It’s not that I don’t like you, I’m just tryna pass the time… going through my closets finding clothes that poets rhyme…

One of the reasons why McQueen’s collections often were so hard to watch is that they often channeled our cultural anxieties and uncertainties, and that was very much part of his raison d’être.

Long Live McQueen… Thank G*d he bathed the scene… #amenfashion
