Alexander McQueen

Ice maiden looks were softened by fur trims and undulating tulle.

The look In a beautiful move on from the label’s flora and fauna references used for spring 11, designer Sarah Burton delivered a collection straight out of Narnia.

Key pieces Ice maiden looks were softened by fur trims and undulating tulle. A close-cut wool jacket took on a bodice quality and was trimmed with soft white downy fur. Similar jackets were cuffed with black fur and teamed with tight leather skirts. However, two evening gowns stole the show, as swells of white organza, which rose and fell from fold to fold, cascaded down the catwalk, looking rather appropriate for a royal wedding.

Commercial appeal Burton cleverly manipulated traditionally daywear fabrics such as cashmere and furs and outerwear silhouettes into evening styles, creating a series of hybrid day-to-night dresses.
