Alexander McQueen... a flower to you...

A single flower left outside the Alexander McQueen store in Old Bond Street

By this time all of you know and maybe have posted that iconic fashion designer Alexander McQueen has died, having taken his own life on February 11, 2010, which comes just days after the death of his beloved mother, Joyce.

The fashion industry has suffered a huge loss.

One of the most fascinating things about Lee "Alexander" McQueen is that his creations were as beautiful as they were bizarre. And no doubt many of you would recognize his famous "Armadillo" shoes, also referred as "lobster shoes," "lobster claw shoes," "hoof shoes," or, "those shoes in Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance' video."

I wish you would've held on a bit longer to realize that the huge pain of losing your Mom will eventually be vanishing as I hope mine will.

May you rest in peace.

  1. Olá minha querida,

    está tudo bem contigo?

    Desculpa não comentar com mais frequência, mas como vês acompanho o teu blogue sempre (sigo-o mas como anónima, como digo sempre sigo os meus blogues preferidos anonimamente, porque gosto mais de ter os links na página principal).

    Foi uma grande perda para o mundo da moda! Era um criador, um artista, um génio e um dos meus designers preferidos! Quando ouvi a notícia ontem fiquei de rastos, mesmo triste. Estou sempre a colocar as peças dele nos meus posts...

    A imagem da flor em frente à loja está lindíssima apesar da tristeza inerente à mesma :(

    Um beijo muito grande
    Su :)

  2. darling im praying for you at this dreadful time. Please know that you are being thought off. Just sent you an email.
    All my love,

  3. How sad. Please keep tending your "inner me". Reach out to friends and receive their sympathies, even if awkwardly extended. Don't rush through your grief. Make time your friend. Thank you for your kind note.

  4. R.I.P. Sir Alexander McQueen!

    ♥The newest giveaway by Gemma ends tomorrow.♥

    Hurry up!

  5. This is so tragic, seems like he was a very fragile individual. The blow of his mother's and bestfriend death was clearly weighting heavy on his soul.


Thank you for visiting my humble blog! I read all your comments (even though I don't reply often) with great care. So keep them coming! Love to everyone :)
