McQueen is dead. Long live McQueen

It's hard to write something about somebody you've never met, and I don't want to say too much. This is a difficult time for the friends and family you leave behind, and it can't be any easier with the whole world watching: there's a time and a place for fashion reviews and it probably isn't now.
.
I've chosen the picture of the infamous armadillo shoe from the last collection because to me this sums up everything McQueen had done so far and everything we loved him for: breath taking, crazy, daring, beautiful, strangely delicate and feminine. I could've chosen a hundred catwalk pictures. I will use the word genius.
.
Love, Tor xx
