Alexander McQueen ~ 1 of 5

The Search for the Golden Fleece
This is my favorite piece. I admire McQueen, but my taste is not so dark after all. This piece feels sunny and happy, the romance of the ancient story, the sun and the seashores of the Mediterranean…..The molded leather is amazing; women with beautiful shoulders and slender legs would look good in it.

Strange that his inspiration was, as he said, to think perversely, and yet the completed work is so beautiful. This is my second favorite piece from the show. His inspiration is: “my idea was this mad scientist who cut all these woman up and mixed them all back together.” In fact the leather and the thousand-layer skirts makes quite an orchestra of forms and shapes, exquisite.

The vulture skull was a bit humorous and surrealistic.
