|Lee Alexander McQueen, 1969 – 2010. A fashion film by Nick Night|
Nick Knight brings us more Alexander McQueen in the form of a short film, “Lee Alexander McQueen, 1969 – 2010.” The recent Savage Beauty exhibit reignited our appreciation of the designer’s work (as our Instagram followers know). We only managed to see the show a few times and were sad to see it close. Even as the fashion world changes and evolves, McQueen’s vision remains singularly brilliant and complex.
Knight, together with filmmaker Younji Ku and art director Jon Emmony, has created a montage of ShowStudio’s archive footage of the late Lee Alexander McQueen’s creations, for a film called “Lee Alexander McQueen, 1969-2010.” Knight has taken footage of some of McQueen’s most striking looks — among them a red feathered dress from his spring 2001 show, and a sculptural hound’s tooth outfit from his fall 2009 collection — and has heightened the looks’ impact by distorting the footage and embellishing it with 3-D animation.
