re:fresh : Alexander McQueen’s “Savage Beauty”


“You’ve got to know the rules to break them. That’s what I’m here for, to demolish the rules but to keep the tradition.” – Alexander McQueen

It’s not that I don’t like you, I’m just tryna pass the time… going through my closets finding clothes that poets rhyme…

One of the reasons why McQueen’s collections often were so hard to watch is that they often channeled our cultural anxieties and uncertainties, and that was very much part of his raison d’être.

I think one of the reasons why he loved nature so much was because it was so unpredictable, it was so spontaneous, and it was something that one could never control.

You were always not sure what to expect when you went into a McQueen show. And you also didn’t know what you felt when you left a McQueen show at the same time. You always were left with sort of feelings of confusion…

Long Live McQueen… Thank God he bathed the scene… #amenfashion
