In honour of the anniversary of Alexander McQueen’s death: Alexander McQueen S/S 1998 ‘Untitled’ in Nick Knight’s film: To Lee, With Love, Nick
Unlike Showstudio’s normally lengthy captions for Knight’s fashion films, the caption on his film ‘To Lee, With Love, Nick’ was one simple line that read: ‘Lee Alexander McQueen, 1969 - 2010’. The film was a tribute to the great designer’s life following his death, and Knight as a close friend of McQueen’s encapsulated his spirit in a video that reflected not only the heartbreaking tragedy of the moment but also the darkness that had resided in McQueen that had made him such a genius.
‘This film is my way of speaking about a very unique and important person who changed my life. My desire was to speak in some way about the dark and the light contained within Lee, and within us all.’ - Nick Knight
