Maurizio Cattelan's Toilet Paper magazine was never meant to be a conventional glossy. Its images, which Cattelan edits and puts together with the Italian commercial photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari, are meant to resemble the emotive side of great advertising images, while maintaining a certain surrealist bite - and not actually selling anything.
Yet the French-Japanese fashion house Kenzo managed to convince Toilet Paper to produce its Autumn/Winter campaign and the results have been deemed a great success. Industry bellwether, The Business of Fashion, voted the Cattelan/Kenzo collaboration top of its 2013 Autumn/Winter campaign poll, citing the neat marriage of Kenzo's "signature quirk" of "technicolour, pop art and surrealism" with Toilet Paper's own acerbic style.
We think it's a winning combination too. Take a look at the full story here, and, if you're keen to see more of Cattelan's uncanny imagery, please take a look at our book.
