    THE VISIONARY’S VISIONAIRE: If you thought the editorial tributes to Alexander McQueen had run their course, think again. Visionaire’s 58th issue, “Spirit,” due out in June, is dedicated to the late designer and promises to be tough to top. According to the Visionaire team, a McQueen-themed edition has been a long time coming: “In 2003, McQueen came to our SoHo office and gallery to discuss collaborating on an issue of Visionaire…an issue that never came to be. This is our tribute to him,” said Stephen Gan, Cecilia Dean and James Kaliardos in a statement. Nick Knight, Lady Gaga (JFC SRSLY?), Steven Klein, Mario Sorrenti, Steven Meisel, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, David Sims, Mario Testino, Sean Ellis and Sebastian Faena are among the 20 creative types contributing to the tome, which will print in a limited run of 1,500 copies and sell for $295. As for the content (a preview of which goes live today on Visionaireworld.com), Klein came up with a new portrait of McQueen, Lady Gaga produced a sound clip, and Sorrenti and stylist Camilla Nickerson contributed a new image from McQueen’s final collection, fall 2010. Meanwhile, the actual physical product goes beyond the garden-variety magazine memorial: Each issue comes in a case designed by the McQueen studio and wrapped in a metallic brocade from the spring 2010 collection. And the stock is special loose leaf embedded with wild flowers (poppies, snap dragons and such) that bloom when planted and watered, for those who want to give their limited edition back to the Earth. — Jessica Iredale

    ^That's pretty standard price for Visionaire, though...I was almost expecting the price to be hiked up even more since there is special value to this particular edition.

    I have never wanted a Visionaire more in my life. I have never even seen one in person before.

    I am surprised at the price TBQH. I was also expecting it to be higher. 300 is what they always cost.

    exactly.

    it's also due to the luxurious and innovative way they tend to distribute the publication.

    i'm surprised too this isn't more than the standard given its subject and content. but this edition looks superb. nice way to pay tribute to lee.

    I don't get everybody whining over the price when the Comme des Garcon edition sells for $2,500 and Rei Kawakubo isn't even dead. :rolleyes: $295 is pretty standard for Visionaire.

    In response to romeoelliott, you can get it off Visionaire's website. :wink:

    I'm excited about the brocade covering. I can't wait to get this! :heart:

    I ordered it a few days ago, and I'll take snaps when I get it. I have no idea when it's supposed to be coming out, however. I'll I know is sometime in June. Is there a specific date set? :unsure:

    I normally would never Visionaire because I always find the pricing was WAY too ridiculous but luckily I can have a chance to look at it because my cousin loves the mags. The contents sound absolutely fantastic.
