With a bad-boy reputation and past shows akin to drastic seasonal mood swings, Alexander McQueen’s fall runway marked a renaissance of spirit and a return to his love of fashion. So says a profile of the designer in the June issue of W magazine. The fascinating look at England’s king of style walks through the last year of McQueen’s life and how it influenced his critically acclaimed fall 2008 collection. The profile has a great selection of images from the runway show as well as a look at McQueen’s new Melrose store. And if you can’t wait for fall, the McQ spring collection should hold you over. The streetwise styles with just a whiff of rebellion are the picture of avant-garde style.
