking in its romanticism―”Blind for Love” is the overarching theme. I am immensely grateful to be in the company of all the other contributors. It is a beautiful book full of the eclectic images―from 17th C. English portraiture, John Currin’s paintings, Cindy Sherman’s film stills series to Unskilled Worker’s contemporary portrait of Edward and Wallis Simpson―and writings―an excerpt from Fanny de Beauharnais’ 18th Century “L’Aveugle Par Amour”, a letter from Capt. Wentworth to Anne Elliott from Jane Austen’s Persuasion, “Song” by Florence Welch―which have inspired Michele for his recent collections.
