Alexander McQueen Lady Gaga Collaboration

Lady Gaga in the Alexander McQueen Armadillo ShoesOMG please don' t let this be an early April Fool's Day joke!! There's a rumor going about that Lady Gaga, Alexander McQueen's "unofficial muse," will be creating a capsule collection for the brand. It's been a stormy year for the fashion house, with its founder found dead during NY Fashion Week. This collaboration would certainly be some positive news and help establish the brand's direction post-McQueen.

At this early stage little is known about the capsule collection. It is believed, however, that it will sit alongside the main Alexander McQueen line, like the McQ by Alexander McQueen diffusion - I hope it's also more affordable like McQ! It's possibly going to be called 'Poisson D'Avril', a reference to the poison seen in Lady Gaga's Telephone video.

UPDATE: Officially an April Fool's Day rumor :( Man I hate that

This is interesting, but the person behind Gaga is her stylist.. and her stylist should be the one designing that!!

Ooo, good point! I feel like I read an interview with her stylist once, but I barely remember anything about it! He or she should get more credit and press!

Poisson D'Avril is basically translated to April Fool (April fool, literally "April fish")....

the poisons in her Telephone video were a shout out to star wars "The poisons: Fex-M3 is from the Star Wars extended universe, Meta-cyanide is from Dune, and Tiberium is from Command and Conquer."

Well, if I had stated this was news as opposed to a rumor going around, I would say I shouldn't have posted it, but since I said it was a rumor you all are lucky I didn't assume it translated as poison of Avril Lavigne!
