MANILA, Phillipines — Music sensation, St. Michael, Barbados born Rihanna reigns on the cover of GARAGE Issue #15, photographed by artist Deana Lawson and style by Carlos Nazario.
The cover image features Rihanna in Dolce & Gabbana briefs, a pair of Y/Project stilettos, a necklace from Tiffany’s, and, in a surprising twist, a rose bolero from the 1960s.
Nazario did his vintage shopping in London, working with Rellik and One of a Kind — the latter owned by Jeff Ihenacho.
“this incredible Jamaican guy who’s been collecting vintage since it was not vintage—since the ’70s and ’60s,” Nazario said.
“His taste tends to veer towards the more theatrical, and his collection’s vibe is very Caribbean queen, which was one of the inspirations for this shoot.” Nazario called him a few days prior, and he dug through his extensive archive, delivering several pieces to the stylist, including that rose bolero and the yellow ball skirt. The ball skirt, paired with a Gucci top, was a piece of American couture; Ihenacho “couldn’t pinpoint the exact designer, but he was sure that it was American and probably from the ‘60s.”
