Alexander... why must thou torture us so?
There was an intimate unveiling of McQueen's
unfinished collection comprised of 16 looks during
a sombre fashion week. Sombre, of course, because
of the recent passing of one of fashion's most beloved patrons.
The detail, the tailoring, and the design of all of his pieces in this
final collection left me speechless. Such beauty, such artistry,
and such power... It's almost torturous how he left leaving his vision
unfinished. We can only imagine what his finished vision would have
been, not only of the collection but in the presentation. We all know
that his shows are unlike any other. His shows were art.
Video footage of his final collection for fall 2010 can be seen on
Fashionista. The video includes
footage of devinely sculpted shoes and
handbags printed using the same digital church painting prints McQueen
had special ordered for some of the pieces in his collection. (Reference: Style.com)
I'm particularly in love with his printed handbags, and
it would truly be a dream to be able to afford something from
his final collection.
May he rest in peace...
