McQ Does Goth Meets Grunge
Here are a few selections from the Fall 2010 McQ by McQueen collection (Alexander McQueen’s secondary line). The collection is kind of blah.
But the mix-and-match look, bjork hair buns, and chunky-heeled combat boots are fun. The makeup is fantastic. And it is refreshing to see a somewhat new spin on grunge. Without McQueen, though, the whole thing seems bittersweet, dark and sad. Somehow, it just doesn’t work.
These particular photographs and the styling are lovely, but still miss the mark. The problem with the line can be boiled to to this: Brown? WTF? Brown will not be making its way into Siouxsie’s closet this Fall.
