Bits & Bytes: Hail to McQueen


As important as it is to be able to “wear” fashion, there must be that side to it that thrills us. Alexander Mcqueen certainly did that with his S/S 10 collection. From Lady Gaga twittering to the live streaming by Nick Knight’s Showstudio (for video, click here), people certainly love them some McQueen. Besides his wondrous collection though, as Sarah Mower from says: “the way he’s embracing new computer technologies and the drama of the moving image puts him at the leading edge of change.”

Check out Jezebel’s uber witty, yet still reverent notes about Alexander McQueen’s collection.

  1. OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Who is this new kid Alend???
    give gim Calvin Klein Underwear!!!]
    I can predict Giorgio Armani (fragrance!)!
    His future is GAP + Benetton + D&G + Sean O´Pry is sooo forgotten from now on!
    THE most good looking boy you guys have EVER featured on the website!
    im drooling forever here at my desk

  2. *Sigh* You and me both Gustavo…you and me both.. Your sentiment just about sums it up.. What a face. He’ll grow into an unbelievably beautiful man. Sean and Baptiste have got some trouble in the water. Bajayzus!

    Probably too much face for Calvin but Dolce will snatch this one up for sure. More photos on his agency website.

    That fisrt image from McQueen would be the perfect editorial, panned out & away from the subject and set on a sand dune in the Arabian Desert. Mind numbing!

    Someone will buy the shoes. They are quite stunning to say the least, not the most wearable perhaps but so what?!

  3. None of the girls tumbled so they can’t be that bad to walk in. Compared to Prada last year where the shoes looked fine yet every other girl stumbled!

  4. Alexander McQueen is a showman we know that!
    his latest collection was a hybrid between ‘Bram Stoker´s Dracula’ and ‘Dream One’ with Carole Bouquet! i loved it!

  5. those are just regualar heel shapes on the inside but the dome looks like they’re point shoes but if that were the case they couldn’t walk fast and fall…
