Alexander McQueen

Today is a sad day for fashion.  This breaks my heart.  Lee Alexander McQueen has passed away at the super young age of 40.  Here is a statement from the home site:

ON BEHALF OF LEE MCQUEEN’S FAMILY, ALEXANDER MCQUEEN TODAY ANNOUNCES THE TRAGIC NEWS THAT LEE MCQUEEN, THE FOUNDER AND DESIGNER OF THE ALEXANDER MCQUEEN BRAND HAS BEEN FOUND DEAD AT HIS HOME. AT THIS STAGE IT IS INAPPROPRIATE TO COMMENT ON THIS TRAGIC NEWS BEYOND SAYING THAT WE ARE DEVASTATED AND ARE SHARING A SENSE OF SHOCK AND GRIEF WITH LEE’S FAMILY.

Although he has worked for huge fashion houses like Gucci, making usually women’s clothing I will always remember McQueen for his amazing kicks for men.  Some of his creations for Puma are on my shortlist for favourite footwear.  Here’s a peek at some of the creations from the house of McQueen:
