Beyoncè’s Naked Renaissance Armor Came With an Instruction Manual

It might not surprise you to learn that the ornate art piece Beyoncé wears on the cover of her spellbinding new album Renaissance came with “a video of how to install it on her”. What will shock you is that its creator Nusi Quero has no formal fashion training. The inquisitive maker, who studied architecture and is a musician by trade, started dreaming up his bodacious boudoir armor three years ago. His method? Pure intuition.

When Beyoncé’s team inquired about his majestic multi-disciplinary work, previously worn by Grimes and Kylie Jenner, the unintentional designer stuck to his original mission: to make beautiful, intricate things, rather than couture, or even wearable fashion. “I don’t consider Nusi Quero a brand—it is me, it is the peculiar range of ideas that I iterate,” explains the Floridian, who grew up graffitiing the faded tourist attractions that defined his childhood.

Sticking to his guiding principles of “systems, harmony and adornment,” Quero did what he normally does and went scavenging. “Beyoncé’s piece was actually constructed of chromed bits I stumbled upon during one of my ritualistic scavenger hunt strolls through LA’s fashion district,” he shares of finding treasure no one else sees in his hometown. “I don’t know much about garment construction using fabrics (I’m still learning!), so I tend to stick to this one block of shops that has a lot of unique trims, rhinestones, charms and beads. The base of it is a half spiked chrome grid that was then lined with strips of rhinestones, and applied to the body in about six to eight different sections. The styling team [Vance Gamble and Marni X Marni] did a magnificent job applying it to Beyoncé.”

Quero describes his clients as living in a glowing void, where they are infinite and untethered from the dismal realities of the world.
