Alexander McQueen SS 2005

Alexander McQueen SS 2005
Using a futuristic chess game as mise en scene, McQueen this time offers up an intricately worked and determinedly youthful collection featuring pieces that whisper of fashion fantasy although always with a typically tough edge. And so a floral print, primrose yellow baby doll dress is finished with signature leather harnessing, for example, amply demonstrating the play between power and vulnerability that the designer has by now made his own. The starting point is filmic again.

This time clothes are inspired by Picnic At Hanging Rock - quintessential McQueen territory given its ultra-feminine and innocent spirit undermined by a significantly dark undercurrent. Everything from Edwardian children's wear to embroidered fairground horses makes an appearance. The chessboard motif allows the designer to explore different types of women -- Americans face Japanese on the board, redheads are placed opposite Latin Americans and so forth.
