^^^ Sarahís menswear for McQueen has been doing the Lord of the Flies disenchanted youths in dusty opulent colonial-Maharaji silhouettes before Wales Bonner came along.

It's my preference of dress, but she's been very consistent with her menswear offering-- and much much much more effortless than the womenswear, which by now resembles a mangled facelift that's been reworked once too many times.

I've seen what she's done all the way through. Tell me how can the setting, the earrings and the white, yellow and blue not in the slightest way look similar to Grace's work?

^^^ You must be kidding LOL

No one has the rights to a color-palettes, a fashion accessory or set design.

If that’s the case, then Grace’s Wales Bonner’ styling is stealing from Gaultier’s Harlem Renaissance collection of A/W 97…

(BTW, my earlier post should read "Not my preference of dress...")

I haven't liked Alexander McQueen menswear under Sarah Burton for a while. This is good.

^^The content is that these guys just go with whatever the hype is about. Once a buzz is created then eveyone's getting their hands into the same thing immediately. That's what I've had enough.

Actually what Sara showed at McQueen is pretty consistent to what she's been showing for years, and many elements are a reference to what McQueen himself did over a decade ago. In fact most of these pieces have been produced for seasons and have just been updated in print or color - the suiting is done at their Saville Row workshop and the silhouettes are very consistent season after season.

If you want to get technical - a great deal of Wales Bonner this season could easily be lifted from the McQueen archives. I can't speak to the construction but I don't think she'd be out of place working within the McQueen brand someday.

I'm talking about this collection.
Of course I know it's a continuation of McQueen fall 2016 and in the later part it's something Sarah's been doing since 2013. But come on, you seriously can't see it?

No, I can't. Because McQueen and McQ have been doing this kind of silhouettes and imaginary for ages. It was never about the hype. If there is a hype today I would say that "they did it first". I would see it more if you were reasoning the other way around but even that would be strange to me as I don't think the collections to be that similar. That Wales Bonner collection actually reminds me more of Prada than anything else.

That being said, loving this collecting. I wish they had it on women's sizes.

Er, not seeing the connection either. This is basically her MO for menswear since she's taken over the house.

WOW, what a nice collection. I'm in love.
Nothing better than a McQueen's drama.
