Inspired By: Friends
Alexander McQueen possessed an unrivaled imagination, finding inspiration in subjects as varied as Alien, Charles Darwin and Harry Potter. But in an interview with Lane Crawford, his successor, Sarah Burton, revealed that the late designer had an unlikely design inspiration: Joey Tribbiani. "I remember him saying to me, 'I watched Friends last night, did you see the shirt that Joey was wearing?” she said. "But then, he would get a Van Eyck book out, so it was this kind of mad mix…He had this way of making you look at everything for inspiration."
