McQueen Resort 2010

My constant summer traveling and staying at places with no internet has caused me to miss out on my favorite designer's latest Resort collection! Thankfully I am now settled in Florida for about 2 weeks and finally have an internet connection. So at last I was able to lay my eyes on Alexander McQueen's 2010 Resort collection and I LOVED it! This is not much of a surprise to me because I basically love everything this man does. His latest pieces were inspired by art, which can definitely be seen in the Pollock-like paint splatters and geometric MC Escher prints. My favorite piece is definitely the first yellow & black dress, I think it's so stunning! The bodice fits so immaculately that it looks like a tattoo on her collar bone and arms. I also like how the sweetness of the yellow and the softness of the flowing skirt combines beautifully with the harsher, black tattoo-like print. This print is used later on in the collection on leggings, which I would love to own! I also like the cool, casual look of the paint-splattered pants outfit (those jeans would be a great DIY project!). Another thing I really like about this collection is how it's soft and feminine and at the same time strong and edgy; the contradiction really works here. Overall I think this is a strong collection for Resort as the pieces are much more wearable, but still maintain McQueen's unique and rebellious style.

ps. I really really really love this clutch from McQueen. I wear rings like that everyday so it would be a perfect clutch for me. This is definitely going on the dream list!
