Nick Knight, of “Bound 2” fame (uh uh, honey), is back with a short film honoring his friend and fashion phenom, the late Alexander McQueen. Meant to serve as an add-on to Knight’s full-length 2011 tribute, To Lee, With Love, Nick, the video is a hauntingly beautiful montage of models moving in McQueen creations. The women perform like sci-fi ballerinas – graceful and elegant but otherworldly and slightly sinister.
It’s McQueen’s genius deigns that take center stage against the dark backdrop of course. His dresses are dramatic, sculptural pieces of art – at home both on a pedestal in a museum or on the lithe frame of a top model. It is obvious looking at the feathers. leather, corseting, and draping that McQueen’s understanding of a woman’s body is unparalleled and that his instinct for design unmatched. Knight expertly captures that talent and brings it to life in this touching film. [h/t thecreatorsproject.vice.com]
