Alexander McQueen Men's RTW Fall 2010 / MFW-Day03

McQueen’s interest in the clashing of modern technology and the natural world extended from his women’s wear to men’s, acquiring a macabre dimension. Bones, fur, chain mail and ice were among the computer-engineered photo prints that dominated the collection.

McQueen worked almost solely with smooth surfaces, including leather, plastic, fine cotton poplin and silk-wool suiting. Shapes were fitted and top-heavy and included a new shoulder line with exaggerated, round structure in the tailoring.

Meanwhile, double-layered tailored coats—short over long—offered a new sense of proportion.

The showmanship was not up to McQueen’s usual standards. But to his credit, he channeled his efforts into a collection with myriad new ideas. Let’s see if any of them stick.
