For its spring 2011 fashion exhibition, New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art will honor Alexander McQueen's reign in fashion. Organized by the Costume Institute, the exhibit titled “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty," will feature over 100 pieces from McQueen’s archives, spanning as early as 1992 to his last runway collection Angels & Demons. According to the MET website, "the collection will include signature pieces such as the bumster trouser, the kimono jacket, and the Origami frock coat, as well as pieces reflecting the exaggerated silhouettes of the 1860s, 1880s, 1890s, and 1950s," which he carefully modernized with great aesthetic sensibility.
I am a great admirer of McQueen's work and I expect that the MET will be showcasing it beautifully. Unfortunately I will not be in the city at that time but if you are, I think it will be a saturday well spent. The exhibit will be open to the public May 4th through July 31st.
