Manhattan – Meatpacking District
417 W 14th St (at Washington St.)
Manhattan, NY 10014
Much of McQueen's genius design feels ethereal and slightly dangerous, from his signature skull pattern to the wonderfully strange "armadillo" shoes from his spring 2010 collection—the final one before his death in February—and the design of the New York City flagship store itself. McQueen collaborated with Pentagram Architects to create the concept shop, which features white walls with organic curves, and clean cutouts for shelving and halogen spotlights. The clothes are bold and beautifully tailored. Fans gathered in mourning at the Meatpacking District store as news of McQueen's death spread. The brand, however, carries on under new creative director Sarah Burton.
