Adventures in good design, good eats, and everything else.

Alexander Mcqueen, Savage Beauty (Part 1)

If you’re not sure where the Alexander McQueen exhibit is amongst the winding galleries of the Met, just look for the line. A thirty minute wait was the precursor to a beautifully presented collection of the late designer’s work. The exhibit definitely lived up to its title with sets perfectly complimenting all things sinister, lurid, and haunting in McQueen’s work. Black walls, aged mirrors, a soundtrack featuring a woman moaning. It was delightful in such a dark way.

Highlights: Pieces from The Girl Who Lived In The Tree, Sarabande, and especially The Widows of Culloden were really just too amazing for words. Don’t miss the Philip Treacy headdresses in all sorts of flavors—wire, coral, feather, and Chinese garden—as well as the wood and leather butterfly harness tucked away in the corner of the accessory portion. Almost every mannequin was outfitted by Guido Palau with a custom mask and are amazing works on their own.








Wind machines, mini holograms, two-way mirrors, blood masks, a TV on the ceiling… shit got crazy. In short, you need to see this exhibit. More photos to come!
