Fall Shoes by Alexander McQueen 2012

Alexander McQueen
Fall/Winter Shoe Collection 2012-13

Whoever said that shoes had to be practical and actually wearable, obviously did not see the supermodels strutting down Alexander McQueen's Fall 2012 runway in those outlandish heels. Or should I say - no heels? Some of the unconventional pairs on show had no heels at all, but instead featured a curved metal 'horse shoe' sole. One would need to take a class to walk in them, I presume.

We can't deny the creative brilliance and virtuosity that Sarah Burton has harnessed when constructing these phantasmic pieces of shoe art. Ostrich feathers, shaggy fur, ruffles and rosettes, leather and suede all play a role in making this shoe collection one that surpasses anything we have ever seen before. In this fashion realm at least. 

The Fall/Winter 2012 shoe collection has been toned down from the ostentatious looks displayed on the runway, to a more - dare I say it 'sensible' range. The uber sexy sky-scraping ankle boots and nude shaded sandals will harmoniously fit in with a voguish winter wardrobe. However the sharply sculpted, frilled and fur-covered pairs may only find its place in the closets of the Lady Gaga's and Rihanna's of the world. Whatever your fancy, this collection does makes for captivating viewing.













I would secretly love to try on the pastel pink or red ruffled organza pair. 
I don't think I would get very far in it though. 
Are there any of these fanciful McQueen pairs that you would like to try on too?

Very nice shoes - but so difficult to walk !!

Denise said...

Mmm... the black opulence - I liked the shoes and boots that have the white lace... the ankle boots - the beige ones in the middle of the first line... and the neutral glamour is all very sweet! Other than that... I found all very creative, but not realy wearable, unless one is Lady Gaga... but that is just my opinion!

Lovely creativity, Sam!

Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

It takes McQueen to come up with NO HEELS! hahaha I can't imagine walking in them. I can hardly walk in the ones WITH a stem! LOL I've warmed up to McQueen though. Definitely keeps it interesting.

I do like the Neutral Glamour collection though, specifically the one bottom left - love me a bit of faux snakeskin!

haha I think some Jeffrey Campbell shoes are heel-less as well, and some people who've worn them say they're actually surprisingly comfy and not too bad to walk in. I think they'd be pretty tough to do so though, after a while! :P

Since I know I could not make it throughout the day in the extravagant styles, I'd still love to try them on for a few hours. Most of the black opulence styles in your board are practical.

Xixia said...

Oh gosh, looking at all of these is making me miss Alexander McQueen. I went to his exhibit in New York last summer, and it was just amazing. These shoes are so pretty - though they're purely eye candy to me. I don't think I could ever pull any of these off. ^^;
