Alexander McQueen’s Last Collection Is Fabulous
March 10, 2010 § Leave a comment
Alexander McQueen’s final collection was only shown to twelve people in Paris this week as a memorial/presentation. The collection combines history and modernity, taking inspiration from Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights other works of art from the fifteenth century and mixing it up with the contemporary. It’s an exquisite collection – so beautiful that all that stuff that looks like mere printed fabric is actually patterned and hand woven. Also: the boots are kind of amazing. You will see them everywhere.
The final look features a fabulous coat made of painted gold leaves – absolutely stunning.
Even though McQueen wanted the label to continue after he died, you have to wonder who could the Gucci Group possibly find to continue this house? How do you replace an artist of this caliber? I hope it doesn’t become like Jil Sander or Helmut Lang…
