McQueen’s signature use of complex structure was in full evidence as he paraded a range of super short dresses with exaggerated hips. Kaleidoscopic abstract prints were used on skinny trouser suits and minidresses, and curve-skimming dresses came in wet look taffeta.
An asymmetric dress made of swagged silk embroidery threads gave a new twist to fringing whilst dramatically nipped-in leather corsets sat atop silken cropped harem pants. The knots and whorls of a wood print added drama to a gathered cape dress.
Black, silver and gold formed the mainstay of the collection, with a brown palette seeping into bronze. Canary yellow highlighted.
Silks were used in the draped pieces whilst taffeta and leather gave substance to the more rigid styles.
