Autumn / Winter 2001
AnOther Magazine's launch in 2001 heralded a new chapter in magazine publishing. Its blend of high fashion and world-class photography with intelligent features on the arts, politics and literature set it apart, and continues to make each beautifully crafted edition an essential purchase for anyone with an interest in fashion and culture.
AnOther Magazine has established a reputation for highly original content brought together in its pages by an established and emerging set of photographers, stylists and writers bound by a search for creativity and authenticity. Counting Nicole Kidman, Jodie Foster, Natalie Portman and Tilda Swinton amongst its impressive run of leading Hollywood cover stars, it is the most recognised biannual fashion magazine in the world.
Another Magazine is published twice a year in September and February around the international fashion weeks.
This issue of AnOther Magazine is an exploration of sensory overload: be it through powerful visions or touching moments, glamour or excess, we examine the force of creativity in challenging times.
At just 23, Saoirse Ronan is this year nominated for her third Academy Award, having recently netted a Golden Globe for her role in Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut, Lady Bird. Ronan talks to Hannah Lack about that film as well as her forthcoming lead role in the screen adaptation of Ian McEwan’s On Chesil Beach, her work ethic, nomadic existence and slant on post-Weinstein Hollywood.
Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele has rewritten the Italian fashion house’s codes with his now- trademark flair for kaleidoscopic fantasy. His latest collection and the Elton John costume pieces that inspired it made for the perfect showcase for shape- shifting Ronan, shot by Craig McDean and styled by Katie Shillingford. Michele talks to Susannah Frankel about his free-spirited family and its effect on his sparkling vision for Gucci in an exclusive interview.
Donatella Versace stands at the helm of another grand Italian fashion house which this year sees the 20th anniversary of the death of designer, and her brother, Gianni. In an interview with Alexander Fury, Donatella explains how her Spring/Summer 2018 collection celebrates the lavish legacy of his designs, which is captured in all its multidimensional glory in a 28-page special by styled by Katy England and photographed by Willy Vanderperre.
Exploring the overblown and blossoming garden of Alexander McQueen, the AnOther Magazine centrefold has returned. Sarah Burton’s foliate new collection is photographed by Mario Sorrenti and styled by Robbie Spencer.
Paolo Roversi photographs his friend Azzedine Alaïa’s final haute couture collection for our limited edition cover, styled by Robbie Spencer; while Zoe Ghertner situated the explosive extravagance of Comme des Garçons in a domestic setting with styling by Jane How.
For Art Project, photographer Anders Edström takes us on a tour of artist Marc Quinn’s studio, exploring his History Painting series – a decade-long project recontextualising the daily, often sensory, onslaught of news and media, with an interview by Deborah Orr.
This issue’s Document has been guest-edited by designer Christopher Kane. Happily declaring that he does not read, Kane compiled a selection of films, soundtracks and interviews that have enriched the magnetic landscape of his career.
PLUS: Nile Rodgers, Vaquera, Michel Gaubert, Saskia de Brauw and Gaika on their sensory worlds, shot by Casper Sejersen and styled by Nell Kalonji.
