Alexander McQueen Fall/Winter 2014 Review | Paris Fashion Week
Fallen trees, patchy earth and dried moss lie in a field in the middle of nowhere, smoke wreathing from the ground. It looked as if it were some sort of atomic wasteland, the apocalyptic aftermath of a war. The setting of Alexander McQueen Fall/Winter 2014 was like something out of a Sci-Fi movie. The haunting soundtrack muffled in the background was “Earth Intruders” by Bjork. It was an eerie scene where one surely could get abducted by aliens.
This clash was between prehistoric cave women wrapped in primitive and exotic furs versus the alien princesses clad in futuristic feathers, galactic embroideries and sparkly moon boots. The models all had hauntingly white faces but the differences between them were manifested in the makeup. Sparkling eyes with yellow, silver and white highlights contrasted the feral bushy eyebrows with grey undertones. Battle hair was braided and twisted, spiraling along the scalp.
The clothing was just as impressive as the scenery and details. The collection consisted of Edwardian high neck collars, empire waistlines, long coats completely draped with feathers, and untamed fur hoods. Broderie anglaise was decorated with starscapes, galaxies and astronomical designs such as stars and moons. The savage women wore bracelets with ivy leaf chain mail that enveloped the entire hand. The collection lacked color for the most part consisting mostly of blacks, whites and grays, but some final looks included extreme violet, bloodstain red, and musty teal.
The show’s overall occult feel has topped everything that Sarah Burton has done since taking hem of the label. Intense details, magical hair and makeup and the medley between haute couture and RTW, gave me a glimmering reminder of the late McQueen. The apocalyptic energy was apparent and the collection itself was romantically dark, a theme embedded in the cult of McQueen.
since when do cave women get sew-ins?

AS LONG AS IT’S NOT INSIDE A HOUSE IT’S FAIR GAME. THAT’S HOW I’VE COME TO UNDERSTAND IT.
What about cleanup?
NOT YOUR CONCERN. SOMEONE COMES ALONG WITH A BAG.
I KNOW, IT SOUNDS CRAZY, BUT I SWEAR IT’S TRUE.
N - Nasty
The fact that grown men, not kids, men think they need to rely on insulting and ganging up on women just to entertain other men reeks of desperationAnd then when women call them out and defend the person being attacked we’re “salty” and “shouldn’t be offended because this isn’t about you”
And when men defend women they’re “caping” … like please take a seat at the childrens table
buncha ho ass niggas, man.
They are awesome together
