Long Live McQueen




Yesterday was the Alexander McQueen press day, which for those who aren't in the industry, is when press people come in and get to see (and touch) the collection showed at the last fashion week, A/W 10-11 in this case, and the lovely PRs explain you a bit through it.
Now I know this is not the kind of thing I blog about and that the pictures taken with blackberrys aren't the best to look at but this visit to the McQueen HQ was such a fucking lesson of how to do things properly, how to rock a collection, and then, these pictures are better than nothing, right?
I got quite sad thinking that Lee wouldn't be around the studio but I totally felt him in every single piece and,
I'm sure, whoever takes over, will do a great job.




Impecable patterns

This leather jacket had crocodile, snake and ostrich leather on it,
kind of super amazing

Some of the womenswear piece that will totally make into my wardrove,
just like a few of the leggings, this winter I'm gonna be so warm









Also the accessories blowed my mind:



Starting with the -already house signature- knuckle duster bags













Some rings...




this one is my favourite, it's sooooo gonna be mine...
(just so you people know my birthday is 28th of June)


And amazing shoes:









Like, honestly women, can you stop wearing flats?
Cause they're fucking boring and these shoes have angels heels!
It's kind of strange how they look like the ones in cemeteries right?

Then, on my way out, when I thought it couldnt get any better,
I spotted the very same outfit Kate Moss wore at the Fashion For Relief show




Just one more thing to say...

Que fotos mas maravillosas! Gracias por el peek Pelayo! Y como es que se va a un press day? Saludos y mil gracias - se ve una coleccion excelente.

E said...

Thank you so much for sharing this with the world. I am a fashion designer that has been following the career of Lee McQueen since his first runway show.
He is the reason i went to fashion school. His brilliance will never be topped.

THANK YOU...Long Live McQueen...

Se fue otro mas.. bueno que le vamos a hacer.
Su historia fue fantastica.. pero su ultima coleccion no me parecio muy bueno, la que rindio homenaje a su muerte. Pero he de decir que los complementos de tus fotos se salen.

The Style Hive said...

What a great post! For you, I'll try and not wear flats next week.

Amazing things! I'm speechless! It's incredibly creative of him, but he has always been a creative designer! I really love his stuff! I can't believe his gone now, can't take it in! Long live Alexander McQueen!

Les Garcons said...

This is a great post Pelayo. Love your photographs, you really captured the vibe.

Thanks, Les Garcons de Glasgow x

pelayo, sinceramente
alexander mcqueen era un genio y la coleccion es preciosa y tal,
y los zapatos son preciosos, pero los zapatos planos no tienen por que ser feos, y son mucho mas comodos, a quien pueda andar con esos zapatos, practicamente todo el dia o un buen rato, y estando comoda, enhorabuena

Alex said...

Amazing Mcqueen, by the way check my daily style here: http://myprivateviewsblog.blogspot.com/

nuvonova said...

Everything there looks amazing, and yes, the shoes!!!!

anonymous girl said...

He really is a genius. It does not matter that you took the photos with your phone, because even that brings out the beauty and power of his designs.

Hey, we women would stop wearing flats if we didn't have to walk down a crowded oxford street all the time. I love his purses and I hope I can afford one soon, especially the ones he designed before the new designer comes in.

Who cares if I'm a guy, I think I need one of those killer handbags on one hand and the ring on the other. McQueen will in fact live on forever.
Very snappy!

No sé como puedes decir eso de las prety balerinas,
realmente me has dejado consternada. Yo que me gustan tanto, a nosotras las peruanas nos encanta el taconazo, pero yo pienso que el zapato plano, entras way por el ano.

Era el mejor, de eso no hay duda.

Lovely post, thanks! It's really interesting to see what he left behind.

Banksy in Moscow said...

¿Cuánta gente habrá descubierto a McQueen gracias a (por desgracia de) su muerte?
Es triste pero bello a la vez, cual tragedia griega.
Yo siempre he dicho que la ropa no es bonita ni fea per se, sino que todo depende de quién, cómo y cuando la lleve, ya que es sólo y exclusivamente en el cuerpo de un hombre/mujer cuando una prenda cobra vida...CON MCQUEEN ME TENGO QUE CALLAR LA BOCA.

Jeannie Lee said...

omg! i cant think of anything else to say.
