earlier today, Alexander McQueen was doing a live stream of his fashion show for the Spring/Summer 2010 line. UNFORTUNATELY...i guess so many people wanted in that I couldn't see it live.
I just did.
I've cried before at his shows that you can find online.
So I was stoked for this one. But, I wasn't as overwhelmed as I thought I would be. Still really amazing though.
It was on Showstudio and the McQueen website. Check it out.
All I have to say is...the answer to metallic (which i'm sick of)...IRIDESCENT!!!
No photos I can readily find online. So check out the last look. I'm drooling.
Oh! Here's my little take on the collection -
Titled "Plato's Atlantis" for the S/S 2010 woman's wear
If you remembered the title and read a few reviews, you knew it was like this future island and you went through all the inhabitants with a big brother type eye on the people.
I definitely got the 'here are the animals/natives' then the 'people who worked at like the lab/quarentined area' then the 'people in charge a little on the military side' and wrapped up with 'alien visitors'
The shoes for the beginning - holy shit. they were like the ballet toe fetish heeled shoes in their shape (especially from the side and back) but were platforms. Check it. It's funny - focus also on the models' facial expressions, you can see the stress of 'don't fall don't fall don't fall.' Poor girls (but that's why they get paid beacoup bucks)
