Photographer Maurizio Cattelan, art director Mico and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari make up 'Toiletpaper,' the creative collective behind Toiletpaper Magazine. The trio is fascinated by what It's Nice That contributor Maisie Skidmore refers to as "the bizarre, the grotesque, the darkly humorous and the sensual."
The Toiletpaper aesthetic is, indeed, a delicious combination of luxury, sexuality and oddities that has become instantly recognizable. Their latest series, which appears in Dazed Magazine's Autumn/Winter 2014 issue, features fashion by Yohji Yamamoto.
Toiletpaper styled the shoot in their signature, wacky aesthetic. Each image is a cheeky, sensuous and absurdly fun. The entire editorial speaks to the collective's true vision of creating a surreal dreamscape in which anything and everything is possible.
