Alexander McQueen premiered his s/s 10 women’s collection in paris with a live stream through SHOWstudio on october seventh. sadly i missed the live stream, but heard afterwards that SHOWstudio’s site might have been overwhelmed with viewers so the live stream might have not even happened. regardless if it did or not, i did see it the next day and was blown away. absolutely gorgeous and breathtaking, i was at awed with his prints, pattern and my god, those heels. with his slender and elegant group of models that bravely walked down the large and long futuristic catwalk. they systematically walked  with a mixture of minimal and drum and base music, rhythmically  alongside two gigantic robot arms that captured the audience and them as they showed off mcqueen’s latest masterpieces. i must admit after seeing his production other designers during paris fashion week and london fashion week did not match, although his collection was quite amazing the show production had definitely added (my god the money!) to the aesthetic of mcqueen’s show. not even Lily Allen, Rihanna or Prince can help you karl. although Chanel’s was quite cute and the collection did look great, but being more drawn to the futuristic, sci-fi aesthetic, i didn’t care much for the whole country feel.

plato’s atlantis was also the debut of pop diva Lady GaGa’s song “Bad Romance” which at first was kind of a musical shock to my ears firstly listening to drum and base, soon after i noticed my head nodding and my finger tips moving so all was forgiven for the (at the moment odd) transition. i guess i must have been “GaGa’d” from the whole experience of the show, and now i can’t say anything wrong about it.

the only thing that did really stand out for me and i’m not sure yet if its a bad thing or a good thing was maybe the presence of the heels. majority of the time they seemed overpowering to the whole outfit but maybe because of the aesthetic of the over-the-top futuristic look, it didn’t matter. yet after watching it a couple more times, the idea of having a touch sensitive floor would’ve have been just what the show needed to balance it out and even make it more extraordinary. referring to the movie, “2046” by director Wong Kar-Wai. the futuristic bits on the train to be more exact, when the robotic girls are walking on the train. maybe its just my fetish for shoes that was simply distracting me. whatever, a show with futuristic looking models, amazing clothing, incredible make up and styling and miss GAGA, need i say more? although his newest collection did seem a little bit toned down from his last collection, his theatrics were still as impressive, even for the ready-to-wear. give me anything mcqueen and i’ll gladly put it on, if not just to have as a keepsake ;).
