Alexander McQueen “Golden Shower” SS 1998 R-T-W

“Golden Shower”, is a vile and erotic phrase aptly used for Alexander McQueen’s 1998 Spring/Summer collection.

At this point, I intend to make this grail collection a series. Every few years it seems as though military and bondage styles and clothing become trendy again.

C2H4 Los Angeles: The Future Of Humanity

C2H4 is a utilitarian streetwear brand unlike any other. I felt inclined to shed light on this brand due to its most recent campaign titled “Future City Uniform” for FW21. This retro-futuristic take is not an unpopular approach, however, I haven’t quite seen it done like this before. In this campaign, C2H4 displayed their creativeContinue reading “C2H4 Los Angeles: The Future Of Humanity”

“Highland Rape” FW 1995 Collection By Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen is a household name in fashion. When we think of McQueen we think “provocative”, “genius”, “rebellious”, “anti-establishment”. Now, there isn’t much room for successful or impactful defiance in the industry as we know it, neither is there an acceptance of the abnormal. However, Lee created it in such a way that couldn’t beContinue reading ““Highland Rape” FW 1995 Collection By Alexander McQueen”

Now,Continue reading “Grails Part1: Craig Green Scuba Jacket”
