IN HIS LATEST EDITORIAL, PHOTOGRAPHY ARTIST STEFAN MARCEL GERARD EXPLORES the archetype of the Versace Lover. The editorial, inspired by the title of the Italo Disco soundtrack of the late '80s, explores play and sensual pleasure. Here, silk meets slick, print meets print, and Dolce meets Vita.
The Versace lover lives in the moment, constantly on the spectrum between pleasure and pain. When do earthly pleasures become pain, and more importantly, when does pain become heavenly pleasure?
HERE, SILK MEETS SLICK, PRINT MEETS PRINT, AND DOLCE MEETS VITA.
WHEN DO EARTHLY PLEASURES BECOME PAIN, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, WHEN DOES PAIN BECOME HEAVENLY PLEASURE?
