Alexander McQueen fall ‘08. Drool, why don’t you.Photo: imaxtree
Rumor has it Alexander McQueen is on tap to do a Target Go International collection. So jump up and down and scream HOLY JESUS YES! Now calm down a bit as you allow the thought of McQueen clothes so affordable you can have multiple pieces hanging in your closet to sink in. We’re still having trouble adjusting to the idea, but we’re jumping up and down. Even McQueen’s McQ diffusion line can easily run you upwards of $400 for a dress and $200 for a top. And yes, he already does collaborations with Puma and Samsonite, but let’s be real here — if we’re going to own McQueen, we want to see it, as mentioned above, hanging in our closet. We don’t need McQueen sneakers (any ol’ Pumas are just fine for that) or luggage that costs $800 and is just going to get dinged up anyway. No, no, we need McQueen on our person and we need it now. And we need it to not fall to pieces, like some of the other recent Target lines have done. So let’s hope that the retailer, in keeping with a designer of such caliber, gets materials worthy of his work. In the meantime, keep everything you can cross crossed to make this rumor come true.
