The late, great fashion designer Alexander McQueen’s label lives on, and the newest offering is from the eye wear line. In these ads, we get a peek of what’s to come: Jackie O. and Speed Racer.

The Alexander McQueen brand is considering suing candy maker Cadbury for ganking their style. While we acknowledge that the new Cadbury Flake commercial (right) does resemble the Kate Moss hologram that floated above the McQueen runway a few years back, we still don’t get it. Why does McQueen care about a few similarities when the… READ MORE »
