Alexander McQueen S/S 08

For me, McQueen's S/S 08 show saved the season. Generally, I was slightly underwhelmed by the offerings up to this point but from my first glimpse of this collection I was awe-struck!

It so perfetly encompasses what a fashion collection, in my opinion, should be: it is cohesive; meticulously well-made and formed; uses beautiful and varied fabrics of different textures, patterns and materials; is styled brilliantly; has amazing accessories which are inherent to the collection rather than forcing themselves upon it; offers a variety of garments which appeal to all ages; and, above all, is visually satisfying both in terms of viewing the garment and what it does for the body.

Thus, I feel that McQueen has truly outdone himself this season. He has stepped up a level within the echelons of fashion-design. He has not only established himself in the very elite-est league of high-end fashion, he has shown us exactly how good he is, and quietened the nay-sayers of his last collection (which I adored!!). He has really pushed that very signature Alexander McQueen style which is imperative for any design-house. And, yes, I say "house" not to be presumptuous but with full belief that the house of McQueen has many, many successful years ahead of it.

Oh, and did I mention the hats?!?! Bloody genius. Kudos to Phillip Treacy, these are nothing short of genius.
