2.0 out of 5 stars Visually stunning, verbally week, 29 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a devout fan of the late Mr. McQueen, I will gladly collect as many books as I can on his work. So please understand the photography in this book is great, even though it could probably be found anywhere on the internet from resources that provide raw runway coverage. Visually, A great trip back through his career for sure.
However, the written description of each collection is a recap of model's names "sashaying down the runway" about sums up the books take on the designs seen within. Don't expect a industry's insider delving further to explore the collections in a new light, instead maybe stacked high on tables at your local Urban Outfitters for a quick sale.
After looking at the author's list of literary contributions inside the back cover, it leaves you to wonder if this was written simply to capitalize on McQueens work instead of coming from a place of authority or respect and admiration.
