really, just, wow.
So creepy - beautiful. Poetry as fashion.
Especially the raven body cast......
When I think of Alexander McQueen, I'm reminded that individual self expression comes in so many forms, whether it be fashion, interior design, pen to paper or whatever. None of it frivolous all of it a necessary part of social and human evolution.
“Savage Beauty,” a retrospective of Alexander McQueen’s two decades in fashion, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Something not to miss if you're in NYC.
There's a great video over at the New Yorker covering this retrospective with Judith Thurman narrating. check it out.
I agree "poetry as fashion," or it can also be fashion as poetry.
I think the body suits created with the feathers, are both beautiful and disgusting and make me consider the whole concept of using fur, or anything other animal product in the name of fashion.
I'm glad you gave this a voice.
He was a genius though and I absolutely adore his eye for design. Like you say it is art and the female body is his canvas. Amazing!
