Enough With The Alexander McQueen Tribute Products

That fashion designer Alexander McQueen committed suicide earlier this year was tragic enough. That a group of vultures are using his death to line their pockets with cash is plain sickening. It’s one thing when a trendsetting and chic magazine like Visionaire pays homage to the designer by devoting an entire issue to his iconic frocks. It’s quite another when a nail polish manufacturer uses the McQueen name to hawk a set of hideous, muddy-looking shades. That’s what Butter London has done with a line of new polishes it claims were inspired by McQueen: All Hail McQueen, a hideous taupe, Bumster, which looks like something you’d find in a diaper, Marrow, marrow, really?, and Victoriana, a bluish-green that’s neither here not there. All one has to do is take a cursory look at these polishes to see they have nothing to do with McQueen’s genius. What this company has done is attached some over-written copy and a sick idea to a product-like-any-other in order to sell their load of crap. It’s bad enough that McQueen is gone, but to associate his brilliance with this drivel is to degrade the fashion legacy he created. [Hot Beauty Health]
