Alexander McQueen spring 2010

Alexander McQueen‘s collections are always whispering to one another, maybe that’s his secret. Unlike many designers who hire separate eyes and hands for their men and women’s wear collections McQueen keeps the same source, himself.

For spring 2010 McQueen’s woman left the Victorian romanticism behind and transformed into a super, space-aged reptiles making the collection one of the larger shows, conceptually, of the spring 2010 runway season:

Just when we thought this couldn’t possibly be translated to menswear, he surprised us. But we weren’t caught off guard. We’ve long been accustomed to McQueen’s innovative collections, much like we’re not surprised when Beyonce produces yet another great music video.

For his fall 2010 menswear collection McQueen placed a lot of focus on prints and patterns, but used caution. Many of the abstract reptile prints he used in his spring women’s collection reappeared and melded with his uncanny, precise eye for tailoring. Even with his head-to-toe monochromatic looks, the prints were not overwhelming.

Every season McQueen shows that he’s not trying to create a look, but evoke an emotion, a feeling. Isn’t that what art is ?
