Battle of the great: McQueen vs. Vuitton

Battle of the great is a series of posts about fashion trends and collection for fall/winter 2009-2010 that I have chosen to write about. For the first episode, I chose Alexander McQueen and Louis Vuitton.

I have always admired McQueen for his boldness and ability to shock and create the unpredictable. For this pre-fall collection he went a little easier on volumes and colors and I really like the elegant and confident type of women that inspired him.

As for the Vuitton collection, it is absolutely magnificent! I adore the way they combined Bordeaux and dark gray, both 'hard' colors and elegant. Big ruffle shirts and knee dresses along with the 60's elegant style of the hairdo and make-up as a whole with the clothes and accessories make this collection my personal favorite! Big brooches and hair accessories are my personal favorite for this season.

Alexander McQueen was all about country pursuits: a riding jacket, jodhpurs, shearling maxi skirts, and chunky hand knits. McQueen's skill as a cutter is beyond dispute!

Louis Vuitton - Pretty print day dresses and bustier-topped party looks were shown on models who wore their hair in Veronica Lake waves, accessorized with brooches made of wood, papier-mâché, and pearls, and sported beaded socks that alluded to 1940's hosiery shortages.
