What the McQueen?

Admittedly, I’ve had my head in the suburban clouds lately, baking popovers and researching light-sensitive Christmas window candles.  But how did I miss Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 shoes last Monday? 

Look at these things! The model’s ankles sprouted glittery sea monsters. I love that he made them and doubt anyone who doesn’t walk for a living could wear them for more than 30 seconds. For one thing, they’re 10 inches tall. While it’s tempting to believe his whole goal was to foil Steve Madden’s rampant copies, pushing the increasingly staid fashion establishment in a new direction is closer to McQueen’s core.

The Cut has the scuttlebutt, video, and a gallery of accessory/hair stills.  The sea anemone hair is not to be missed.

The whole show streamed live online and is worth a gander.

  1. I had to show everyone at my office these shoes! Unbelievable!!!
