No, it is not because of “fashion” for the sake of it, not even for vanity. In fact, I dress like a regular person: I just can´t avoid feeling admiration everytime I see superb pieces of art theirs. Take a look and be amazed…
What I will say from here, are opinions and concepts from my very personal point of view. While not a professional designer yet, I studied about it for a while (more related to film rather than fashion).
Alexander, the King of fashion. Period.
Crazy impossible designs, strange patterns, more impossible and stranger shoe forms. Generally speaking, there is something really dark in his designs, always playing with the limits. It only makes sense if we think that this man went through difficult times during his short life: drug and alcohol abuse, working in an hyper demanding job, friends’ betrayals. It all ended up the worse (inevitable?) way: with the tragic death of McQueen by commiting suicide. He was ONLY 41 years old… but left quite a legacy for us to admire.
Gareth is simply as nuts as many Brits I know, and that is precisely why I like him.
Where does all that creativity come from? GOSH. At least from: medieval times, nature, weed (?), and freedom! Gothic style and Black are definitely among my favourite concepts so maybe (only maybe) I am not being very objective on this one to be honest, but even still you cannot deny this British guy got talent…
I can only imagine these spectacular designs in movies like Alien, The Matrix or why not, The Cell.
JP is just… JEAN PAUL! I love his sense of humour and cheeky style. Some dresses made by him… OMG.. I could wear them everyday just to play cheeky too!
Pop culture, freedom, posh attitude. That versatility and irreverence are what I admire most about the terrible kid of France. Like Groucho Marx once said: “Humor is reason gone mad”.
And with JP, I couldn’t agree more.
