Alexander McQueen Menswear Fall 2010
FWD has the goods:
“Rifling through United Kingdom traditions and history has always been a key element in Alexander McQueen’s vision of fashion, and it was again this season when the designer’s inspiration came from whalers and seafarers for his Fall 2010 men’s collection.”
“But McQueen, being of Scottish origin, is always more focused on the Celtic periphery than English center, so this collection actually had an Irish title, “An Bailitheoir Cnamh,” or The Bone Collector.”
We like. As FWD put it, “suits so strictly cut they looked like they had been engineered.” It’s that tight, world class tailoring that keeps the collection grounded even when Alexander decides to go off on flights of fancy. There are some beautiful pieces here and we love the wit behind the idea of a collection inspired by knits that highlights the inspiration through prints that look like knits rather than actual knitwear. Although we do love that skull and bones sweater. We could do without the fur epaulets and some of those prints look more like pigeon shit than ice, but overall it’s a visually interesting, technically flawless collection.
