The fall/winter collection Alexander McQueen presented yesterday in Paris was delightfully ridiculous: perfectly tailored leather sheaths; glittery hooded dresses; ladylike houndstooth severely cut; a feathered dress with cocoon-like eggshell collar. Plus! Soda-can rollers.
Ignore the trashcan lid hat and focus instead on the amazing quilted fabric, if you can.
The styling is purposely horrifying. Don't let it scare you!
Instead, check out this gorgeous glittery number which has Grace Jones's name all over it.
Thou shalt not cross the lady of the house! (That jacket is exquisitely cut, by the by.)
It's raining, it's pouring, McQueen is never boring.
You can admire the workmanship in this quilted coat, while still asking yourself who the hell would wear it.
Ankle-snappers! If you loved the shoes at Nina Ricci then these may seduce you.
