Under the Sea

London designer Alexander McQueen debuted his Spring/Summer 2010 collection this week in Paris and certainly put on the most extravant performace of Paris Fashion Week. The show entitled "Plato's Atlantis" involved moving video cameras along the runways and a giant screen showing close ups of the model's clothes.

His show emphasized the issue of global warming through reptile like clothes presented. The concept of the show was of humans originating from the sea and that if global warming continues to melt the polar ice caps, soon humans will once again be forced to return to the sea. This collection was just breathtaking. The prints and structures of the clothes was just phenomenal. My favorite part of the show were the INSANE boots. As impractical as they are, the models jsut looked like a new generation of sea creatures. The McQueen always brings awareness to the problems of today's society. I am just excited to see what he will do to follow this specticle.
