"The perfect flat for the stylish adventurer."
"Add an ethnic-inspired print for a chic traveler feel."
"This striking piece speaks of far-flung destinations."
Few photographers enjoy a reputation quite like that of Mario Testino. His incredible life journey has taken him from his native Peru to Paris, New York and beyond, and his images of fashion, celebrities and royalty have dominated the world's top magazines.
It is Mario's humanity, however, that truly sets him apart, a quality that transformed a shy Diana, Princess of Wales into a vision of confidence; has made him the photographer of choice for his supermodel devotees (Kate, Gisele, Naomi...); and is the driving force behind his Peruvian-based charitable arts foundation, MATE, for which he has designed an exclusive collection for NET-A-PORTER.
We are thrilled to have collaborated with Mario for this special traveler issue. Enjoy highlights from his
collection on Puerto Rican supermodel Joan Smalls; his personal guide to Peru; and his tips on how to look picture-perfect. It is a rare chance to delve into the exotic world of this charismatic character, responsible for some of the most iconic photographs of our time.
