Milan…Alexander McQueen
McQueen has already provided the counterpoint to this city’s overarching “comfy, pajama-inspired” theme. He showed a collection of body-conscious pieces that ranged from infinitely wearable suits to infinitely memorable glam-rock outfits that recalled the disco days of the ’70s. In between, was a series of ergonomically defined second-skin knits. As seen at Jil Sander, geometrically precise color-blocking was involved.  In this run up to the Beijing Olympics with an emphasis on the athleticism and strength of the human form, it makes sense that at least one or two designers should be influenced by this global event. McQueen was clearly one of them.
