The current brand ambassador of luxe tanning brand St. Tropez looks like a photogenic robot on the latest cover from Visionaire magazine.
The world record-breaking and highly collectible publication takes another step along the path to immortality with Forever. Conceived with the support of G-Shock, makers of “the watch that never breaks,” this inkless and paperless issue of the magazine takes the durable capabilities of high-performance, weather-resistant gadgetry and applies them to the medium of the art and fashion image. Complete with an all-metal case that acts as a frame, the issue consists of ten embossed “pages” by artists including Inez & Vinoodh, Craig McDean, Yoko Ono, Richard Avedon, Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari. Working with CGI artists, Visionaire has transformed two-dimensional photographs into three-dimensional reliefs, which were then pounded into 9 x 12” embossed metal plates. With this new issue, Visionaire can proudly claim to have produced the first publication to be made entirely of metal.
