Fashion Flash: Alexander McQueen for Target

I kind of wish I lived in the US, preferably close to a Target store, so I could be one of the first to get my hands on this line. Alexander McQueen has designed a diffusion line for Target based on his lower - priced McQ line. The line will be available in store and online March 1 through April 11, 2009. Prices haven't been determined, but it's inspired by the Duke Spirit, a British band with an affinity for the sounds of late eighties and early nineties grunge bands. Lead singer Leila Moss was McQueen's muse for the collection who is shown in the picture above. The collection is described to have a muted color palette of black, white, gray and tan with accents of cobalt blue and bright pink. Studs and mesh give items an edge. For example, a chambray sleeveless shirtdress has stud detailing, there’s a mesh wrap dress and an open yarn zipper cardigan. Graphic prints and silk-screen photographs give tunics, dresses and T-shirts visual interest. The Leila silk-screen T-shirt with a necklace collar was designed for The Duke Spirit lead singer, while other band members are immortalized on a sleeveless jersey T-shirt. A sateen strapless pleat dress in a tattoo print of mermaids, dice and anchors is an example of McQueen’s penchant for pairing feminine fabrics with tough details. Alexander McQueen at an affordable price? This is all too much...
