Dutchie Jessie Bloemendaal led the model parade at Alexander McQueen this morning. All girls had their hair slit back as if their heads were shaved. Statement chokers and chunky earpieces accompanied their rather folkloric looks. Creations inspired by a trip to the Shetland Isles, which Sarah Burton and her designteam made earlier this year. The wildlife they witnessed there led to light weighted dresses (ruffled all over, with mutton sleeves and lace details) matched with leather belts and bodices. Look 10, a colourful knitted patchwork ensemble , looked particularly folkloric and was followed up by a series of McQueen’s signature tartan attires. A handful of suits as a contrast to the heavily embroidered flower dresses that were added later on in the collection. The finale of beautifully crafted (including wildlife embroideries), floor sweeping and most delicate dresses looked breathtaking and must have kept Sarah and her team occupied all some. While most of us hardly come up with a photo album of a recent trip Sarah turns her memories into dream dresses. What a way to elaborate on your latest trip.
