    One thought on “Alexander McQueen”

    1. This beautiful book was an excellent addition to the alexander mcqueen exhibition at the v&a - the most breathtaking exhibit i have ever been to. I have not finished this book as i like to have it out and just read at leisure, and for now have been taking in the wonderful imagery and quotes. He was such an inspirational man, and I will look up to him always. The price of this book is excellent value for money also and if you did not get a chance to visit the savage beauty exhibition then i w [...]

    2. I think this might be one of the better books on Alexander McQueen. Compared to 'Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty' there are many many photos of runway shows and behind the scenes, whereas the former mostly has photos of the clothing on inanimate mannequins (which misses the point in my opinion, I prefer to see the costumes in human animation). I find it very invigorating to flip through the photos of his macabre and sublime creations. I also enjoyed how chapters were thematically arranged, dedi [...]

    3. Had he lived, Alexander McQueen would have celebrated his 46th year last week. But the Brit fashion “wildchild” and master of both tailoring and fierce, warrior women garb suicided in February 2010. His fashion legacy has been continued authentically through the designs and vision of his assistant Sarah Burton, who took the reins soon after his death and has been embraced by his fans and new league of followers.Alexander “Lee” McQueen was not a provocateur of the “Now see THIS!” vari [...]

    4. It's an amazing insight into McQueen's world and genius! Enjoyed every page of it! So many unknown facts and details on his life and work, that it literally helps you feel as if you lived and witnessed personally those moments of his life described in the book. It was written with so much love and admiration for his creation which makes understand him even better, and love even more! Love for McQueen forever!

    5. I picked up a copy of this beautiful book following a trip to the V&A to see the Alexander McQueen exhibition. As a coffee table style book, I expected more images and less text, however this is a very essay heavy book - which is why I have given a lower score than I had intended.For anyone who is a true fan or lover of fashion, I would heavily recommend this book for the depth and breadth it covers. The images are beautiful, but in some places sparing. An exquisitely crafted ode to the life [...]

    6. As a massive Lee McQueen fan, I had high expectations of this book and I was not let down. It was wonderful!!! Really encapsulated his genius as a rare, and wondrous witness to the world. Written by the people who knew the man best. I recommend this book to not only fashion fans, but all of humanity.
