the best of the best…of the best. McQueen.

Ever since its opening, there has been nothing but rave about the MET’s retrospective of Alexander McQueen‘s work. It’s a surprise to no one, given Lee’s huge success and acclaim. You may not have agreed with his work or words, but you certainly couldn’t deny his creative genius.

Looking through the photos is enough to make one’s heart flutter, and from first-hand reviews, it seems seeing it in person is practically indescribable. I say “seems” since those first-hand reviews aren’t coming from me…yet. My road trip schemes continue, of course, but until they come to fruition I’m infatuated with the MET blog’s selected images. Accompanied with excerpts from curator Andrew Bolton, McQueen creative director Sarah Burton, and Lee himself, they are great view at some of the best pieces from one of the wold’s best designers. These truly are the best of the best of the best.
