アレキサンダーマックイーンの過去と未来をつなげる桜 2015春夏 Alexander McQueen’s future sakura in bloom SS 2015




2015春夏のマックイーンは見応え抜群だった。だって、馴染みのあるディテールがいろいろ…例えば桜、侍、寿司。(って寿司は冗談!) 最高にモダンなジャポニズムの風を、マックイーンが運んできた

It had always been a dream of mine to attend an Alexander McQueen show in person- that dream was dashed quite early on in my career, but even now witnessing a show is a magical experience that can hardly be compared to anything in the realm of dull reality. “It’s just clothes!”. But for those 15 minutes it’s carnal beauty on the runway. 

It was my first time to see the collection in person, and I have Sarah Burton herself to thank for that, since it’s a bloodbath even amongst editors to get a seat.

This 2015 spring/summer collection was especially great to see, since there was something familiar here… sakura, samurai and sushi. (ok, the last one is a lie). Japonisme was in the air, in those most modernized way possible….
