The Vornheim fall collection

Vornheim is a decadent, weird place.

I don’t know anything about fashion, but today I cataloged a fairly strange fashion book by the late Alexander McQueen.  Very odd, otherworldly, even Medieval stuff, IMO, and this is the kind of stuff I can see well-to-do ladies (or maybe assassins, librarians, temple virgins, etc.) in Vornheim wearing.

I should probably just let Zak provide the captions — and he can GIS ‘alexander mcqueen savage beauty’ on his own if he wants to expand this on his blog — but here are some interesting ones.

My favorite

  1. I picked up the pdf Vornheim last week, and have only been able to get through a few pages – my fault, not the text’s – but like what I’ve read so far. It’s terribly creative, and I mean that as a high compliment. Over the years I’ve seen many recycled ideas, and I suppose I’ve recycled a few too, but Zak’s Vornheim is brilliantly original. I love the snake-skin-reading-globes. Maybe I’ll post up a review some day, although I image Vornheim has already received some very positives write-ups.

  2. Nice! Very cool stuff. Sometimes being a librarian has its unexpected pleasures.

  3. When he died all my model friends were twitting about it and I learned who he was. I also suddenly realized that “Mad About McQueen” billboard that I kept seeing on 3rd avenue wasn’t about Steve McQueen.

  4. McQueen is amazing, and that book is gorgeous. Highly recommended.
