Alexander McQueen

Spring 11

The look Sarah Burton’s grasp of Alexander McQueen’s vision and his design desires was palpable in her debut collection for the house. The uneasiness often felt with McQueen’s creations was still present but toned down. A woodland, earthy theme came to the fore.

Key pieces Embroidered corn stalks and autumnal leaf prints featured. Gone were the signature bones and skulls and in their place was a print redolent of the hard shell casings found on woodland insects.

Commercial appeal The misogynistic shapes of McQueen’s legacy still featured, but the tailoring and overall execution felt more relaxed, feminine and wearable.

Footwear and accessories Peep-toe shoe boots with hook and eye fastening and chunky black boots featuring pirate buckles were highlights.
