The newest images for the fall 2011 Alexander McQueen campaign just popped up August 1st with model Raquel Zimmermann in the spotlight (literally).
Since the far-too-soon passing of Mr. McQueen, Sarah Burton has been doing an amazing job with one of the world’s leading fashion houses. The fashion is incredible wowing us season after season on the runway. The fall ad campaign, however, is another story.
With graphic pops of color and a lack of realism that embodies a comic book turned action movie, I’m wondering if something seems a bit off. See for yourself:
Without adding any disrespect I’m just wondering . . . do you find these images to be a little like something you might see printed on a t-shirt in the mall?
Are the graphics a little too forced, or is the mystical drama in these shots simply part of the over-the-top beauty that the iconic McQueen line is all about?
Feel free to chime in!
