Last night I went to the Savage Beauty exhibition featuring Alexander McQueen’s most striking and pioneering designs at the V&A Museum.
The McQueen journey is truly extraordinary and will have surprises even for those familiar with his work. Each collection reflects his interpretation of polemic themes from centuries ago up and until today. England & Scotland, East & West, Nature & Humanity. His collections appear to get darker over time and reflect his genius as well as his tortured soul.
Materials he used include crocodile heads, impala horns, armadillo skin, an abundance of metals and a beautiful sea of chiffon and feathers.
Some sneaky photos I managed to take…
