188. Alexander McQueen | Savage Beauty

This is the book published for the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibit opening at the Metropolitan Museum of Art tomorrow. Since I love/collect coffeetable books and I love Alexander McQueen, I HAD to have this. I was suprised at how fast it arrived - I ordered it on friday and it came yesterday (monday)!

The cover is the coolest thing ever. It turns from a golden skull into the face of Alexander McQueen..I attempted to take a video of it (posted on my FB) but found this video instead, which shows it much better:


& here's a few of my favourite pages from the book. I had to resist taking a picture of EVERY page lol:

Fall/Winter 2001

  3. Yesterday I came across this book called "Alexander McQueen Genius of a Generation". I am really impressed by his extravagant design.

  4. What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.

  5. Hi, great blog. You mentioned that you are into collecting coffee table books, and was wondering if you can share some other cool ones like this McQueen one? My girlfriend loves fashion and books like this, and I was looking to pick up some more like this for Christmas...any suggestions?
