My Alexander McQueen book arrived this week, with its beautiful and moving lenticular cover that switches between Lee McQueen’s open, bare face and a glossy metallic skull. The book is a treasure.The imagination in the clothes takes your breath away when you see the collected body of his work.
If, like me, you are unable to leap on a plane and visit the retrospective of his work that is currently being shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, to rave reviews (I have a friend who did go who said it moved her to tears…fashion-speaky stuff, but she’s a tough nut) then you might like to click here to see a very good glimpse of it.
Gainsbury & Whiting are the incredibly talented team behind the amazing fashion shows McQueen stages, and they were involved in the setting of the show. If you have a minute you can see many of the McQueen show settings going back over the years on the site. Careful if you have work to do, it’s absorbing stuff.
