Alexander McQueen Autumn 2012
Sarah Burton has been
about “a beautiful future” for fall:
“A kind of soft futurism.
Not cold and structured,
but optimistic and forward-looking”
Alexander McQueen was always inspired by nature,
moved by its darkly sinister forces.
Burton, by contrast used nature to propel her
light infused “women as flowers”.
Exploding petals, oversized pink
feather and organza blooms.
Extreme in a way that can only be McQueen,
hundreds of artisan hours spent building the 3D embroidered flowers, tucking, pinning,
hand placing marabou feathers,
the mirrored plexiglass visors
and heel-less hoof-like boots
each with a horseshoe in the platform.
Magic, isn’t it??
