Fashion Spotlight: R.I.P. Alexander McQueen

Lee McQueen - Concerned
Michael Oliveira-Salac says McQueen “turned fashion upside down”, by being different. (BBC News)

Once again we are reminded of how limited the time we have on this green globe labeled Earth can actually be. Yesterday the realm of fashion lost another icon by the name Lee Alexander McQueen, (16 March 1969 – 11 February 2010). McQueen was an English fashion designer known for his unorthodox designs and outlandish runway shows.
News has it that his mother had just passed away and he was going through a difficult time coping as he was extremely close to his mother.  Although his Twitter account has been deleted you can view it here, where he expressed himself in his final tweets.
If you are fashion illiterate, you might recognize some of his work donned by Rihanna & even more noteworthy: Lady Gaga. The critically acclaimed UK fashion designer earned the esteemed British Fashion Designer of the Year award four times!
I found out about the tragic news via my pal Sash’s Facebook post as soon as I got home it REALly saddened my night believe it or not. I am very much into fashion and very familiar with his eccentric work. ‘Tis life, we celebrate life so let us not mourn death, but celebrate the legacy of one whom is deceased so that that individual may live on forever through our work, in our thoughts and so on & so forth.  Just like the legendary and very much so iconic Yves Saint Laurent, Mr. Lee Alexander McQueen will most certainly be missed.

Supra Skytop II

Supra does a DOPE feature in collaboration with COMPLEX in their Feb. 09 issue. The feature depicts sexy women sporting the even sexier shoes. The Sneaker Guide includes a first look at the Spring ‘10 colorways in the second coming of Chad Muska’s signature shoe featured here in its navy/gold colorway. It’s even higher, slimmer, & I think even more futuristic while keeping it pain and simple. The tongue is reminiscent of the Air Jordan VI also slated to drop Jan. of this year.
What a way to bring in the NEW YEAR, with NEW gear! 8 )

Ronnie Fieg x Polo Ralph Lauren “Cookie Boot”

Ronnie-Fieg-Polo

If you were a certified POLO wearer back in the late 80s-early 90s then you know the Ralph Lauren Polo Ranger Boot also better known affectionately as the “Cookie Boot” was an imperative part of your wardrobe. I was way too young as I am in fact proud to be an 86’er, growing up in the 90s I fell madly in LOVE with anything Ralph Lauren. The designs were illustrious, fancy colors, but sporty. Wearing brands like POLO SPORT made me feel like a skier, hiker, sportsman (with the Sportsman line) or a triumphant champion of the Olympics. I always wanted the Cookie Boots, but I never had the chance to get them until recently when they were actually re-released earlier last year after years of wondering why they weren’t prior to then. Well then, the boots are now back being sported by every young kid claiming to be a “Lo-Head”. Tsk-Tsk.
Ronnie Fieg is back with another special make-up on this boot, just in time for winter. This “Cookie Boot” marks Fieg’s first collaboration with Polo. This boot is available at David Z locations and online at David Z.com.
