Let the Ad out of the Bag -- Ray of McQueen

Firstly, we would like to apologize for the lack of updates! We're currently really busy with school as there's a never-ending stream of homework coming our way...

And so is the fashion world a rapid that sweeps every victim off their feet.

While most S/S 09 campaigns have been unveiled, McQueen keeps our breath held tensely with the revelation of its second campaign. I really prefer the first though, but seeing that the clothes in the S/S 09 season are of much stronger, striking character, this ad certainly looks promising. The model's pose is a dynamite, and its repetition electrifies the viewer, just like a laser beam does.

The fall/ winter collection features McQueen's signature mind-blowing proportions and shapes, but this time with less fanciful prints and body-hugging corsets. The fashion genius did not compromise despite the recession --headpieces and elaborate heels emerged on the runway, but this time, with heavy hints of modernity such as metals, bolts and studs. Overall an intoxicating show of gothic colours and lethal silhouettes balanced with graceful prints and tesseleations of soaring birds and whimsical circles.
