McQueen’s Metalsmith Shaun Leane

If you are a McQueen maniac like moi, then you pay attention to every detail of every outfit on every one of his runways – and you’ve noticed the jewellery that complements his vision of the clothes so perfectly.

Those creations are by one, Shaun Leane, a McQueen collaborator for the past 15 years. B and I just about fell over when we saw some of his jewellery at the Museum at FIT’s Gothic:Dark Glamour exhibition last Fall.

Leane was interviewed by W mag recently for their blog feature: Five minutes with.

That bespoke piece he speaks of must be for Ms. Daphne Guinness, I’m guessing.

Leane’s work for McQueen was also featured at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 2001, as part of their Fashion in Motion series.
