With Blue we fulfilled two dreams: to make an issue of large-format, poster-size images and to sew the issue into a custom-made garment, in this case, a limited-edition Levi's turn-of-the-century One-Pocket Sack Coat. With Levi's as the sponsor and blue as the theme, much of the artwork focused on Americana. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin photographed Shalom in an American-flag T-shirt. Richard Phillips overlaid a 1970s-style smiley face on a detailed drawing of a sneering girl. Marcus Piggott and Mert Alas treated us to an iconic close-up of Kate Moss wearing a Levi's collar piece reconstrued to read ''eLvi's.'' Gus Van Sant shot a blue-eyed albino couple from his upcoming film project, and Justine Kurland provided her dystopic view of suburbia. More contributions came from Fabien Baron, Greg Foley and Orfi, David Armstrong, Nan Goldin, Terry Richardson, and Gary Hume.
