MCQUEEN’S MOVEMENT: Another Magazine on Monday showcased “Movement,” its series of films in collaboration with London contemporary dance theater Sadler’s Wells, on its Web site anothermag.com. The films, which Another premiered at Sadler’s Wells last weekend, are collaborations between designers, choreographers and directors that fuse film, fashion and dance. As part of the project, supported by the Ford Vignale brand, the labels Alexander McQueen, Prada, Chalayan, Gareth Pugh, Calvin Klein Collection, Iris Van Herpen and Stephen Jones Millinery each designed costumes for a different choreographed performance.
The Alexander McQueen film is titled “Pointe,” and depicts dancer Marie-Agnès Gillot – who wears a black lace Alexander McQueen gown – performing in a spot-lit, industrial space to the beat of British drummer George Barnett’s set. Daniel Askill directed the shadowy film, with styling by Karen Langley, while Gillot performed and choreographed the piece. Commenting on the film, the title’s fashion team said that Gillot’s “physical expression of fragility and strength echoes [Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah] Burton’s delicate take on the McQueen aesthetic.”
