Visitors to Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty will be offered a limited edition poster, shot by Knight, which features a red-headed winged model wearing a crystal-embellished catsuit from McQueen’s Spring/Summer 2004 ‘Deliverance’ collection.
The poster is presented as a wraparound cover for the booklet, which was created by Swarovski as a lasting memento of the exhibition.
Swarovski has also partnered with technology experts Blippar, adding a layer of augmented reality to enhance the experience. Readers simply download the Blippar app and hover their phone over the images found in the exhibition booklet and AnOther magazine to unlock special film content.
“We are delighted to have collaborated with the creative talents of Nick Knight and Katy England in bringing these amazing images to life. Using the Blippar app is an exciting way to explore some of the stunning looks Lee McQueen created using Swarovski crystal during our many years of collaboration. It’s the perfect souvenir for this important homecoming exhibition, which we’re so proud to be supporting,” said Executive Board Member Nadja Swarovski.
The full shoot, accompanied by Susannah Frankel's reflective essay on Lee McQueen in the Spring/Summer 2015 issue of AnOther Magazine, is available at AnOthermag.com. Visit Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty to pick up Swarovski’s exhibition booklet and poster.
