Guest Creative Directors: They’re Everywhere!

The Guardian reports that Karl Lagerfeld and Philippe Starck have each designed covers for the latest issue Wallpaper* — and will be guest editing the October issue.

Lagerfeld has designed a “peelable” cover for the monthly title, which features model Baptiste Giabiconi, dressed in Dior Homme. Lagerfeld has shot several ad campaigns for Dior. Readers can peel back this image to reveal another cover, which shows the model naked.

Starck, best known for designing high-end hotels, including the St Martin’s Lane hotel in London and the Delano in Miami, has constructed a transparent front cover using three layers of tracing paper. Vodka brand Absolut has produced a specially made advertisement for the issue, which promotes its “Rock edition” bottle.

Wallpaper* claims the paper technologies used by the design duo have never before been used on magazine covers.

Lagerfeld is also one of three guest editors (along with Bruce Weber and Peter Lindbergh) for German Vogue’s 30th anniversary edition next month, per WWD. If you could guest creative-direct or edit any title, what would it be?
