As we might have mentioned, this year is AnOther Magazine’s 15th Birthday – and, as such, we have celebrated in style with S/S16 cover stars including a holographic Karl Lagerfeld, Kate Moss, Grimes, Björk and Kristen Stewart. If that wasn't enough, this month we additionally unveil an extremely special edition of AnOther Magazine: The April Issue, created in homage to the more elusive figures who frequent fashion and the arts.

Following a season that saw Martin Margiela’s influence prevail on the runways, the iconic designer takes the position of our cover star, revealing all about his life and career to a woman renowned not only for her designs but equally her proclivity for conversation: Rei Kawakubo. Then, Helmut Lang returns to the spotlight, accompanied by Ann Demeulemeester, to curate the fashion section which adopts the theme of (The Emperor's) New Clothes.

John Cage composes an original soundtrack to accompany this special issue, an extension of his immutably powerful composition 4’33”. Then, for Document, H. G. Wells – author of The Invisible Man ­– has compiled the finally-finished works of literary behemoths: the long-awaited completed incarnations of Frank Kafka’s The Man Who Disappeared, Vladimir Nabokov’s The Original of Laura and Henry James’ The Sense of the Past.

Finally, lauded minimalist Robert Ryman curates the Art Project section, his famously sparse compositions adding a lightness to the pages. As Peter Saville once remarked, “It’s negative space as thinking space. It is a luxury. Time and space are modern luxuries.” And here, we present time and space in abundance: a publishing first, celebrating the most modern luxuries.
