Riassunto:

From Jack the Ripper Stalks His Victims, his 1992 graduate collection, to Plato's Atlantis, the last show before his death in 2010, Lee Alexander McQueen was as celebrated for the exquisite tailoring, meticulous craftsmanship, and stunning originality of his designs as he was notorious for his theatrical—and often controversial—runway shows. McQueen found inspiration for his avant-garde collections everywhere: his Scottish ancestry, Alfred Hitchcock movies, Yoruba mythology, the destruction of the environment—even the fashion industry itself. Whatever his inspiration, however, McQueen’s concept for his runway show came first and was crucial to the development of the collection. Every show had a narrative and was staged with his characteristic dramatic flair. Highland Rape featured disheveled models smeared with “blood” staggering down the runway in town clothes. In Scanners, two robots sprayed paint on a model trapped on a spinning platform. In Widows of Culloden, a hologram of supermodel Kate Moss held center stage. Other McQueen shows staged models walking through water, drifting snowflakes, rain, and wind tunnels; pole-dancing in garish makeup at a carnival, playing living pieces in a bizarre chess game, and performing with trained dancers in a Depression-era-style marathon. Illustrated throughout with stunning photography and liberally sprinkled with quotations from McQueen and those who knew him best, Alexander McQueen: Evolution is the story of the designer’s thirty-five runway shows and the genius behind them.

Descrizione libro Race Point 2012. Fourth printing., New York, 2012. Condizione libro: Fine. Cloth-bound hardback, dust jacket. 216 pages. Profusely illustrated throughout in colour. 1.8kg. English. Fine. Alexander McQueen is as well known for his catwalk shows as his fashion designs. The two are inextricably linked, with the drama of the show adding to the drama and power of the clothes. Each show would be meticulously planned for months in advance and would then be distilled into a fifteen minute catwalk which would leave the audience breathless. They were pieces of performance art. In Evolution, Gleason talks the reader through McQueen's collections from Nihilism (Spring/Summer 1994) to Angels & Demons (Autumn/Winter 2010). The many images are accompanied by a description of each show and the reaction to the collection by the fashion press. 'From Jack the Ripper Stalks His Victims, his 1992 graduate collection, to Plato's Atlantis, the last show before his death in 2010, Lee Alexander McQueen was as celebrated for the exquisite tailoring, meticulous craftsmanship, and stunning originality of his designs as he was notorious for his theatrical—and often controversial—runway shows.
