alexander mcqueen, “savage beauty” retrospective at the metropolitan museum

i was lucky enough to get a private escort tonight after the museum closed, courtesy of a dear friend with a similar passion for such artistry.  we were awed.

more expository later.  for now (all pics courtesy of the met):

“I think there has to be an underlying sexuality. There has to be a perverseness to the clothes. There is a hidden agenda in the fragility of romance.  It’s like the story of O. I’m not big on women looking naive. There has to be a sinister aspect, whether it’s melancholy or sadomasochism. I think everyone has a deep sexuality and sometimes it’s good to use a little of it–and sometimes a lot of it–like a masquerade.”–alexander mcqueen
