Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty

앞표지
Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2011 - 240페이지
"The exhibition, organized by The Costume Institute, will celebrate the late Alexander McQueen's extraordinary contributions to fashion. From his postgraduate collection of 1992 to his final runway presentation which took place after his death in February 2010, Mr. McQueen challenged and expanded the understanding of fashion beyond utility to a conceptual expression of culture, politics, and identity. His iconic designs constitute the work of an artist whose medium of expression was fashion. Approximately one hundred examples will be on view, including signature designs such as the bumster trouser, the kimono jacket, and the Origami frock coat, as well as pieces reflecting the exaggerated silhouettes of the 1860s, 1880s, 1890s, and 1950s that he crafted into contemporary silhouettes transmitting romantic narratives. Technical ingenuity imbued his designs with an innovative sensibility that kept him at fashion's vanguard." -- MMA website.

I went to the actual exhibit in NYC and wanted to buy the book but could not afford it. Thanks to overstock.com I was able to do so. I am happy to be able to recapture some of Alexander McQueens most memorable outfits because of this book for waaaay less than the original price. 전체 리뷰 읽기
