Fashion Week begins today, and Alexander McQueen is dead. The British designer killed himself at age 40, days after the death of his mother. This is sad for a whole bunch of reasons, one of them being that his runway shows in Paris every year were deliciously twisted spectaculars. (Last fall’s featured a taxidermized menagerie, and McQueen took his bow in a bunny suit.) When not dressing Sarah Jessica Parker, Lady Gaga (see shoes, left) and gazillions of other celebs, McQueen also did more accessible collabos for Puma and Target. We wanted to mark his death with a Brokelyn-style fashion retrospective. Here’s some of what you can buy from Alexander McQueen (no authenticity promises) on eBay today:
Gladiator boots in a ladies’ size 7. Bids start at $365
A springy yellow trench (coat? dress?) with an eyelet hem. Buy now for $225.
Crazy! “Scythe” sneaker shoes in size 44.
His signature skull scarf with a Barneys tag for $85. Hmmm… unless we buy it first. Will it appreciate?
One smart-looking green leather biker jacket. Starting bid $1,295.
