As the creator and photorapher, Karl managed to emphasize “a modern version of sophisticated dressing” with the help of his muse Baptise Giambiconi and latest amazement in fashion stage Saskia de Brauw. Saskia having already a French Vogue cover in her record, she hits the lookbook with androgynous charm and softness forming male – female ambiguous couple with Baptiste.

The 60th issue of an exclusive magazine Visionaire will be curated by Riccardo Tisci from Givenchy what heralds exceptionally spiritual edition with models as saints and sinners from biblical stories. As the main theme is framed in Religion, all aspects of faith will be shown from fashion point of view gathering high end fashion artists and contributors like Mario Sorrenti, Franca Sozzani, Lea T, Karl Lagerfeld, Giovanna Battaglia, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Lara Stone, and  many more . Tisci believes that Religion has become more universal and amorphous. “It is the mother, the family, it’s love, it’s work, it’s abstract,”.
