The work of the Saints of Pierre et Gilles makes up the backbone – and the cover – of 4 HEAVEN, a precious issue. Todd Oldham’s embroidered-silk clouds, for example, were made in India, and we then cut them up together in his New York showroom. Certainly, the surprise of the issue came from Martin Margiela. He did not want to reveal to us what his contribution was going to be. One day the doorbell rang, we answered it only to find four huge boxes that had been sent via FedEx from Paris. Inside were a thousand bags of white confetti-one for each copy of HEAVEN. We could not have imagined a nicer Christmas present.
