FIRST LOOK: McQ - Alexander McQueen for Target

Ooooh, I've been looking forward to this...just as so many of you have been! Alexander McQueen's "McQ" line for Target hits stores on March 1st..., but the look book pics are out!

McQueen delivered a quasi-decent line-up for Target, but honestly I was expecting more originality since he's one of my very favourite avant-garde designers.

He tells WWD:
“Apart from the East and West Coasts, my company doesn’t have any visibility in the U.S.,” he said. “I always liked the idea of people in the Midwest wearing my clothes. The idea of this upstart from London going where people haven’t heard of me, I think that was interesting to me. I think it’s quite adventurous of Target.”

The collection looks very generic-junior with its leggings, slim leg jeans and tees, but is obviously a great way for him - and Target - to make a quick buck in these dismal economic times. I've picked out some of my favourites, but was not 100% impressed by the collection overall, so don't take my word for it — make yer own decision.

Of course, I'll still be throwing punches to grab my size in the pieces I do like before the rest of my bitches snatch them up... hee hee.

Yeah, I wasn't too impressed either. I guess I was expecting a lot more from him as well, but they ARE trying to make $.
I'll be fighting off the bitches too. lol

WOW, we definitely seem to have favorite designers in common!
I like the MCQ stuff for Target, but it's not really much different than something you could go elsewhere to buy. I don't think I'll be spending my money on it even though I was previously excited to do so. Bummer.
