Can I take a moment to mourn the death of Alexander McQueen?
(Sorry, btw, that this seems to be turning into a fashion blog lately! I tend to get obsessed with random things for periods of time, and right now this is it. I promise non-design stuff soon!)
His Spring 2010 ready to wear collection blew my mind. The idea was, to quote style.com,
"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."
The more reptilian side of the collection didn't appeal to me much, but the sea side...
The hair and makeup had me totally convinced that these guys live in the depths of the sea.
The Little Mermaid WISHES she had these shoes!
And THESE are my new obsession:
My heart still belongs to the Ann Demeulemeester Fall 2008 triple lace boots, but if these found their way into my life, I think we could be very happy together. I wonder how tall those would make me?
I got so excited scrolling through the pictures of this collection that I momentarily forgot WHY I was digging up picture for this post. I found myself excited to see what would come next, but of course, there is no next. Sadness.
Check out past Alexander McQueen collections here. And then slip into a pair of shoes that look like bedazzled armadillos to mourn.
