In 2003, before his death earlier this year, Alexander McQueen planned on collaborating with Visionaire, the luxury, collectable publication, on a dedicated issue. The project never came to fruition.
This summer, Visionaire is publishing its 58th edition, called "Spirit" and dedicated to McQueen. Contributors include Lady Gaga, Steven Klein, Mario Testino, and Mario Sorrenti. The issue is packaged in a case wrapped in the brocade from the Alexander McQueen Spring 2010 collection and will cost $295 at visionaireworld.com.
