McQueen Rules Reign

January 20, 2009

Feeling utterly spent after researching gender and representation in film: activity, passivity and the “gaze” etc., I reckoned I’d browse Men’s Style for the latest from the shows. Much to my surprise this didn’t provide respite from said gender representations but brought it all flooding back again. Alexander McQueen has fashioned a new, singular and transmogrified masculine. Entitled “The McQueensbury Rules” the FW 09 collection featured gaunt brutes sporting mercilessly exact, tailored pieces. Again, keeping in vein with Prada’s sartorial survival tactics McQueen showed leathers (only this time they appeared even more unyielding, top prize to the butcher’s apron), and furs in black and maroon.

I tried to refrain from criticizing the codpieces but it’s pointless. They are pointless. Here’s hoping this “survival” theme that’s emerging doesn’t provoke full-on body armour, McQueen’s breastplates are sufficient, thanks.
