Eshu, Alexander McQueen F/W 2000

This was McQueen’s first collection that was shown in Paris (instead of London). It was inspired by the pre-colonial Yoruba tribe of West Africa, mixing tribal details with luxurious fabrics to emphasize the raw power of clothes. The models wore heavy steel piercings and their hairlines were dusted with yellow powder. The clothes were mud-spattered, glass-beaded and shredded, the materials being a variety of leathers, horsehair, and cotton.
