In Erotica: The Spine Corset for Alexander McQueenJuxtapoz // Monday, 30 May 2011
This was Shaun Leane for Alexander McQueen, Spine Corset, Spring/Summer 1998 Aluminum and black leather. Said McQueen to Harper’s Bazaar, April 2007, “I find beauty in the grotesque, like most artists. I have to force people to look at things."
As Shaun Leane states, "He was always fascinated by the spine. So he asked me to create a corset, which was the spine with the rib cage, so that the girl could actually wear this as a corset on the outside of her body, so we would see the beauty of these bone structures on the outside, attached to the dress."
