Best of McQueen

I was browsing through the archives of Alexander McQueen's trying to pick out my favorite pieces to post on the blog but I realized that it would be impossible. Every piece had something really unique and special about it but the thing that they all had in common is the fact that it was created by a very talented and skilled designer. What a tragic loss. I've read that his label will still continue to exist even though the business was not doing very well from a financial point of view. Sadly, his death may be the ultimate marketing move that will make the sales soar. If you think about it, that's the case with all the famous people, just look at Michael Jackson... Karl Lagerfield has said: "Who knows, perhaps after flirting with death too often, death attracts you" which is kind of scary because looking back on all of his collections, there was always some kind of connotation or reference to death involved. Even looking at the skull-printed scarves (yes, the one you probably got from topshop/h&m/zara etc.well, he's the one who thought of it), it becomes obvious. May his soul rest in peace.
