MEN'S AUTUMN/WINTER 2010 "AN BAILITHEOIR CNÁMH"

AN BAILITHEOIR CNÁMH (THE BONE COLLECTOR - GAELIC).

We live in an age of change and of discovery; the ice caps may well be melting, the weather is becoming more and more extreme, and technology moves on apace in our increasingly modern world. But old and ancient cultures also knew a world of change, and their ghosts and skeletons haunt us to this day.

For Autumn/Winter 2010, Alexander McQueen’s collection evokes the culture of explorers and sea faring peoples, whose lives and attire are about protection and survival in extreme conditions, and whose legacy pokes through the melting snow and ice like ancient artefacts and bones.
