Alexander McQueen’s Savage Beauty exhibit

I have always enjoyed exhibits related to fashion, and I was not only taken by the Gladiator-style Alexander McQueen designs in this particular showcase, but also by the choice to place these items in mirrored boxes. There is something modern, almost cold, about the exhibition, but the choice allows for the soft pastel colors in the clothes to seem that much more feminine.

It feels like the contrast really brings out what the actual pieces represent. It’s like ancient Rome meets 2011, and the masculinity of the designs with the choice of soft, feminine colors offers an interesting juxtaposition. Savage Beauty is the perfect title. The exhibit is currently at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art
