Alexander McQueen Hearts Keith Harring
I was thrilled to see the latest McQ collection by Alexander McQueen. The collection is not explicit, but at glance it's an homage to Keith Harring in powerful yet subtle ways.
Haring's bold lines and active figures carry poignant messages of vitality and unity, and bring something so iconic to the McQ collection.
Specifically, The iconic "squiggles" of Harring's art are used as the prints for many pieces of the collection.
Harring's legacy made an impact on late 20th century art, and it's moving to see his influence in a vision for the future.
