Alexander McQueen :: Savage Genius

So continues my exploration into all things sexy. Any undertaking of which MUST include pieces by one Alexander McQueen.
McQueen was undeniably a genius. A tragic genius. One too sensitive for this world.I don’t proclaim to know much about him beyond that. But one only need look at his work, his quotes, examine his aesthetic to determine that much about him.

  1. Alexander McQueen is the only designer that has ever transported me the way looking at a great piece of art can transport one. His last collection was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen (and I’ve only seen it on my computer screen!) Maybe because it so heavily referenced Northern European late Medieval portraiture – one of my favorite art historical moments – but did it so eloquently and was not derivative, but it’s own ‘thing’. Yes, McQueen was a sad, beautiful, genius. Thank you for sharing these quotes and images, Nettie, they’re very inspiring!

  2. I don’t know much about McQueen as I don’t really follow haute couture. Like really not at all. But those were amazing quotes. And designing from the side seems like a damn brilliant idea. :)
