Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 runway collection was a statement about the future of our world. More specifically, the meltdown of our world due to global warming. McQueen’s version of Waterworld showcased mankind as alien-like creatures forced to adapt/evolve and live in the sea as the polar ice caps have melted. Out came clothing in reptilian prints and sequins to mimic fish scales. The fantasy heels on the runway looked like they were out of this world – or at least this land. They were super high, skeletor-like and featured interestingly curved booties designed for the the animalistic and bold.

On a side note, Gilt Groupe is having an Alexander McQueen accessories (shoes, bag, wallets) sale today. The collection is decidedly more tame, but not nearly as interesting.
