  • SS14 Alexander McQueen Skull Trompe L’Oeil Longsleeve Shirt


    Alexander McQueen is an artist that successfully distinguished the line between artistry and modern couture. Rooted from humble beginnings, the British designer began his namesake in 1992, experimenting with tailored seams and reworked silhouettes. Slowly allowing himself to push unspoken boundaries further and further, McQueen liberated his creative ability in an electric manner, scaling technical feats without remorse. In doing so, the creative indulged a generation in diversity and rebellion—maintaining theatrics while testing the grips of fashion. He revolutionized the way we as viewers perceive, turning the base form of wearable art into an experience.


    The skull motif remains a signature of Alexander McQueen’s eponymous label, said to represent the “fragility of creation” in parallel to the gruesome mortality of death. McQueen loved to frolic on the line of excess in opposition to elegance, often being the root to his forward thinking and boundary pushing. It was the true motivating factor of much of his work, to change perspectives, rework expectations and leave an untouched legacy. He did so with astonishing ease, cementing the skull as a symbol of his own. This longsleeve uses an art technique known as “Trompe L’Oeil” to simulate a 3D optical illusion. The graphic wraps around the entire piece, following down the sleeves and towards the bottom hem as well. The focal skull seems to pop out towards the viewer, encapsulating them in, once again - an experience. Tagged as a size large, in pristine condition with light use throughout.
