Well, Donatello Versace's 2011-12 Winter Menswear is a little Victorian and even a little steamy. At least it would be easy to steam up. Nice leather pieces.

There are McQueen collections older than the one's posted with a victorian vibe that can be found on style.com.



And don't forget Vivienne Westwood:

"The Mini-Crini collection saw an increasingly shaped look, the antithesis of the masculine shoulder pads and tight hip styles that were current in the 1980s. Westwood's historical research had led her to believe that clothes were about 'changing the shape of the body, about having a restriction'. She now wanted to 'make things that fitted'.
Inspired by the ballet Petrushka, Westwood devised a 'mini-crini' that combined the tutu with an abbreviated form of the Victorian crinoline."

::(source)::

"Mr. Bolton anoints Ms. Westwood as a founder of postmodern deconstruction whose innovations are being built on by current British fashion stars like John Galliano and Alexander McQueen."

I'm not sure this has anything to do with SP, but I thought there were some goods ideas in this Thom Browne collection. http://www.vogue.it/uomo-vogue/sfilate/sfilata/a-i-11-12/thom-browne

I'm quite surprised that so far no-one has mentioned Child of the Jago.  Unfortunately their prices make me wince  Sad

They have a couple of nice jackets- Wilde and 3 Penny were the ones I drooled over- but honestly, £700 just for one  Huh

Bebe Jacket


Now THAT I would wear.


 I would too deffinately...bit of the old Rennaisance/Golden Age era mens fashion...fantastic. Before I forget myself, I must compliment this Bebe Jacketsies, looks very beautiful...genuinally a superb image!

 I love A. Mcqueen. More for what inspires him.. A magnificent mind. Such a tragedy in loosing him.

I find the wearing of the two hats very interesting, more out of historical remniscence. The trilby in many respects is basically a minimalised form of a tricorn or bicorn hat. Did not the pirates wear a hat or hanky underneath their tricorn hats? Napoleon's soldiers wore something similar underneath their shakos and bearskins on the mission to Moscow too. That reminds me when I used to wear a wooly hat underneath my helmet when I was in the TA. With that in mind its a very good experiment with what we percieve in our modern times with fashion and historical forms with the trilby and head warmer etc. I kinda like that...I may use that for next winter!

I must say everytime I see these fashion shows, I am always reminded by the fashions they sport down the catwalk that they are more pieces of art work to inspire people in what to wear. Whether they are rich or not. If you can not afford them, it is upto you to make what inspires you here. This is what steampunk, or any other punk subculture for that matter is about. Do It Yourself.
 How many rich people you see wearing stuff like the stuff shown down the catwalk? Very much next to no one if we desregard Lady Gaga! Because these designs on the model's back are works of art that have come from the very hand of the designer themselves. When you make purchase of such garments you are very much paying for a limited edition print as though its a 2D or 3D work of fine art. Extra zillions when you pay for the very one that the likes of Mr Mcqueen worked on.
 We must always remind ourselves that shows like this are very much art exhibitions. And with what is shown here are remarkably inspiring stuff that can be cheaply made at home in all our punking tendencies! We could even modify to our own image that may improve it. The real issue in this debate of copyright is that they make money with their exhibitions they organise whilst we dont make any money at all when we attend events in the wears we love to flaunt no matter the inspiration!

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty
is on display at The Metropolitan Museum of Art from
May 4–August 7, 2011

McQueen's work is, of course, superb, and the exhibition design is wonderfully done to present all the different facets of his career.





http://blog.metmuseum.org/alexandermcqueen/about/  The video of the exhibit is great and highly recommended.

Individual pieces  http://blog.metmuseum.org/alexandermcqueen/objects/

And for more videos of his work, the MMOA website has put up many of his runway shows.

Loved many of these styles, Squire, but why are the trousers all so badly cut?  I can forgive the lengths needing adjusting, but the crotch areas do not fit any of these lovely men.  They look most uncomfortable to walk in.

That was very fun.  Love the fabrics. 

I am by no means a fashion maven, but once I read Ms. Frances' comment about the crotch areas, all I could do was focus there.   Wink  And I think she's right.

I have an image stuck in my mind of a longboat, and all the vikings on board are waving swords and wearing those outfits.

Those are nice clothes, but the models look like they'd rather be out plundering shipping lanes.  Cheesy

Wow! Some of those outfits were incredible. I'm not too sure about the choice of shoes in some cases though. And not a tie to be seen!

If Steampunk is destined to become (or at least influence) mainstream fashion, I think that this is the way I'd prefer it. Those Prada styles will inevitably trickle down to the high-street.

Loved some of the shoes and the different fabrics used in coats.  That coloured band around the neck reminds me of Napoleonic soldiers and was designed to make sure that they always held their heads high.

I'm not too keen on the rather narrow trouser-legs though.  You could see that one or two of the men were bow-legged.  Shocked

Those Prada clothes looked great actually, and Gary Oldman had just the right beard for it.

This is what I'm talking about!  Don't care for what I saw before the 2:00 min mark, but for the rest, some one gets it right.  This collection is also very modern if you look close at the details. Clearly 21st. Century.  Very futuristic, while firmly planted in the Victorian aesthetic. With a little push, this could catch on as an influence for real fashion wear in the street.

I've been looking for a potential uniform for Admiral Wilhelm with these type of traits ; military uniforms -even if very modern- can always retain some elements from the past; particularly formal dress uniforms.
