Alexander McQueen’s Final Collection

Just weeks before he took his life, Alexander McQueen put the finishing touches on his last collection.

The words in the end of the show notes: “Each piece is unique, as was he”.

See more from McQueen’s fall 2010 RTW collection below:

His inspirations ranged from Byzantine art and Old Master paintings to the carvings of Grinling Gibbons, and each look was worn with a bronzed cap, some spiked with a Mohawk of gilded leaves like a Roman war helmut.

McQueen continued to experiment with ideas from his last collections, this time engineering prints by digitally capturing entire works of art and weaving them into fabrics.

With a haunting soundtrack of operatic music, the presentation was solemn, funereal and eve a little spooky – and the references to angels, broken skulls and religious themes eerily prescient.

Tears were welling in the eyes of some spectators as the finale dress entered: a grand coat of gold feathers that ended in a froth of embroidered tulle.

The Alexander McQueen business will reportedly continue under Gucci Group.
