5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB VIEWPOINT INTO MCQUEEN'S WORLD, 19 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beautiful insight into the diverse world of McQueen. The author depicts a genuine care and fascination with the subjects and collaborators and allows the reader into that world with care and reverence. As a owner of all the other McQueen books on the market, this one is now one of the absolute best that has been published. The details and variety outshine various other publications on the subject of the designer, separating it from a generic photo stock reprint. The finishing and detail of the book itself also feels quite special. Finally, the index provides great reference points for true fans. Well done Mr Fairer!

2.0 out of 5 stars Visually stunning, verbally week, 29 Sept. 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.
