Not gonna lie, I’m a little bit disappointed in McQ for Target. I was hoping for something a little more awesome and a little less Hot Topic Goth, because when I think McQueen, I envision mad scientists from India or butterfly headdresses. And from the disappointments I’ve experienced at the Go International collections (what with Mass Market Saleability and Low Cost of Production, etc etc), I can understand why the collection is more lackluster than normal McQueen. I think somehow I knew the end was near when I heard the colors would be blue and pink and not, say, red. Or plaid.
However, the proverbial fat lady has yet to make her appearance, so I’ll be waking up early to check these babies out come March. Maybe there’ll be some gems in person (I have my eye on that black blazer). We shall see.
