Serving as art director of Vogue Italia since 1991, Luca Stoppini has overseen the publication’s creative visual layouts for over twenty years. A former architecture student, Stoppini joined the publication alongside Anna Piaggi in 1981, immediately establishing a strong visual identity for the publication. He was subsequently appointed to oversee L’Uomo Vogue and Casa Vogue. One of his most memorable layouts for the publication was a series of collages created in partnership with Debra Scherer, showcasing snapshots of American culture to the Italian style set.
Stoppini has worked on a number of creative collaborations throughout his career including advertising campaigns for Valentino, Prada and Les Copains. He has also designed visual layouts for a number of books such as ‘Animal: Dolce and Gabbana, Wildness’, ‘B.M. Beppe Modense’ and ‘Moschino’.
A celebrated artist in his own right, Stoppini has exhibited his personal contemporary artworks in a number of exhibitions such as the ‘Untitled’ exhibition at the Michael Steinberg Gallery and Hudson Valley Centre for Contemporary Art in New York, the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence and the Marrela Gallery in Beijing.
Stoppini serves as a faculty member at the Nuova Accademia Di Belle Arte Milano, overseeing the ‘MA in Design – Specialisation in Product Design’ course.
