Garage, the new fashion magazine created by Dasha Zhukova, is already making waves, even as its debut issue has yet to hit newsstands. It is the first issue, in fact, that has people talking. More specifically, it’s the three different covers, the most provocative of which sports a Hedi Slimane photograph of the lower half of a nude model, strategically covered with a peel-away butterfly sticker designed by Damien Hirst (the concept is modeled after Andy Warhol’s removable banana sticker from the landmark album Velvet Underground & Nico). Another version of the cover features a smiley face drawn by Richard Prince that bears a suspicious resemblance to the Kool-Aid Man, while the other is a Nick Knight photograph of a gothic doll house created by Dinos Chapman. Aside from the high-profile artists commissioned for the cover art, the magazine has a compelling handmade quality that sets it apart from its glossy, digitally designed competitors. Look for the inaugural issue to be published during New York’s Fashion Week. Images of the three planned covers follow the jump.
