Savage Beauty

20.03.15 | Comment?

If I could be anywhere in the fashion world this week, I would choose London so I could check out the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition that started last week at the Victoria Albert Museum in London.

Celebrating the extraordinary creative talent of one of the most innovative designers of recent times, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty is the first and largest retrospective of McQueen’s work to be presented in Europe.

We have the utterly lush looking exhibition book on order, but you can place your reserve now! It’ll be just like visiting in person! Kinda!

We also have some other sweet new reads about Alexander McQueen…

Syndetics book coverGods and kings : the rise and fall of Alexander McQueen and John Galliano / Dana Thomas.
“More than two decades ago, John Galliano and Alexander McQueen arrived on the fashions scene when the business was in an artistic and economic rut. Both struggled to get their businesses off the ground, despite early critical success. But by 1997, each had landed a job as creative director for couture houses owned by French tycoon Bernard Arnault, chairman of LVMH. Galliano’s and McQueen’s work for Dior and Givenchy and beyond not only influenced fashion; their distinct styles were also reflected across the media landscape. For both Galliano and McQueen, the pace was unsustainable. In her groundbreaking work Gods and Kings , acclaimed journalist Dana Thomas tells the true story of McQueen and Galliano. In so doing, she reveals the revolution in high fashion in the last two decades–and the price it demanded of the very ones who saved it.” (adapted from syndetics summary)

“The definitive biography of Alexander McQueen which reveals the source of his genius and the links between his dark work and even darker life.” (Syndetics summary)
