When W started planning a tribute to fashion originals for its 40th anniversary issue, it obviously looked to the fashion original, the legendary fashion editor Anna Piaggi. The mag dispatched photographer Tim Walker to Milan to photograph Anna, just one month before she passed away at 81 years old.
The final results are a stunning reminder of Piaggi’s inimitable style. Walker photographed Anna in front of a white background in her own clothes, done up in her signature makeup and shocking blue hair. The spread is accompanied by a touching tribute to the fashion editor.
