Since 1991 Visionaire has pioneered the limited edition – bridging the worlds of art, fashion and design to create original and exclusive publications in all shapes and sizes. Different themes and formats are driven by each issue’s artistic direction that have included boxed, bagged and even audio presentations.
Inside Mr Porter's online closet is a selection of Visionaire’s highly collectible publications over the years that include issues by Hedi Slimane, Ricardo Tisci, Levi’s and Louis Vuitton. In 2000, Jean-Louis Dumas, President of Hermès created Issue 32 titled, Where?
Inspired by Dumas’s very own travel sketchbook, Where? takes the form of fifty-five silver-edged postcards with images contributed by international artists and photographers such as Andreas Gursky, Wolfgang Tillmans, Bruce Weber, David LaChapelle and Jeff Burton. The collection are presented in none other than a soft, tan leather pouch crafted in the workshop of the French luxury house in Paris.
An edition of 3500 numbered copies were produced and provide an alternative to the holiday postcard as well as a charming contemporary statement in an ever diminishing world of pen to paper correspondence. Whether it is from your private island or urban retreat these art postcards will guarantee best wishes for both sender and recipient par avion.Visit Visionaire to view their avant-garde series of issues to date.
