The suggested caption to accompany this cover goes something like this, “All the air I ever breathed.” Attribution to the cover star Lily McMenamy at the time of press remains uncertain, but one thing is clear, this cover of the tenth issue of Office is in fact refreshing. Photographed by Kacper Kasprzyk and styled by Anders Sølvsten Thomsen, Lily’s edition is part of a series of 10 different covers marking the fifth anniversary of the publication. Wearing a dress by Vivienne Westwood and hardware by Y Project, the cover is consistent with the very ethos of the magazine, which aims to “subvert convention with an unorthodox approach to fashion and creative culture at large.” Strident as that sounds, begrudging Office its moment to shine on the occasion of a fifth anniversary would be churlish. Hat tip to Office, then, and its star Lily McMenamy.
