Alexander McQueen - Savage Beauty
 “I do know, though, that this book pulls off something kind of extraordinary: convincing me not only that McQueen deserved a posthumous retrospective at the Met but also that McQueen was as pure and complete an artist as ever lived. He’s Miles Davis. He’s Van Gogh. McQueen was everything an artist should be: endlessly innovative, aware of the past and concerned for the future, literate, tireless, deeply invested in the act of making with one’s hands. His work is personal, born out of his own passions, sexuality, nationality, tragedy. It transcends fashion.”
