mcqueen's final collection

I was revisiting the final McQueen collection today. I hate talking all cliche and such, but this is really everything a final collection should be: a view at both the past and at the future, crafted according to the designer's vision. The drapey dresses are reminiscent of his previous collection (Plato's Atlantis) and the styling of the hair with mowhawk thingies looks feels very McQueen/punkish. The collection is filled with rich brocades and jacquards, harking back to the middle ages and the beginnings of couture techniques. But the use of iconography as digitally printed on some of the fabrics makes it incredibly freshfeeling and new. Once again, rest in peace Mr McQueen.
