Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty – in pictures: “The work of Alexander McQueen, who died in last year, is to be the subject of an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. A preview of the show, which will run 4 May to 31 July 2011, was unveiled at the Ritz as part of London fashion week. The US exhibition will feature more than 100 pieces of work from McQueen’s 19-year career.” (guardian.co.uk; see previously)

McQueen’s Mesmerizing Finale: “The private show that took place Tuesday, to the classical music Mr. McQueen had been listening to as he cut and fitted the 2010 autumn collection, was a requiem for a great designer. His vision of Gothic glory, with a world bathed in religious symbolism, was translated not just with immense subtlety and beauty but also with the urgent futurism that was the essence of his spirit.” (NYT; see also)

I own exactly one piece of clothing by Alexander McQueen: a heavy black wool scarf with a knitted skull pattern from his Fall 2007 collection, which was given to me by a dear friend who worked with him and which I’ve only worn once, because it’s seven feet long and heavy and, well, wool, and I don’t have many occasions to wear seven foot long wool scarves. But it’s something to have, especially now.
