McQueen for Target

Ok, let's get this straight. This isn't actually Alexander McQueen, it's McQ, his diffusion line that is a helluva lot less. It's not as leather-and-studs, dominazi as is regular stuff - it's like, McQueen for Americans. So not only is this a for-Target line, but its a diffusion line's for-Target line. Which probably means ole Alex didn't touch, see or think about any of these designs.

That being said, they aren't that bad. And Target knows that people will buy, so the average piece is about $50-60 (which is a bit much - these Target lines have the staying power of a season). I got the lookbook today and chose a few of my favorite looks for you, my lovely readers. And this is pretty new. There is some benefit, I suppose, in using your job to better your blog.















What I really like are the shoes - which I don't think are a part of the collection. I totally dig the vest/shirts with the halters, and I've been looking for a good tux coat.

Further proof that when even the King of Rock Fashion needs cash nowadays, we are in a very dire predicament.

thanks for posting the lookbook!! the shoes kinda look like Preen for Topshop(http://content.coutorture.com/2517775), but not in the same materials?

Thanks so much! The shoes DO totally have that Preen vibe. Sigh - oh Topshop, how even your cheap stuff is expensive...
