WOMEN'S SPRING/SUMMER 2006 "NEPTUNE"

PRESENTED IN AN INDUSTRIAL WAREHOUSE SPACE AND WITH A 30FT CATWALK ILLUMINATED BY A BRIGHT, NARROW STRIP OF LIGHT, GIANNI VERSACE, AZZEDINE ALAIA, GUY BOURDIN, GRACE JONES AND JEAN-PAUL GOUDE HAVE ALL BEEN CITED BY MCQUEEN AS INSPIRATIONAL WHERE THIS POWER-DRIVEN COLLECTION IS CONCERNED.

Every model cast is 5’11” or over and the emphasis is on extreme glamour and gloss, on clothing as the ultimate metropolitan armour. Body-conscious black tailoring features ultra-short skirts, legs long and lean as a fashion illustration and acres of cleavage, Lurex and leather fitted like a second skin, visible underwear worn with sheer body-stockings and, of course, the requisite killer heels are all aimed at an unswervingly confident woman who wears power with pride.
