Alexander McQueen SS 2010


I know its been said before but he truly is Alexander the Great!
McQueen is a master of theatrics and here he created a story about transformation while transforming the way we view fashion- by streaming the show live on SHOWstudio.com
From Style.Com:
McQueen, according to an internal logic detailed in a press release, was casting an apocalyptic forecast of the future ecological meltdown of the world: Humankind is made up of creatures that evolved from the sea, and we may be heading back to an underwater future as the ice cap dissolves.
Reptile prints dominated with moments of sleek leather and foamy sheer fabrics.
I love that he turned the human form into something grotesque (like the shoes that created a hoof/claw hybrid silhouette) but still found beauty in that form.

Some of the silhouettes may be a repeat but the collection felt more like a continuation than a rehash of the past.
Despite the drama he's still a superior craftsman, plus he makes a lot of his own materials, so everything is beautifully constructed and fitted. When the "show" is peeled away he's a master tailor and these pieces will sell.

You should. It is all very practical and comfortable. Especially for a med student in Iowa.
