A seminal piece in the collection was the Bird’s Nest Headdress, created by London jeweler Shaun Leane and famed milliner Philip Treacy—members of McQueen’s “Fashion Family”. The creative trifecta developed a beautiful piece that spans art, fashion and jewelry. The Bird’s Nest Headdress is on display at the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibition at London’s V&A museum. The piece is part of the Cabinet of Curiosities which showcases the “monumental Gothic fairytale” creations of Alexander McQueen.
