Alexander McQueen: RTW Fall 2010

Posted on March 13, 2010

Lee Alexander McQueen's last collection was shown in Paris. The mood was reportedly somber, and had the feel of a wake for the brilliant designer who committed suicide only one month ago.

McQueen's fall 2010 ready to wear collection is stunning, with luxurious brocades, golden embellishments such as wings and golden filigreed shoes worthy of an empress. There was quite a bit of religious imagery, as well. McQueen's website site says that the collection was inspired by "Byzantine art, the carvings of Grinling Gibbons, and Old Master paintings and altar pieces including, in particular, works by Jean Fouquet, Sandro Botticelli, Stephan Lochner, Hans Memling, Hugo van der Goes, Jean Hey and Heironymus Bosch."

McQueen cut all the patterns himself on the stand. Take a look:
