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!

Moderately priced?? You must have deep pockets. Good on yah.

Stripped down??? It was never meant to be an outlet for his haute couture designs seen in the media.

What is truly sad is most of the death horde now raving about Lee never even WORE any of his designs while he was alive.

Good luck riding that death wagon of SL fashion *snorts*

Hahaha. I was expecting a comment like this, simply because anyone in Second Life that sticks their head up to do a project will inevitably get shat upon by those with too much time on their hands.

Of course I can't afford McQueen and never have; I'm a graduate student and a teacher and a mom, and saving for Alba's college tuition comes first. That doesn't mean that I haven't admired and followed fashion from a distance. If I could wear couture I would, hell yeah. Moderately priced in comparison to his other lines; That's what I meant, and you know it.

Death wagon; is that what we're calling homages nowadays? Awesome, I'll keep that in mind.
