It’s been more than a year since the death of the designer Alexander McQueen and so far we have seen plenty of tributes paid to the designer.
This month he was honored in many ways.
Harper’s Bazaar paid him tribute in an editorial named “Long Live McQueen“, featuring the supermodel Kate Moss and Annabelle Neilson. Photographed by Solve Sundsbo, both models are wearing Alexander McQueen archive pieces from 2004.
The editorial is named “Alexander The Great” and presents looks that will be displayed at the Costume Institute from May 4th in another homage to the designer. Of course the photo shoot was photographed by Steven Meisel.
Karlie Kloss is wearing a dress from Spring 1999.
After his McQueen’s death, Sarah Burton took over the creative director position. So far, she’s been doing great, in my opinion. I can’t believe I didn’t show a single piece from the Fall/Winter 2011 collection so far.
“The Ice Queen and her court” was the motto. There was a lot of light, white ensembles and shoulder seams, marking what she called the “heritage silhouettes”.
It was fur, fur and fur and lots of fabric mixes.
Tulle, organza, fringes…there was a bit of everything. This is what I love in Sarah Burton. She is not afraid of mixing.
