I see inspirations from Ernest Heckels' illustrations of crustaceans and sealife. I see it as just a differnt take on a similar inspiration. If you compare the elements of the too collections they are completely different. Its just the stage, hair and over all presentation that makes it feel like its really McQueen-like.

Glad I'm not the only one to think that this collection SCREAMS McQueen! It looks so much like Platos Atlantis it's scary. Not bad though, but then again how bad can it be if it looks almost identical to Alexander's work!

I can see some similarities to McQueen, but the collection doesn't *scream* McQueen to me. I also think it has alot to do with the styling.

the caliber of craftmanship is incredible! this is the kind of HC I like. I know sometimes you can't see HC cause HC is more than just embellishment, but it's stuff like this when you can see how detailed these pieces can be, it makes it a wonderful eye experience. i wish i could touch these.

Thanks for the HQ Selfportraitgrl.

I doubt Mr Soda would copy McQueen past or present. He's very talented and his collections always show it. McQueen on the other hand used to copy left and right. Just about every collection he did had blatant copies of Galliano's past collections amongst others designers. His autumn 2000-01 collection for Givenchy had so many Bob Mackie rip-offs right off his "Unmistakably Mackie" book published the year before.
