Watch Nick Knight's Mesmerizing Tribute to Alexander McQueen

by Victoria Lin


With the closing of the Alexander McQueen retrospective Savage Beauty at the Victoria and Albert Museum yesterday, fashion photographer Nick Knight has released a tribute of his own. Knight, a longtime McQueen collaborator whose relationship with the late designer spanned 14 years, dug into the archives of their work together to create a haunting short film using previously unseen footage from 2010's "To Lee, With Love, Nick." With curation by current McQueen creative director Sarah Burton and input from W's Fashion & Style Director Edward Enninful, the famous duck feather dress makes an appearance (but the armadillo boots, sadly, do not) in a film that's a surreal, mesmerizing look at the best work of a brilliant mind gone too soon. Watch it above.
