Visionaire 22 CHIC (1997). Numbered out of 5000 editions. Magazine/Art Portfolio/Folio. 30cm x 23cm (approx 12in x 8.5 in). As described by Visionaire: Chic marked our second collaboration with a guest editor, this time Mario Testino. Together we assembled a scrapbook of chic based on Testino's idea that ''chic between people finds its ultimate expression in collaboration.'' Accordingly, almost every image is the collaboration of two or more artists: Richard Avedon and Gianni Versace; Helmut Lang and Elfie Semotan; Wolfgang Tillmans, Kate Moss and Camilla Nickerson; and David Sims and Melanie Ward, among others. Each of the 5,000 issues included an actual piece of the Versace dress Madonna wore to the Evita premiere, a Paloma Picasso lipstick imprint on a cocktail napkin, a letter from Catherine Deneuve to Yves Saint Laurent, and swatches of fabric from Pucci, Missoni, Paul Smith, and Solstiss. And we did our first double launch, at Maxim's in New York and at Pavillon Ledoyen in Paris, which was our first event abroad.
