McQueen 01


The Alexander McQueen website shows a stripped-down, wearable, moderately priced version of his style. The site is meant for modest consumers, and I can't help but imagine how little the man would like it. “Nicey nicey just doesn’t do it for me,” McQueen said once, and reading about his fashion shows, I'd believe it. Today's style is inspired by the RTW site, using McQueen's blocky lines interpreted through an outfit by Anya Ohmai.

With the help of some friends, I'm posting a week-long series inspired by Alexander McQueen. I think he would've loved Second Life, especially reading this about his style: "The models appeared to be brutalized, wearing lacy dresses with hems and bodices ripped open, their hair tangled and their eyes blanked out with opaque contact lenses." (Source) Heck, I think I saw that in Putrid Gloom's sim just last week. I've begun gently, however, and hope that the rest of my guest-bloggers take it to the extreme!
