This collection, while I like a lot about it, and there are several pieces I LOVE, it's maybe a bit too loud? For me, while McQueen has always been, for the most part, a pretty in your face designer...what he has had to say with his clothes was never yelled, it was always whispered (the presentations, on the other hand, were ofter very brash, but the clothes always possesed a delicacy, despite the brutality and torture they often conveyed).
i kind of agree with you on that, maybe this is a bit too loud, but at the same time this is why i love it... i think it's what i needed, a "loud" mcqueen collection to make me feel a little more excited about fashion - especially with the lack of creativity at dior and the trendy/uncreative/just-another-collection vibe i've been getting from many other designers' shows (not to mention what's happening to valentino)... so thanks to gaultier, elbaz, rick owens, yohji, kawakubo, ann d., junya watanabe and a few others, this season "restored" my excitement. and now mcqueen and this insane collection. the details are orgasmic, thank you for posting

Correct me if I am wrong, but you think, the fact that the fashion is brought to everyone via internet (and all other media incl) lowers the artistic moment of it?
Precisely.
There is no time for reflection, it is instantly digested by millions of people who are all "SO OVER IT" before it is even actually produced and in stores. Or in this case, never produced.

The details really saved this on all levels, it's been a long time since I've seen a collection this much punk. This is anarchy, anti-everything - but still on a mature level. It's not about teenage rebellion, but a rebellion against the industry which he is a part of himself. A retrospective intertwined with trash, simple and powerful. This could easily come across as juvenile done by any other designer, but McQueen manages to make this so proffesional in construction and detailing that he pulls it off. The worst part is that even though this isn't really wearable by itself, I think there are many people who would like to wear this - maybe in a fantasy land, or a carnivale, a masquerade. Fashion lies in a borderline terretory, not just between art and business but fantasy.

Bidwell: I agree and disagree. I love the fact that catwalk shows are available online almost as soon as it's over, it evens things out and you still have the possibility to watch and discuss the shows and the pieces. Should the online community slow down, and reflect and watch rather than consume? Probably. Should fashion just be for the elite few? Not at all.
