OK — time to give major props to Glenda Bailey and the smarties at Harper’s Bazaar. What other magazine could get a group of major fashion designers to agree to have themselves painted into invisibility against a backdrop of their work? Oh, your interest has been piqued? Read on.
The magazine, which just underwent a huge redesign for its March issue, collaborated with Chinese artist Liu Bolin on a series of images in which designers like Lanvin‘s Alber Elbaz and Angela Missoni are covered in paint so that they fade into the background of the very clothing they’ve created. (Bolin normally paints himself into his own pictures, but we imagine it must have been a cool change for him to work with other artists.)
Take a look at a few of the images below. If you want to see them all, you’ll either have to pick up the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar or click here to see them online.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
