Sarah Burton took New York Times fashion critic and noted sassbag Cathy Horyn on a tour of the Alexander McQueen atelier and the label’s gorgeous marine-inspired spring 2012 collection.
The two ladies wax rhapsodic over McQueen’s legacy, the intricacy of the garments’ construction and staying true to the McQueen woman in Diving for McQueen, Dustin Lynn‘s short film for Nowness.com. Lynn’s exploration of the diaphanous dresses through extreme close-up evokes a couture Cousteau while offering a rare glimpse into one of fashion’s greatest wonderlands. [Nowness]
