Nice Stems

You know... seeing this again made me realize how I think of McQueen's work ( an all encompassing word for what he did).

His clothes are an extension of a person. It makes them ...More. Stronger. Clearer. Animated..Beautiful prosthetics.

From here on out though, without him here, his label's new creations can only be lovely clothes.

“And you know, the fact is, nobody knew that they were prosthetic legs. They were the star of the show - these wooden boots peeking out from under this raffia dress - but in fact, they were actually legs made for me.”
