Slightly moody and dark before, we saw the most beautiful side of Alexander McQueen, portrayed through Sarah Burton’s most personal approach, so far. “I wanted it to be believable, touchable, soft”, she said. And the collection was all of the above. Fresh faced models with tousled hair (natural beauties) showed off a collection filled with the most romantic designs. High collars, corseted bodies and long cuffs gave the looks a Victorian inspired touch. Ruffles, lace, floral embroideries and hand panted roses (even on some wooden clogs) added even more femininity. And then there was this color palette of pale pinks off whites and black. If it wasn’t for the two denim looks that interrupted the dreamy vibe (an attempt perhaps to give the historic appearing collection a modern touch . It was one country inspired collection of Oscar worthy gowns given character by heavy jewelery (body cross chains and chandelier earrings) and the finishing of the dresses, which was slightly off (tattered lace, shredded details, frayed ends). We’re feeling this gentler vibe.
