Alexander McQueen Fall 2012

Posted by jonny

The one thing I love about an Alexander McQueen show is that you can expect the unexpected.

In a dark-lit room with the fibre optic lights hanging from the ceiling, the first model stormed the runway wearing an ivory jacquard coat with a Mongolian fur collar.

As the show progressed, the feminine, futuristic looks became more explosive as they pulsated down the runway.

We saw coats, capes, jackets and skirts adorned with feathers, fur pom poms, Mongolian fur and laser-cut pony skin on leather.

One look had a degraded effect of mink, goat fur and ostrich feathers, which was paired with knee-high black mink-trimmed boots.

The pretty dresses with silver dandelion embroideries seem made for Florence Welch.

A selection of fuchsia looks followed which had metal and enamel embroideries shaped into blossoms with an atelier-like precision.

The finale looks sang ‘hello Lady Gaga’ very loudly. Even though the singer is petite, I can see her wearing the black shaved organza gown.

Key accessories included visors, which I’m sure we will see Bryan Boy wearing next fashion week, heel-less shoes and metal waistbands.

We may not get to see the majority of our favourite looks on the red carpet, it will be exciting to see who will get an opportunity to wear the first look.

Who are you hedging your bets on?

Front Row: Salma Hayek and Anna Wintour

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Lady Gaga, Florence Welch, Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton, Rose Byrne, Daphne Guinness and Anne Hathaway.
