Magnificence

Alexander McQueen Multicolour-Crystal Gold Angel Wing Shoe

I thought that my first entry should be a tribute to Alexander McQueen and the most amazing pair of shoes I have ever seen- the Multicolour- Crystal Gold Angel Wing Shoe. These are one of four pairs of shoes he designed before his death earlier this year, and although he never saw them make the catwalk, they were exhibited in a private showing. Inspired by the dark ages, the detailing, the embellishment and gilding really honour them as a work of art- truly magnificent.
