Alexander McQueen: Romantic Nationalism

The third installment of my sit-down with Andrew Bolton spotlights the portion of the catalogue and exhibit entitled Romantic Nationalism. This theme, again, focuses on McQueen’s love of history, specifically his Scottish heritage and homeland of England. The 18th century-inspired dress Sarah Jessica Parker wore to the MET Gala 5 years ago as McQueen’s date has returned to the museum in this section as well as countless pieces from his Fall/Winter 2008 collection entitled The Girl Who Lived In The Tree. I can’t wait to see the Kate Moss hologram along side the runway version of the dress she wore and the featured collection, Highland Rape.
