22 CHIC marks 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 includes 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.
