Tragic news: Alexander McQueen dies in his London home after committing suicide on February 12 2010. We pay tribute to Britain’s most influential design icon.


The daring and experimental fashion designer Alexander McQueen has flown the nest of his spacious four-storey East London house for a different runway. Maybe he thinks his house is, like, so last season, but with a price tag of £1.7 million it’s obviously still a must have property:

McQueen had the entire house designed by British architect David Adjaye who definitely favours a more subtle and unembellished aesthetic to the theatrical inventions of the fashion designer. There’s a lot of white, wooden and built-in fixtures but there is scope to work with. The 2,957 square foot property is obviously spacious, with two large and one small bedroom, three bathrooms including a wet room as well as an outdoor hot tub. And with no less than two kitchens there’s plenty of room to make fashionable feasts for dinner parties. In the first floor kitchen the whiter than white cabinets and work surface of the central island, above, match the high white walls. Invite trendy, chic and rich guests to those dinner soirees…

McQueen’s bed, sofa, TV etc are all anchored into position which certainly limits the buyer’s creativity. As with most living rooms the sofa faces the TV – again built-in and surrounded by built-in shelves from floor to ceiling.  McQueen has a couple quirky horned ceiling lights and lamps dotted around to break up all the smooth lines. Steal his style with a Horn lamp (£78) from Juliette Interiors, which has antlers surrounding the base. Sure to stand out!

Like everything else, the sofa is white and mydeco would just love to chuck some bright cushions and throws around it! Graham and Green have silk taffeta cushions (£28), above, in a range of bright and pastel shades.
