McQueen of my heart

Alexander McQueen’s RTW SS10 was definitely not what you have in mind when you think about the term ready-to-wear. McQueen’s resort 2010 collection on the other hand, had me going “ooh” and “aah” with every piece. The patterns, cuts and lines were all about precision while the colours intensify the designs. It was one of those rare collections that are so strong that you either want to own everything or get greatly inspired by it.

This look reminds me of the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland. Could be the colours and lines, like in the maze. Not to be deterred by the bold patterns and colours, the jacket in this look can easily be worn with anything and everything for the touch of zaniness and fun.

Though fashion gurus always advise against matching patterns and lines, this looks seems to throw all those logic out the window. The space-age cool dress has such a strong persona of its own that you wouldn’t need to do much about accessorizing it, making it an easy dress to wear.

This cosmic cool metallic suit will update any boring, conventional office wear.

I love t-shirt dresses for those lazy days. Having a large blue splash motif on the front makes it all the better.

If you have the guts and talent, get creative and splash some paints on your old clothes to give them an artistic touch.

The zipper suit dress seems to be making quite the appearance in several collections now. Their body friendly cut and edgy detail makes it good fashion investment that will last through seasons.

This dress made my favourite list for several reasons: it’s in a bright colour, it’s yellow, it has lace, the lace has a special insect motif, it has a waistline and it has that very elegant 40’s style to it. Even Drew and Naomi approves of it.

Insect motif lace leggings – ingenious.
