Hail, McQueen

by sarah • May 16

For those who haven’t yet flocked to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City to see the Alexander McQueen show, brace yourselves for a vivid journey into the designer’s exceptional mind. His impact on the worlds of fashion, design, and art struck like a comet—burning intensely and ending in tragedy—but will continue to radiate influence for years to come. Viewing the collection illustrates the many facets of McQueen’s mind, from historian and anthropologist to futurist, romanticism to restraint, and on an on. Each piece wraps the human form in intricacies of sculptural delight, pushing the boundaries of materials and dimensionality. Go now, go again.
