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. The title was conjured by Lee in direct response to the sponsors of the show American Express and the upcoming launch of their new Gold Card in the UK. However, it was later replaced by the title, “Untitled”, dueContinue reading “Alexander McQueen “Golden Shower” SS 1998 R-T-W”

Grails Part 2: D&G Military Flight Jacket and Pants

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.

Alexander McQueen “La Poupée” SS 1997 R-T-W

“La Poupée”, McQueen’s subsequent show after his “Dante” collection was distorted beauty personified. Inspired by Hans Bellmer’s photographs of mutilated and reassembled dolls.

“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”

Grails Part1: Craig Green Scuba Jacket

Craig Green’s Fall 2017 collection show left a mark on whoever attended. A seamless amalgamation of texture, tone and design. We were immersed into the depths, and yes the irony is not lost on me seeing as Craig himself stated he was thinking about the sea, and its connotations of peril, fear and isolation. Now,Continue reading “Grails Part1: Craig Green Scuba Jacket”
