Alexander McQueen Plato's Atlantis Collection Stretch Dress, S / S 2010

About

New Alexander McQueen Collectible Stretch Dress S/S 2010 Collection Designer size 42 - US 6 Very Stretchy and Soft, Back Zip Closure. Made in Italy New without tag. Plato's Atlantis Spring/Summer fashion collection by Alexander McQueen The Plato’s Atlantis collection was inspired by the story of the lost city of Atlantis. According to the classical philosopher Plato, the city was submerged in seawater following a volcanic eruption more than 2,000 years ago. In a process of reverse-evolution, the human race regressed to an amphibian state, creating a glistening new species that McQueen brought to life on the runway. This was the imaginative concept behind McQueen’s most spectacular show. Before focusing on the technical aspects and intricacy of his work, McQueen did his research. Layers of references were epitomized in his designs.The study by the 19th century biologist Ernst Haeckel into marine life was a huge inspiration for Plato’s Atlantis. By mirroring structures from Haeckel’s drawings, McQueen found his vision. Another reference was the alien-aquatic species in McQueen’s favorite film The Abyss. Coral, fish skin and scales permeated the collection, which included a dress made from razor clam shells.
