Military, LockStep!

Military styling has had a home in fashion for many many years.  There is just something so powerful and chic about a strong line or crisp cuff.  Military fashion has taken an advance step in recent years with "interpretive" military looks.  Many still concentrate on buttons and cuffs but many are moving to a new military aesthetic.  The Alexander NcQueen 2011 Fall/Winter Ready to Wear Collection is such a beautiful take on the military style.  The designs look like regal medieval warrior women.  The beautiful golds and reds, neutrals and muted tones create a military look that steps aside form the traditional crisp clean styling  There is so much power in the garments, ther is a fierce look in these looks, the models look like they are ready for any battle.  The hairstyling also brings forth that warrior look, this is a fantastic collection.

   Now believe me when I say I cannot get enough of the traditional military look.  Balmain's Christopher Decarnin used my boo Michael Jackson for inspiration for garments in past collections.  MJ who for as long as he could grow a mustache has mastered the military style perfectly, he always looked like he was headed to a war of musical fury and he always won.  King of Pop and Military Style!
