When it’s that time of year when all fashion shows unfold, it’s hard to keep track of all that’s going on, but the one designer I always make a point of checking is Alexander McQueen, who rarely fails to wow me.
His latest collection entitled Plato’s Atlantis was created to cast an apocalyptic forecast of the future ecological meltdown of the world. With humankind made up of creatures that evolved from the sea, McQueen used fashion to demonstrate how man may be heading back to an underwater future as the ice cap dissolves.
His fixation with intricate reptilian patterns is not new, but looking at his collection a few things rang a bell with me.
For my part I must say I detected quite a whiff of extraterrestrial mood in his makeup and shoe shape. Call me a geek (although I’m way more into Star Wars than into Star Trek), but I kept seeing Klingons, and elongated Alien heads everywhere!
Trend de la Creme collected a wonderful comparison between his frocks and actual insects in nature.
