Usually when an artist dies, the value of his work shoots up faster than Amy Winehouse on a Saturday night. When the fashion world lost Alexander McQueen last month, it was one of its greatest loses in recent times. Even if the house continues, it certainly won’t be the same without the brilliance of its namesake.
While not everyone has enough bank to buy a McQueen original, this (dare we say, commemorative?) T-shirt might fit your budget. From the same collection that brought you those reptilian print dresses and the armadillo Lady Gaga shoes, this skull T-shirt isn’t just a piece of clothing, but a piece of iconography. We’re serious. —Adrien Field
