Nick Knight recently released an uncanny memoriam celebrating the imagination and artistry of fashion wunderkind, Lee Alexander McQueen. The video, extraordinarily ghostly and haunting, features kaleidoscopic imagery of some of McQueen's most iconic garments. Styled by Edward Enninful and modeled by faves like Ajak Deng; Joan Smalls; Flaviana; Rose Cordero; Anais Mali; Jeneil Williams; Kinee Diouf; Quack; Sedene Blake; and Trissan, the film also proves to be a subtle display of diasporic beauty.

The soundtrack piece penned by McQueen's personal friend Bjork peaks at the words "We know it was all worth it. / We know it was all for a reason. / Let’s elevate. / Let’s elevate above, above now” while explosions of red fabric bears a likeness to blood and rain over a model wearing a crown of thorns that of a million tears. Enjoy - To Lee, with Love.
