YORGOS LANTHIMOS. THE DIRECTOR OF THE LOBSTER AND THE FAVOURITE IS THE AUTHOR / AUTEUR OF THE NEW SUPER ALREADY GUCCI BOOK OVIPARITY. HIGHLY IDIOSYNCRATIC (NOT LEAST IN THE SLIPCASE THAT DOESN'T SHUT). IT IS QUITE UNUSUALLY GOOD.
Don't mind the gap. The slipcase is never closed. The most distinctly distinctive book of 2019 is here.
The darkest / light. Yorgos staged and photographed this fashion film fantasia at the Leda Gallery of Villa Albani Torlonia in Rome. Built in 1747 by Carlo Marchionni the gallery was a cultural powerhouse, hosting discussions, concerts, dances and masked comedies. It held an exceptional collection of original Greek and Roman sculptures.
In the Lanthimos vision, those sculptures and statues come to life and occupy the space with the Gucci clad models.
And interract with the models.
And look up their skirts.
It's a remarkable book in what has been a remarkable series of Gucci books. Copies have arrived already at Dover Street Market London, LA, New York and Ginza. And now it is here in the London office. In stock. On hand. Ready to ship.
