This Alexander McQueen plexiglass visor from Fall Winter 2012 collection must be the “IT” item of the moment. It’s everywhere! From the fashion gurus, Anna Dello Ruso to Bryanboy, women to men’s fashion shoot in different magazines from different countries.
It would never have occurred to me the most commercialise-able product being shown in the collection was the sci-fi visors. I thought sci-fi visors = catwalk prop that works great in pictures. Smart of them really, because the super-modern oddness of the futuristic/sci-fi look is about the most exciting new trend out there right now. Two of my personal favourite for-me-to-wear Autumn/Fall collections were Alexander Wang and Balenciaga, both resolutely futuristic looking in their approach. But hey if McQueen are boldly giving us the opportunity to go all Star Trek with our Autumn/Fall look, why not? It only costs £270.
