alexander mcqueen f/w 2006 ‘the widows of culloden’: “Scotland for me is a harsh, cold and bitter place. It was even worse when my great, great grandfather used to live there… . The reason I’m patriotic about Scotland is because I think it’s been dealt a really hard hand. It’s marketed the world over as … haggis … bagpipes. But no one ever puts anything back into it.” - alexander mcqueen )( Radical! )( #xplayr_it )
