Can't believe the terribly sad news that Lee Alexander McQueen has passed away. Such an incredible talent. These are a few favourites from the last 5 years or so. A review of one of his collections said this:
The one element that has gone missing in the collections is the spine-tingling,
eye-welling emotion of a show so exceptional to witness that—despite all
exhaustion, cynicism, and workaday pressures—it suddenly transforms being
involved in fashion into a magical privilege. Just when it seemed like that
feeling was virtually extinct, Alexander McQueen handed his audience a
self-imagined fantasy of crinolined princesses and British-colonial romance of
such beauty, it arguably surpassed anything he's achieved in 14 years.
