The Stages of Alexander McQueen: S/S 1997 La Poupée

Alexander McQueen, S/S 1997 La Poupée

”The original idea was when Jesus walked on water but then it sort of lost the plot a bit and went somewhere else…”
This show was made with rather small means, working together with Simon Costin, using a shallow tank and Perspex wedge shoes. The collection was very much about restrictions of the body and of fashion, while amplifying different parts of the body with the help of accessory designer Shaune Leane.
