Visionaire: 27 MOVEMENT

One of our most conceptual issues - not only because it was based on the abstract notion of motion but also because the images were printed on vellum, a near-transparent material that enhanced the stop-motion effects of the photographs. We used another technology - lenticular photography - to create the 3D front- and back-cover images of Kate Moss swinging to and fro. In fact, those images were created by an all-English team: Nick Knight took the picture, Peter Saville art directed, and Alexander McQueen and Katy England did the styling, which made perfect sense when we launched the issue at Harvey Nichols in London. Other contributors included designers Martin Margiela and Hussein Chalayan, artists Ross Bleckner and Tony Oursler, illustrator François Berthoud, and photographers Steven Meisel and Steven Klein.
