THE FINAL COLLECTION:
The final show from the late Alexander McQueen was shown at a private viewing in Paris on March 9, 2010. With many references to skulls, angels, and religious iconography of the medieval times, McQueen created a collection of elegance and romanticism with influence of the Dark Ages and the silhouettes of the many periods of women before us. He also took to reference of many of his past collections and used collaboration for those in a more poetic justice for the his latest pieces. Some say there is ironic relevance to the recent events and his final collection. I almost feel like it's a stage of life from birth to death carrying on into afterlife with the choice of hues and many ornate details. The pieces were 80% completed at his time of death and at the presentation. I think if any, this collection established his well being of a couturier and really left his imprint on the fashion world.
LATEST AND FINAL HIGHLIGHTS OF PARIS FASHION WEEK A/W 2010:
WINTER WONDERLAND @ CHANEL
I'm obsessed with the ice cube clad purses and ice block booted heels. Chanel is all about the details, and this collection sure follows what they're famous for. Branding and marketing Coco in any weather!
THE AVENGERS MEET PARIS @ HERMES:
I loved this entire collection. I could dress like this every day if I had the means to own a wardrobe full of Hermes. Beautiful cuts! Very sleek and I love the whole persona they are giving off with this season.
FLOWY & FLIRTY @ VALENTINO:
Refined taste meets Parisian fashion - Valentino
I'm loving these pumps! They would look fabulous in complete nude hues!
DARK, ROMANTIC ACCENTS @ TALBOT RUNHOF:
Well thats it for now --Back to studying for finals! Spring break next week! Going to the South to visit family!
