Exquisitely elaborate detail at Alexander McQueen. Its so fascinating how McQueen is able to fathom such intricate shapes and prints such as the digital reptile-esque versions adorning much of the garments. While I appreciate the innovation in the latter, the bulbous boots with no actual toe were rather off-putting; of which Style.com's Sarah Mower had this to say : "...grotesque shoes that looked like the armored heads of a fantastical breed of antediluvian sea monster." Other breeds of shoe included this which appeared to be the lacquered exoskeleton of an amphibious creature from the Jurassic period. In sum, I applaud McQueen's effort in presenting the most arguably fantastical show of Paris fashion week, but when it comes down to sales, I think the clothes will out-sell the um, shoes.

When I watched the full show I literally got goosebumps. I love both the clothes and shoes, but you are right they might not sell as well as the clothes.

Beautiful show, love your blog
