Alexander McQueen

We’ve been thinking a lot about Alexander McQueen these days.  Kate Middleton not only recently tied the knot with her prince in a house of McQueen dress by Sarah Burton, but also feted her marriage in another McQueen dress the following day. (Even Pippa wore McQueen!)

And New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art has launched a notable retrospective of Alexander McQueen’s work entitled Savage Beauty whose run needed to be extended due to popular demand.

UPDATE: McQueen designer Burton just won CFDA’s 2011 Designer of the Year award on Monday, and lady gaga just revealed via facebook that her song “Fashion of his Love” is about none other than, you guessed it, Alexander McQueen.

We are lucky to have a few Alexander McQueen pieces that were designed and produced during the designers lifetime still available at our West Hollywood store.

These frames are classic.  Very wearable and with spring hinges extremely comfortable, too.

A smart McQueen “c-Q” temple detail is a logo you just don’t see everyday.

We have this frame in black, tortoise and also a striking blue-grey with dark grey wood-grain textured temples.

These McQueen sunglasses are an affordable and accessible entree into one of the great designers of our time.
