In the end, if you look at sea creatures, they have fantastical exo-skeletal structures which could be better interpreted in the structures and constructions rather than just prints, beads, textures. I don't mean for McQueen to copy Danielle Scut or Mario Schwab, but to push in a different direction from them, but at least at that level of imagination and fashion adventurism, ykwim?
yeah i see what you mean.
you are a couturière, right ? your comment always make me think you are. aren't you ?

Some of those are insane! Actually they're all insane. I really don't like the ones with the convex front, it's just weird.

But the metallic ones with the buts'n'bolts detail are fantastic.

most of the shoes look hard... but if you look at the top, you can see the models' ankles are protruding a bit and also the side of a foot, slightly..as if the whole shoe is just made of some kind of skin/fabric.

just except the heel and sole

In a manner of speaking, yes, ...but not like you think. Certainly I am critical and demanding from a wide criteria for sure. It is like awarding the Michelin to a chef - it isn't enough to be extremely good at one dish, say pizza, you have to have a deep knowledge of the different techniques in cuisine, in understanding different culinary cultures, history, traditions, ingredients, meats, vegetables, fruits, spices, in food preparation, grounding, chopping, in cutting, in mixing flavours, in cooking techniques, grilling, baking, frying, steaming, methods of presentation, etc., and with so much food cooked and tasted in the world, you must invent new tastes and dishes! To me, that's also a real fashion designer - first a competent knowledge of everything about history, about clothes (all materials, cuts, construction, techniques of sewing, prints, colours), an outstanding creativity and inventiveness, then a talent for something extraordinary in 3-dimensional understanding, and finally the elevation of fashion to art. Ultimately, the clothes is extended from the body - I'd pick a Rick Owens jacket over a Chanel jacket anytime because for all the expensive models and flowers at a Chanel show, the insane $$$ into the ads, the RO gives me a silhouette that puts me on a pedestal over most other jacket wearers, including the Chanel, in the room.

I do put McQueen in the league of higher expectations because I do believe he still has talent, unlike Karl Lagerfeld or Galliano.

But in the end, I don't think my criticism is to be heeded, as most of my favourite designers, Margiela, Helmut Lang, Hussein Chalayan, etc., are in trouble or vanished from the business. Also, most of the fabulously rich I've come across are rather crass in their preferences, they go by the latest looks in the latest Vogues...

i don't if McQueen produces a size 44 in women shoe ... But if he does, I definitely need to try these on.
