With over 50,ooo visitors since it opened, the record-breaking Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum in New York is breaking all records. Undeniably the best retrospective in recent memory, if you can’t get there, the exhibit catalog is a must. With its jarring holographic cover juxtaposing a portrait of McQueen with a skull, the realization for his iconic print is disturbingly obvious. The highlight is the display or “cabinet of curiosities”. Don’t miss out, this is sure to be a collector’s item. Look for it on amazon.com or The Met’s online museum store.
Be on the lookout: we learned from the Savage Beauty Facebook page that a limited edition skull scarf will also be offered soon.
