‘Lee Alexander McQueen: Mind, Mythos, Muse’ is on view at LACMA!

Featured spreads are from Lee Alexander McQueen: Mind, Mythos, Muse. Published to accompany the blockbuster exhibition currently on view at LACMA, this vivid, 176-page hardcover juxtaposes McQueen’s iconic fashion designs with historic textiles and works of art, revealing his dynamic approach to storytelling. “Lee Alexander McQueen was both a conceptual and technical virtuoso,” curators Clarissa M. Esguerra and Michaela Hansen write. “One of the most significant contributors to fashion between 1990 and 2010, the designer’s critically acclaimed collections synthesized his unique training in Savile Row tailoring, theatrical design and haute couture with a remarkable breadth of references spanning time, geography, media, technology, popular culture, the natural world and his lived experiences. The designer’s singular viewpoint produced exquisitely constructed, thought-provoking fashion that could also be subversive or allegorical. His powerful—and at times controversial—collections presented deliberately personal responses to contemporary and historical sociocultural issues and events. As Nick Knight, a photographer who collaborated closely with McQueen, observed: ‘Any artist’s work is ultimately about themselves, and their perspective on the world. And McQueen was a true artist. He worked in fashion because he believed—as I do—that it is the most relevant, the most exciting medium of our time. Which, of course, is why it has the capacity to outrage.’”
