After her brief and less than well-received stint as Pop's editor-in-chief, it sounds like Dasha Zhukova has finally found a place to do her fashion-meets-art thing her way. Her new magazine, Garage, debuts for fall 2011 and the New York Times' Eric Wilson got a preview. The art collector, fashion designer, and girlfriend of Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, named the magazine after the Garage Center for Contemporary Culture, a museum she opened in Moscow in 2008. Garage’s art director, Mike Meiré tells the Times, “It is so very, very different from other magazines,” and that sounds pretty accurate. According to Wilson, it "looks almost handmade." The inaugural issue has multiple covers: One was a collaboration between artist Dinos Champan and Show Studio's Nick Knight and features a creepy dollhouse in which a puppet version of Lily Donaldson wears Marc Jacobs. Another cover features a model shot nude from the waist down, her nether regions covered by a butterfly sticker that can be peeled off to reveal...a butterfly tattoo. On a vagina.
