Ode to McQueen

Alexander McQueen's last collection was presented this week during the Paris collections. 80% complete upon his recent untimely death, his inspirations were clearly well represented throughout the final 16 piece fall/winter collection. Calling upon medieval Madonnas and Byzantine empresses, the collection gave way to a romantic tone featuring the exquisite tailoring McQueen was so well-known for. A true poetic final adieu.
Here are a few looks of the final 16 piece collection.
