McQueen - Winter/Fall 2011

This look, simplistic in cut, yet exquisite in silver-embroidered detail, radiates the ethereal beauty of an angel as depicted in traditional Catholic imagery. The model's head is bound with bandages, a move which at once references McQueen's legendary Spring/Summer 2001 Asylum collection whilst also nodding towards the head coverings donned by modest women in Northern European medieval and Renaissance portraiture, such as Johannes Vermeer's 1665 masterpiece, Girl with a Pearl Earring.
