Alexander McQueen's Last Interview


Alexander McQueen gave his last interview in January to fashion Journalist, Godfrey Deeny, for an issue of Australian Harper's Bazaar April 2010 Issue. Here's a few extracts from the interview.

Deeny on McQueen’s inspirations:
Lee’s two favourite sources are fine artists and TV, especially nature and science-fiction programs, which he plans to watch on ginormous flatscreens in his soon-to-be-completed new townhouse on Dunraven Street.

McQueen on his Spring/Summer 2010 collection:
“I got the idea for them from H.R. Giger, and seeing Alien, and then I got a sculptor to make up a shoe so that it looked like it grew right out of the foot. Sick, ain’t I?
“The whole show was metamorphic. It was the reversal of one before that, which was Charles Darwin with the evolution of the species. This was the reverse: instead of Darwin’s theary that we come from the sea, we made it that we come from the land and go back into the sea.”

McQueen on his own fashion sense:
“I know what I want to wear. I don’t want to stand out, wearing some that is asymmetric, and covered in dandelions.”
McQueen on his most recent boyfriend:
“A bastard who went back to Australia, and I was left looking at his name,” he grimaces, pointing to a name tattooed on his right arm. Which he then turns down when I try to read the moniker and keeps that way until the end of the meal.
McQueen on his work:
“I am married to work”, though id he wants to disparage someone he calls them a :stitch bitch”. Nor has he any interest in taking over another famed house such as Hermes or Chanel. “Been there, done that,” he remarks in reference to his stint at Givenchy which ended nearly a decade a ago.
