Camouflage


It's safe to say I'm not a camouflage kind of boy.  The nylon Prada backpacks seriously test my gag reflex, the Jimmy Choo "porno" 'flage makes my skin crawl and if I have to see one more of Nick Wooster's jackets/ties/trousers/shoes...  No, I can't cope with it.  Nevertheless, something about this complex chain-camo mash up print in the McQ AW collection is winning me over.  It's Versaceesque in its snakeskin-like gaudiness yet still very distinctly McQueen.  It's camo from a distance, but close-up very much not (doing, I guess, what camouflage's supposed to do).  I'm quite disappointed the McQ offering for men isn't sticking particularly rigidly to the show I saw the women's look book isn't diverging too much from the runway.  I had my heart set on a kilt and one of those amazing military greatcoats, but a t-shirt (coming in at a rather affordable £115 for a 'designer' print) or a shirt in this pattern would console me for now.  The bomber jacket might be a step too far.

Speaking of jackets, I'm also rather keen on these three pieces below.  I'm thinking A/W is all about the bomber/varsity jacket.  If there's a contrasting fabric choice in there: BONANZA.  I've got my Qasimi option on pre-order; really hope it'll be in London when I get back into town next week!  There's a chill in the air only quilted luxury can fend off.   


Looking forward to the McQ flagship opening on Dover Street, whenever that actually happens.  Pretty sure it was planned as a Spring launch... 

UPDATE: The powers-that-be have informed me the London McQ store is now scheduled for a September launch and will be selling many of the runway pieces which didn't make it into production for sale online.
