Visionaire #33: Touch, a boxful of cardboard creatures dressed up in fur, feathers, velvet, and netting, is a marriage of paper dolls and Pat the Bunny for very sophisticated grownups. As with every edition of Visionaire, the quarterly publication of style and design, Touch is high-concept eye candy dedicated to a theme in limited, numbered editions of fewer than 3,500. This time out, Visionaire honors the 75th anniversary of the Italian designer and furrier Fendi. A heavy matte black cardboardpackage gives way to a large metal box of brushed gold, perforated with a grid of squares, a cold touch of industrial design that hints at the Fendi logo and yet somehow implies an animal carrying case with air holes. Slide off the lid, and there's the animal: Fendi's soft, supple, pony skin cache-col (yes, it can be worn) enfolded around a stack of unbound, heavy-stock pages, each depicting the creation of a leading designer and stamped or embossed with elaborate printing techniques. Several of the bodies wear Fendi, of course: spare and bright-colored geometric shapes on headless torsos. Other standouts include Yohji Yamamoto's black-robed figure on a shiny silver background clutching a bruise-colored faux fur muff and Dior's newspaper cutout of a lean female form in a feathery dress, stock reports running up her leg. Alexander McQueen's extraterrestrial archer in a yellow sandpaper top and paintbrush skirt strikes a witty note, as does Junya Watanabe's bemused skeleton that can be transformed into a snowman with tiny head and feet. You won't be able to keep your hands off.
