Alexander McQueen Spring 2011 featuring Lindsey Wixson

This time of year is terrible for going out but great for fashion. There are more new campaigns than you can poke a stick at and Fashion Week (depending on which city you're in, obviously) is just around the corner. Understandably, this time last season the fash-pack were a little apprehensive about the future of McQueen without Lee at the helm. However, Sarah Burton's d├ębut in September was more than impressive. With this in mind, I'm actually quite disappointed by the Spring 2011 campaign...


I absolutely loved the collection and it gave everyone with doubt in their mind reassurance but this is just doing nothing for me. Maybe it's because I've not caught on to the Lindsey Wixson bandwagon yet but her doll-face ruins this for me. Sorry Lindsey! She's great in the whimsical Mulberry campaign but this is McQueen - where is the edge and glamour?! Maybe it'll grow on me but I'm definitely hoping that the other images are more impressive. 

What do you think of the latest campaign and who would you have liked to see modelling the campaign?

  1. Definitely not my favourite campaign that I've seen so far but the butterfly effect is pretty damn sweet!

  2. The butterflies are stunning, but I agree with you- this lacks the edginess of McQueen!

  3. I love the shot, I like how it's a bit different for McQueen. I am a big Lindsey fan though so that might have influenced my opinion :) Sally x
