Alexander McQueen’s most impressive collections-Fashion Trends
Scottish tartan, sheer fabric and McQueen’s iconic low-rise trousers are the collection’s staples.
Fall/Winter 1995, “Highland rape”
A collection inspired by England’s abuse of power over Scotland, “Highland Rape” is one of McQueen’s earliest and most controversial collections. Scottish tartan, sheer fabric and McQueen’s iconic low-rise trousers are the collection’s staples.
Fall/Winter 1996, “Dante”
A gothic Victorian collection held in a candlelit church, “Dante” features unique denim, an 18th-century-inspired corset, and a Jesus-shaped eye mask. If the drama of the London church scene wasn’t enough, another feature of the show is the skeleton sitting under the audience pew.
Spring/Summer 1997, “La Poupée”
Perhaps one of McQueen’s most groundbreaking shows was “La Poupée,” the French word for “Doll”. This collection, inspired by Hans Bellmer’s erotic doll art, builds on this concept with beautiful, sexy tailoring and models in metal cages. The silver accented eye makeup, as seen in Kate Moss, was referenced in the beauty world for the next several years.
Fall/Winter 1998, “Joan”
The tragic feminist in Joan of Arc history, “Joan” told a story of strength, martyrdom, and the Old World. Collection staples include leash-inspired mesh, Romanov-print suits, Queen Elizabeth I’s elongated forehead and dazzling red-eyed contact lenses. Since many of his collections are natural, “Joan” ends with a ring of fire surrounding a model.
Spring/Summer 1998, “Untitled”
Previously named “Golden Shower”, it was quickly renamed “Untitled” after causing controversy for its original title. McQueen famously showcased snakeskin, watermarks, sharp cuts, border details and dramatic black eyeliner in this show.
Spring/Summer 1999, “No. 13”
“Number 13” is a quintessential ’90s collection with a twist. A seemingly monochromatic collection of mesh dresses, shimmering gray satin, and elegant embroideries soon became a tech scene at the end of the show. Model Shalom Harlow’s strapless white dress, shot over a revolving door, was spray-painted by the robots activated at the end of the collection.
Spring/Summer 2001, “Voss”
In true performance art, “Voss” features models locked in glass cases as the audience watches from the outside. Some look reminiscent of a goth aesthetic and some are reminiscent of hospital wear, but overall the film is oddly ethereal; especially when Kate Moss opened the show on a whim.
Fall/Winter 2009, “Horn of Plenty”
“Horn of Plenty” is another controversial collection under McQueen. Whether it’s from plump sex doll lips to ostentatious houndstooth blooms to the huge pile of trash in the middle of the catwalk, there’s plenty of chatter about the “Horn of Plenty” scene.
Spring/Summer 2010, “Plato’s Atlantis”
“Plato’s Atlantis” was known to be a trend-setting collection in the early 2010s, when it introduced armadillo shoes, especially worn by Lady Gaga. Exploring the interplay between nature and technology, the puzzle pieces are of aliens and reptiles. The collection also holds a sad memory, as “Plato’s Atlantis” was McQueen’s last collection during his lifetime.
