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 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
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.
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.
I have nothing bad to say about Chanel SS 2010.
I want to live and die in it!
Well, okay, I could have done without the platform clogs.
But I'm saving up for that sweet white bag!
Other than the odd Christmas decor I adored the set as I've always pictured myself at Le Petit Trianon!
Lily Allen, a face of Chanel, also performed while the girls walked the runway. If you haven't seen Lily live you definitely should! I saw her live back in March and she's amazing!

Alber Elbaz is one of my favorite designers but sometimes he can repeat himself.
It seems as though he's found his stride at Lanvin and now isn't willing to change the formula.
But that isn't a bad thing- the collection was precise, modest and beautiful- what more can you ask for?
"Marc Jacobs' spring/summer 2010 collection for the French house will be shown live on its Facebook page on Wednesday at 2.30 pm Paris time. Watchers will be able to comment live on the collection as it happens - a format that was successful at Burberry - and will also be able to watch the collection film on demand for 24 hours."

I'm not a huge Balmain fan...I've often felt that it belongs in the overrated category.
This season there was a lot of SEX and gold lame to try to get past. There was nothing subtle about this collection.
But if you could get past the in your face sex you could find the interesting pieces. Except that the interesting pieces were all looks that they had shown before except with a slightly more deconstructed, post-apocalyptic feel.
