No, not really - look at his quote in Bidwell's post #347.

McQueen never disappoints.

By a mile, this collection is my favorite this season. Those last several looks are especially TDF!!

Thanks for posting.

Absolutely stunned at this collection, by far the best of the season, true to McQueen form.
I cannot wait to pop to Old Bond St and see the next window display!

well... the makeup and headpieces are definitely memorable already! O_O I'm not sure how many people will embrace/ be brave enough to apply makeup and lipstick like that off the catwalk and in public I liked what ElectricAlyce said about being able to present two seemingly different collections in the showrooms and catwalks. i think on the catwalk, it really is about showing how creative, imagainative and wild you can make your collection- making it a memorable one as well.

This collection was completely indescribable for me. I was talking with some friends about it and I found myself at a complete loss for words when trying to think of adjectives. And in the most positive way, too!

I think the set design for the show was a brilliant choice, really set the mood and the colours.

Is this a comment on society's obsession with cosmetic surgery?

The more media I get of this collection, the more I feel so drawn to it. I scoured nearly every video on YouTube and picture on the internet. I'm in love with it, truly. The fact that it comes off as a little bit demented is so intriguing to me.
I think there can be many interpretations of this collection.

I dont know if anyones mentioned this but I love McQueens referrence to his own previous collections without actually totally ripping anything off. I think the reverse bird illusion is a really dear pattern to him, it seems to have some sort of value to him.

From his S/S 1994 collection



And this collection
