A Peek At The Pirelli Calendar 2018

July 27, 2017

The Pirelli Company is one of the largest tire manufacturing companies in the world so you may not put tires and high fashion together in your mind but on paper, it works, at least in a calendar. Every year Pirelli puts together their famous Pirelli Calendar, available to the trade only and in limited edition and over the last several years it’s become a high fashion event. The calendar was originally conceived and created in 1963, it was discontinued in 1974 during the energy crisis of the 70’s but brought back a decade later. Today the Pirelli calendar is a much sought after collection of high-end, high fashion photographs with many famous celebrities gracing the pages. This year the theme is an all African-American Alice In Wonderland, Vanity Fair recently shared a behind the scenes look at the putting together of the calendar and I’m sharing those pictures today as well as a few from previous years. Enjoy this timely work of art and let me know if you’re one of the lucky people in the world who receives this coveted gem, Enjoy!!!
