Déjà Vu: Cascading Curves

One turn, or in this case, curve of genius deserves another.

Playing on a curve at Alexander McQueen FW09

When I saw this look from Alexander McQueen’s Fall 09 collection last year, I couldn’t help but think that it reminded me of the work of another man who likes to play with curves – Frank Gehry.

Gehry’s Wiggle Chair

McQueen, who shaped and drew and cut fabric as his artist’s material of choice, cannot be replaced in this life.

His works may not have the physical solidity of a building or structure, but they will certainly be housed in museums for thousands of years to come – maybe even those museums designed by Mr. Gehry.
