LOVE 16.5 isn’t your standard issue – it’s a secret project in tandem with renowned photographer Mert Alas that touts Madonna and her son, Rocco Ritchie. The special edition collector’s cover will launch September 19.

Madonna was lensed sans makeup or hair, wearing a hooded Palace sweatshirt at Alas’ Hampstead home. About Rocco’s debut modelling gig – and amidst the public scrutiny over the mother-son relationship, EIC Katie Grand said:

“In early 2016, the media was obsessing over the discord in Madonna’s relationship with her son Rocco. I was struck by how mean the press were about a woman simply going to work and wanting her son to be a part of it. I spoke to Mert about the possibility of doing a shoot with her, as he, Madonna and Rocco are all friends. I wasn’t sure it would ever happen, to be honest, but Mert said, ‘Let me ask M and Rocco.’ Much to my surprise, the morning after Madonna’s reconciliation with Rocco, nine stunning images of Madonna arrived via WhatsApp.”

Madonna talks being an artist and about Instagram in the 10-page reportage. Catch the intimate issue during London Fashion Week and get a more in-depth sneak peak here.
