Alexander McQueen Spring 2010: Atlantis

Sea Monsters, Raquel Zimmerman writhing around in sand and snakes



Seriously, watch.

"Then the models came out, dressed in short, reptile-patterned, digitally printed dresses, their gangly legs sunk in grotesque shoes that looked like the armored heads of a fantastical breed of antediluvian sea monster. McQueen, according to an internal logic detailed in a press release, was casting an apocalyptic forecast of the future ecological meltdown of the world: Humankind is made up of creatures that evolved from the sea, and we may be heading back to an underwater future as the ice cap dissolves."

The shoes look like a spin on the ballerina fetish boot.



Oh My God.
