MCQueen Monday #9 - Spring 2015 Ad Campaign Unveiled

  Released in Fashion Times  today is the Alexander McQueen spring campaign 2015. The images will run in the American and British Vogue, W and Interview magazines. They are also set to be on Alexander McQueen's website and social media pages.

  The campaign photo shoot was shot by British photographer David Sims, on location in a London studio, and with German model Karolyn Wolter wearing Sarah Burton's kimono-inspired wardrobe.

All photos are credited to David Sims and Alexander McQueen.

  There will probably be more images in the magazines and the company's website but for now we only have these two.

  I for one am not impressed with what I see but then again we are not talking about normal clothes. I am fine with Karolyn's androgynous look a la David Bowie, even with the bell bottoms. But for me there is something missing and I can not put a finger on it. There is no life to it. It's dead. Maybe that is the look they were going for but it has left me flat. Oh well, to each their own.

Another Little Note

Today I am feeling good. That is something to celebrate, I suppose. I am trying to write in my other blogs and to spend time to do more reading. Despite or in spite or however it is supposed to be worded I still feel like blah. Either that or laziness. Being out in the sun does help after I come in but not for long, unless I am in the kitchen/dining area because that is where the most windows are. Lights on in the house do not seem to work well for me but I do what I can...which is all we can do.

  I try to find inner peace to calm me and lift me out  of my anxiety in simple things. Like the blue jay that I sometimes hear in the morning squawking. I love its sound and try to find it either looking out the kitchen window while getting things done at the sink or when I go to feed the outside cats in the morning. I have yet to see it so I think the jay must be high up in the crepe myrtle where I can not see it.

  I also look at the sky and hope not to see not many clouds. I love the feathery white clouds against the blue sky, especially when it is not cold. There is just something peaceful and centering about the sky. Like it is a reminder that there are bigger things out there beyond the sky.

I looked straight up earlier this month and took this picture

 Then there is the night sky when the stars are not hidden by the clouds and the moon, when it is not new. I am trying to develop a like and appreciation of the new moon. I love being able to go out my front door on a clear night and look up and see Orion up there. He is my favorite, I guess because he is easy to see and recognize. I've tried looking for either the Big Dipper or Little Dipper but have never been able to find them. Anyway, I don't know quite what it is about the night sky that I love but I do love it.

  I know I am prattling on but surprisingly it has lifted my spirits a bit. Thank you for taking the time to read this simple and rambling post.
