Alexander McQueen and his genius strikes again! I can't believe I managed to miss the resort collection for a week before I stumbled upon it at the fashion spot forums. McQueen has been heavily inspired by artists, a motif that hearkens back to his menswear collection. But the inspiration was taken even further with Escher-esque prints gracing leggings and dresses, and LeWitt-style mind-bending line arrangements. I wish those sheer leggings would be mine right now.
The funny thing is, the above-mentioned artists were the two I turned to just a couple of months ago for inspiration. I even made a collage featuring Alaia's ss 09 collection with an Escher piece as a backdrop. Maybe McQueen can read minds. Maybe he's like Sookie Stackhouse from True Blood but with a far greater field of reach. Maybe True Blood should have aired another episode last weekend instead of taking the week off. Because I'm a little obsessed. Obviously.
Anyways, the my diy dress project has started. I went to Dressew this morning to pick up the fabric and my grandmother is helping me replace the sheer panels. Hopefully it will be finished today!
