Alexander McQueen's Reptilian Evolution for Spring 2010

{SummaryTitle}

In a futurist feast for the eyes, Alexander McQueen gave a stunning lesson in fashionable evolution yesterday in Paris.  His collection entitled “Plato’s Atlantis” was a string of wearable art.  All but the sky-high alien heels, that is. 

Snake scales were digitally printed in all shades of jewel brown and sculpted into cocktail dresses.  Flashes of desert rose, yellow and forest green kept these reptilian masterpieces looking modern. Graphic art at its freshest. 

In transition, feather and wing patterns were imprinted on chiffon, just before McQueen dove into his bluish, aquatic creatures.  Looking back at his 2010 Resort collection, we could have seen this coming.  The final show-stopping piece was a personification of Mother of Pearl, with every square inch beaming off a color of the rainbow. 

Additional buzz surrounding the show was the premier of Lady Gaga’s new song which played at the end.  You can judge the entire production for yourself since the designer has generously posted the show on his website.
