Alexander McQueen -- A Jouney Into Space.
This collection was so strong. It seemed to tell a story of lost alien girls that land on Earth. They are lost, they are alone, they are hungry (if they eat) but one thing they do have are marvelously draped dresses of all sorts of prints. Some prints were scales, others just shapes that were bent, twisted, and ruched to create minidresses in powerful asymmetric shapes. The main colors used were blue, green, brown, and yellow.
The shoes were the best that I had ever seen. The armadillo, my favorite, is so elegant in an odd and unimaginable way. The slithering bone heel (as I like to call it) is a work of art. Twists and turns and carved details. The thought that I had in my mind when I first saw them was: "I wonder where those shoes would take me if I put them on?" It is almost to much to take in, how can your eyes take all of the colors, shapes, shoes, and aliens all at once? You may need some recovery time after you watch the video...its like winning the lottery 5 times over.
Please forgive me, Phoebe Philo, your Celine collection was my favorite of the season. But, can I put McQueen up there with Celine? It's only fair. Thank you, thank you!
Breath in, breath out...again. Wow. Amazing. inhale. exhale. If any of you see one of those beautiful aliens walk by, would you ask them if a 13 year old fashion nerd could come home with them? Thanks, that would be great!
