Dramatic. Intense. Fanciful. Edgy. Ethereal. Magnificent. Breathtaking.

    Nice images and all but not being able to turn off the looped video at the top while I’m reading the page is highly annoying. I wonder if they thought about that when it was created.

    These are fabulous. Deep and dark but still enchanting.

    Reminds me a lot of the Savage Beauty exhibit (especially the animation), which I also thought was extremely well done. I just saw it last weekend.

    It’s so McQueen! I love it. There’s such a feeling that you’ve been transporting fully into Lee’s world. He’d be so proud. Sarah Burton did such a commendable job with this collection and the campaign team showcased it perfectly.

    The animation just clinches it, I hadn’t seen that before. Gorgeous!

    I think they’re fantastic! I love the dark element. Some of them remind me of posters for a movie.

    Ugh…it’s just so brilliant. I’ve been a fan of McQueen for so long, and even after his death, his collections never cease to amaze. I love the photography and imagery behind this campaign. It’s mystically beautiful.
