This spring, London’s Victoria and Albert Museum will be the site of a new version of “Savage Beauty,” the 2011 blockbuster Alexander McQueen exhibit that remains the Met Costume Institute’s most attended show. Today, British Vogue has some details on what we can expect. This incarnation will include a room themed around McQueen’s early career in London. Also on display will be the hologram of Kate Moss that the designer famously showed on the runway for fall 2006 in response to the supermodel’s cocaine scandal — this time, life-size instead of the miniature version from the Met. Over 30 new pieces will be included, among them a red dress from his The Girl Who Lived in the Tree Collection for fall 2008, and a white feathered stunner from fall 2009’s Horn of Plenty show. The Cabinet of Curiosities accessories segment will also get an expansion, with 40 new pieces from McQueen collaborators to be displayed. The designer’s runway production company, Gainsbury and Whiting, is assisting with the staging of the exhibit, so it ought to be the perfect destination for McQueen completists.
