A Look Inside ‘Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty’

As The Met officially stated,

“The exhibition, organized by The Costume Institute, will celebrate the late Alexander McQueen’s extraordinary contributions to fashion.

From his Central Saint Martins postgraduate collection of 1992 to his final runway presentation, which took place after his death in February 2010, Mr. McQueen challenged and expanded the understanding of fashion beyond utility to a conceptual expression of culture, politics, and identity.

His iconic designs constitute the work of an artist whose medium of expression was fashion.

The exhibition will feature approximately one hundred ensembles and seventy accessories from Mr. McQueen’s prolific nineteen-year career.

Drawn primarily from the Alexander McQueen Archive in London, with some pieces from the Givenchy Archive in Paris as well as private collections, signature designs including the “bumster” trouser, the kimono jacket, and the three-point “origami” frock coat will be on view.

McQueen’s fashions often referenced the exaggerated silhouettes of the 1860s, 1880s, 1890s, and 1950s, but his technical ingenuity always imbued his designs with an innovative sensibility that kept him at the vanguard.”

{iStyle} Dreams of Fancy in a Haute Couture Art Clouds

Haute Couture Fall 2010

By: Julia Rachlin, guest blogger

Twice a year in Paris, arguably the most aspirational and dream-inspiring event in the fashion world takes place, the Haute Couture runway shows.

Unlike their ready-to-wear compatriots, the couture shows are produced almost solely as a platform for the designers to express their wildest dreams and most extravagant visions to the world.

Truly a massive production – especially considering there are only 2,000 women in the world today who [Read more…]

{iStyle} What will you be wearing this Fall?

By: Jenn Ortiz, guest blogger

Fall 2009 RTW and Couture collections have been presented, and a bit of analysis is in order.

Overall, looks are stronger and more dramatic. Puff sleeves and stronger shoulders with cinched waists, invoking the 1950’s and 1980’s; however, this influence is presented in a more modern and softer way. Come Fall, there will be bolero jackets and some boxier cut jackets and coats showing up on the racks. For the most part, hem lines were shown high (or non existent as the pantless look continues). Draping was used, most interestingly, in shorter dresses and less like the grecian goddess draping of the past. You’ll see a mix of modern with revived and revised classics. We’ve seen embellishment, luxurious fabrics, mixed with torn and deconstructed or unconventional and casual. Old-fashioned lingerie, hats, and gloves are reinterpreted and mixed into outfits. Much of what is presented here can be added to a basic wardrobe easily. There are plenty of opportunities to thrift, buy vintage, and DIY. Below are my picks for Fall/Winter ’09 trends. [Read more…]
