As a close friend of de­signer Alexan­der ‘Lee’ McQueen, God­frey Deeny’s poignant es­say in this month’s is­sue re­flects on the life of the in­flu­en­tial de­signer. Shar­ing his favourite mem­o­ries, Deeny thinks back on his time spent with Lee with hap­pi­ness. “I en­joyed a close friend­ship [with McQueen] from his early days drink­ing in Lon­don un­til a fi­nal din­ner in Mi­lan three weeks be­fore he died,” he says. “My favourite mem­o­ries of him were his bru­tal frank­ness and cack­ling laugh af­ter his shows in Mi­lan, when he would let his hair down and free­as­so­ci­ate about his di­verse and bizarre sources of in­spi­ra­tion.”
