Alexander McQueen’s Controversial "Highland Rape" Show - #TBT with Tim Blanks - Style.com

283 ratings | 25798 views
Tim Blanks revisits Alexander McQueen’s Fall 1995 show, “Highland Rape,” which introduced the world not only to the designer’s trademark bumster pants, but also to his fierce national pride. The models’ torn garments and bloodied bodies ignited a fury, but this was no endorsement of rape, it was an exploration of Scotland’s turbulent history with England.

Thank you so much for the Alexander McQueen!! I'd love to see more of his early shows. There is still a huge void left in the fashion world since he's been gone.

I appreciate McQueen's talent but it frustrates me that everyone seems to ignore the fact that a lot of what he did had already been done by others before him, most notably Galliano, Westwood, Mugler and Gaultier.

But what matters most was his OWN thoughts n inspirations which was planted into the his collections.

+Justice J. Srisuk I think that Galliano's scandalous fall from grace also had the effect of the credit for some of Galliano's innovations being transferred to McQueen. So much of what Galliano did surfaced in McQueen's collections seasons or even years later.

I agree, even as a fan of the late Mr. McQueen's brand of perverse genius. Perhaps his work has been coloured by his personal struggles and eventual suicide. Think of the way the grunge movement/music/scene is so defined by Kurt Cobain. Dying young and tragically immortalizes artists for all of eternity.

if your new in the industry you need to do something like this but your workmanship to your craft must be impeccable

I think that fashion still has the power to provoke but people react to it in such (i.e: think is a lazy gimmick) ways to it that it's really not worth the fight...

Mcqueen! A TBT favourite indeed! We absolutely need more controversial and thought provoking shows these days. More mcqueen (and galliano) pls!!!

Lee will always be my favourite, 20 years ago this was a strong show, ahead of its time, keep bringing him on TBT, dear Tim do an episode with the S/S 2005 collection, the one with the chess theme.

Thanks Tim Blanks! I am loving #TBT season 2

I always appreciated a runway show with a real story, and one that you could grasp without reading the program was even better. As far as fashion with teeth...I'm not a fan of angry or upsetting stories, so because of this, I don't like that in fashion either.

Fashion has not been the same ever since McQueen.
