When I asked my scientist friend what associations does he have with a skull, he replied: „The natural protection of the brain!” A fellow writer vividly talked about pirates and motorcycle gangs. My female friends said in chorus: „A skull? Alexander McQueen!” I fully agree: Alexander McQueen caused that the skull is no longer the exclusive domain of pirates, bikers and Shakespearean theatres. From the boutiques of Mayfair and Bond Street to the stores in Shanghai it is present as a fashion must-have. So let’s tame the skulls and enjoy them. As Alexander McQueen!
