Each year W‘s art issue overflows with creative energy, merging the worlds of fashion and art into one and enlisting some of the most innovative talents in both fields for truly imaginative editorials. This year sculptor Maurizio Cattelan conceives an emotionally charged story shot by Pierpaolo Ferrari and staring the legendary Linda Evangelista as an enigmatic woman of our times. Mixing political and religious imagery with arresting shots of Linda as a gilded Madonna and fallen society dame, the story stands out as one of the most compelling in a long while. The artistry behind this story is evident on all levels from Camilla Nickerson‘s distinctive styling to Gideon Ponte‘s intricate sets. Even the cover, which hints at the recession crunch with a knowing wink, is as memorable and evocative an image as W has ever produced. View the story in full on W Magazine.com
