McQueen's final collection

Alexander McQueen's last collection was about 80% done when he died his tragic death. His right hand woman and staff finished it, staying as true to his vision as possible. The collection takes its inspiration from Medieval religious iconography. The drapes, folds and lines are exquisite, sophisticated and ride a razor edge line between extravagant and restrained, spiritual and sexy, dark and ethereal. He will be missed, and I hope someone amazing is writing his biography right now.
