Lee once said 'This world I live in, this fashion world I live in, is so unrelated to the world outside, so I take parts of the world that people don't see and bring it to them.' His final show in Paris 2009 was a beautiful metamorphosis. McQueen was an avid bird watcher as a child and an accomplished scuba diver in his adulthood and it feels like nature's wing has been intrinsically stitched into each design. Pieces that are so exquisite , yet ultimately very appealing as ready-to-wear. ( Well maybe not the armadillos) Particular pieces make you want to ca coon yourself within them, snuggle almost. Teamed with extreme heels and torpedo-like hair structure (along with prosthetic face-pieces) finish the look.
