Sarah Burtons collection for Alexander McQueen was about sisterhood, about women’s milestones and rituals: birth, christenings, weddings, funerals. “It’s about being strong and emotional, but also staying it’s okay to show your vulnerability; not to have to put a brave face on it”, she stated. And so she sent out looks that were both cute and girly but also tough. Like the first few light colored lace dresses she paired with black leather belts (some with a leather peplum or apron attached to it) and boots. A few suits and sleeveless suit jackets with lace up detailing in the mix. And then the more voluminous floral printed dresses came on. Fran Summers looked extra tough in a black leather floral painted corset/torso with lace up skirt and boots. Her hair slick in multiple braids the show’s hairstyle. Then Laurijn Bijnen came out looking like a liquid dream in her silver sheer dress. Throughout the show we went back and forth from light to heavy, supple to sturdy, light to dark, arty to commercial. Some pieces will sell like hot cakes others were the statement makers that set the mood for SS2019. A flirty and sexy but gloomy mood.
