Mugler Maniac

07/10/2012, Alexander McQueen, Fashion and Style, Mugler, Paris, Sonia Rykiel

My friend Nicola sent me this insect-inspired, straw sweater from Mugler. I wanted to wear it to the fashion show but I had problems finding an appropriate bottom to wear it with, plus, it also rained that day and I was afraid to get it wet. Anyhoo, I thought it would be nice to take it out for a spin around the nitty, gritty 10eme at my first, post-fashion week (or should I say, post-fashion month) Parisian stroll.

In My Own Element

18/08/2012, Alexander McQueen, Current Affairs, Michael Kors

Oh the things that we do, the places we’ll go to get that photo taken. The Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah was the crown jewel of our recent road trip. Located just a few hours drive from Salt Lake City, the salt flats is the most incredible, most picturesque, most desolate place I’ve ever set foot in my whole life. No words can describe the emotions I felt when I was there. Imagine being separated from humanity and being in touch with planet Earth — no roads, no lights, no traces of culture, civilization or man-made items. Very post-apocalyptic.

The Light Installation At Alexander McQueen Fall 2012

08/03/2012, Alexander McQueen, Art, Fall Winter 2012, Fashion and Style

This spectacular light installation greeted showgoers upon entering Salle Wagram, the venue where the Alexander McQueen fall/winter 2012 was held the other day. I have no idea what it’s made out of but it looked like a couple of hundred (or a thousand) Christmas tree ball ornaments lit up with some sort of fiber-optic cords. So breathtaking and enchanting.

Alexander McQueen – Savage Beauty

25/05/2011, Alexander McQueen, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style

Over the weekend, I visited the breathtaking Alexander McQueen exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I queued for over an hour just to see some his work over the past few years. Astonishing. In spite of the sea of people (it felt as if we were packed like sardines), the experience was quite haunting and at times, bone-chilling. McQueen was a genius, a visionary. Photography wasn’t allowed but a friend managed to sneak a shot or two using the good ol’ cellphone. I bought the book (Alexander McQueen – Savage Beauty by Andrew Bolton), as well as a pack of pencils with his Platos Atlantis prints, for good measure.

Alexander McQueen Underwear [something for the boys]

Alexander McQueen Underwear

I don’t think I’ll ever get over Alexander McQueen’s passing. It’s so bittersweet that my first Alexander McQueen show was also his last. With womenswear collections just around the corner, I’m very curious what his successor, Sarah Burton, will come up under his name.

Meanwhile, have you seen McQueen’s first underwear collection for men? 

Buy Alexander McQueen Underwear - skull boxers and briefs

Shop Alexander McQueen Underwear - stripes boxers

They are now
available for sale at Oki-Ni
. Prices range from £40 – £55. A bit pricey for boxers and briefs but hey, they’re McQueen! I’m sure it doesn’t hurt to indulge from time to time…

RIP Alexander McQueen

12/02/2010, Alexander McQueen, Fashion and Style

RIP Alexander McQueen

What a tragedy. Alexander McQueen is no doubt, one of the greatest fashion designers of our
generation. He's a visionary, a tailoring genius. The news of his death is, to put it quite
simply, shocking. I'm a big McQueen fan, even a much bigger fan after watching his spectacular Spring 2010 show in Paris last year. Little did I know it would be his last.

Alexander McQueen

I first heard of the news backstage at BCBG Max Azria via twitter. I told a few friends who were with me at the time and they had doubts about it considering the source was the Daily Mail. After the show, en route to Richard Chai, I spoke to Susie of Stylebubble who told me the press office who is handling Alexander McQueen's McQ presentation here in New York released a (brief) statement.

I wish I could have blogged sooner and paid my respects but, as you
know, I've spent the whole day roaming around New York.

Walking on West Broadway on my way back to my hotel after along day out, I bumped into the super talented Nicola Formichetti who I haven't seen since last October in Paris. We chatted briefly, with Nicola telling me he only just saw Alexander two days ago. As you know, Formichetti and McQueen have worked many, many times. We parted with a bear hug.

Alexander McQueen, may you rest in peace.

Why does it feel like there's a race for the first non-model woman (other than Lady Gaga) to rock those McQueen shoes?

Well, we finally we have a winner. 


No surprise here my minions.

Daphne Guinness, in Alexander Mcqueen Spring/Summer 2010, is the most ferocious woman in the world. I'd sell a kidney just to be able to spend a day in her closet.

Poor Amanda Lepore.
