Anne Deniau was a friend of McQueen’s. She’s been taking pictures of McQueen and his work for years. The “Best of” her photos will be now published under a title “Love Looks Not With the Eyes”. A sentence that McQueen had tattooed.
Telegraph has already dealt with the issue in a wonderful article on a book, its author and the genius of McQueen. A phrase by Deniau about McQueen, that we especially liked:
‘People say he turned fashion into art but that is wrong. He was an artist and fashion was his medium; that is different.’
The book will cost 29,00 pounds and can be acquired per pre-order in Telegraph Bookshop. More information about McQueen and his photographer in: Immortalising McQueen: photographer Anne Deniau remembers designer in new book.

A few years ago, streetstyle-experts started wearing their jackets or coats around their shoulders, instead of putting their arms through their sleeves. The technical term for that is ‘coat slinging’.
Recently, the german newspaper BUNTE (!) reported about the styling-trend. ‘Coat slinging’ therefore officially became a ‘no-go’. So: dear friends with good taste, please stick your arms in your sleeves from now on.
Because a sleeve without an arm, is like Justin O’Shea without Veronika, like Cara Delevigne without eyebrows: somehow not complete.
In 2008, Scott Schuman (aka: The Sartorialist) has revealed the first case of ‘coat slinging’ on his blog, afterwards an epidemic broke out, from which the fashion-world still has not recovered.
It has been enough: put your jackets on properly again! Otherwise you appear like a gay fashion-journalist from 2010 (who would put his arms into sleeves nowadays)
