Alexander McQueen

February 12, 2010

I had to do a quick post about the tragic loss of the brilliant designer Alexander McQueen.  So much has been said about him on the internet these past two days, and I don’t think I can add too much to the conversation that hasn’t already been said, but plain and simple; he was a true artist.  One only has to flip though the archives of his work on to see.

His designs were imaginative and amazing.  His woman was a warrior princess, a heroin from a Hitchcock film, or a futuristic alien.  I loved flipping through his runway show images each Fashion Week , and I loved popping into his store recently while I was in Vegas, as I talked about here.  The clothes in person were even more amazing than expected.  Here are some of my favorites of his designs over the years.

And my own, Alexander McQueen, perfect, classic, black pumps.  So comfortable and a fabulous find at another one of my favorite consignment shops, The Closet, on Newbury Street in Boston.

Definitely taking these out for a stroll this weekend.  RIP Alexander McQueen.
