Visionaire dedicated 58 SPIRIT to the memory of Alexander “Lee” McQueen. The issue commemorates McQueen’s life and career by publishing the imagery that had defined it. From the iconic Nick Knight image of Devon Aoki with a pin through her forehead to the haunting Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin portrait of the designer himself, SPIRIT amassed photographs that, like McQueen and his revolutionary fashion, were completely unforgettable. Mario Sorrenti collaborated with fashion editor Camilla Nickerson producing a photo based on the sacrificial lamb. Printed onto pulp paper embedded with seeds, the issue could be planted to transform into a garden of wildflowers — a statement about the transience of life and fashion that honored the designer’s vision.
