Alexander McQueen Home

the grotesque is beautiful

 

The Alexander McQueen Home Line packaging includes a plate set, a table runner and a candle. And like McQueen's runway shows, the message behind the packaging is strong and inspired by nature, art, and the inferior. Pigeons are known for their scavenger nature, and have a quite a crummy reputation for it. However, pigeons are in actuality brave, strong, and one of the world's most intelligent creatures in the world. They also symbolize peace, gentleness and love in Greek mythology. This collection is meant to motivate the viewer to rethink the concept of beauty, to re-examine their opinions and prejudices within society. Then come back and look at things with a fresh perspective.
