Last Looks: McQueen’s Legacy
Most of us do not get to choose our last words, but Alexander McQueen’s last creations speak louder than words.
Because he took his own life, he would have known that these are the last pieces we would see originate from his imagination. I hope he was proud as they are are regal, ethereal, and simply stunning. I know that his label will continue on, and I hope that it manages to keep true to his pioneering spirit, but these pieces remind us that he was in the prime of his career and had so much more ahead. I’m saddened that we will never get to see what he thought of next, but I am grateful that his team finished these ensembles so that we could all have one last look at the genius of Alexander McQueen.
