Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari and Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo FerrariAfter Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan paired with photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari for W Magazine’s 2009 Art Issue, the couple decided to continue the collaboration, founding ToiletPaper Magazine the following year. Under the art direction of Micol Talso, the biannual ToiletPaper magazine is entirely image-based, comprised of surreal, technicolor imagery. In 2013, Kenzo’s creative directors, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, enlisted the threesome behind ToiletPaper to produce the brand’s FW campaign. The partnership resulted in a series of pop-art-meets-surreal advertisements in the same aesthetic as the biannual magazine. One ad in particular bears significant semblance to an image published in ToiletPaper‘s January 2011 issue.
