This definitive publication on Alexander McQueen invites you into the creative mind and world of one of Britain’s most brilliant, daring, and provocative designers, and the many themes and references that shaped his visionary fashion collections.
“He brought a uniquely British sense of daring and aesthetic fearlessness to the global stage of fashion. In such a short career, Alexander McQueen’s influence was astonishing—from street style, to music culture and the world’s museums.” —Anna Wintour, editor, Vogue magazine
A true comprehensive study, this catalog is the first in-depth look at McQueen and explores key themes of the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition—tailoring, gothic, primitivism, naturalism, and futurism.
