McQueen at Gilt Groupe and Target

Although I’m usually drawn to the ornate, the eccentric, in Alexander McQueen, I find that he also makes a strong statement with a very simple line.

Today Gilt Groupe began its McQ sale, and I was one of the first visitors, for a change, as there was a *sold* stamp on only one image. I was just window shopping, but I could see how these looks would be very happy in my closet.

Worn with an outrageous, yet ladylike shoe, of course.

The beauty of these looks is that they’re nothing new, but are so obviously well cut and designed that they look fresh. I’d be loathe to wear a simple turtleneck and trouser from another company, but McQ makes them sleek, edgy (literally: look how the trouser falls), and fresh:







Gorgeous for evening:


I hear that McQ is making a line for Target. That could be interesting if his aim is true. Indeed, I just might develop a new appreciation for Mc-prefix products . . .

I have NEVER gotten to Gilt without confronting scads of sold-out items the minute the sale opened. I stopped going there because it was ridiculous. Nice sharp shoulders on that jacket.

I couldn't believe only one item was sold. I felt like I was having a real shopping experience with choice!

This is gorgeous stuff.

Did you buy anything?

I checked it out too, but I am loathe to dish out lots of moola on something I haven't tried on. I haven't worn his stuff before, so it's a gamble.

No--this was purely a browsing session as I couldn't purchase anything that I cannot return. I'd love to go to BG and try some things on, though . . .
