Alexander McQueen’s creative director Sarah Burton continues to garner top reviews as she adds a softer, more feminine touch to the collection’s theatrical DNA. This spring invest in hyper-feminine forms starting with honeycomb printed wasp-waist shifts and alluringly decorated gowns.
“Celebratory. Back to womanhood after last season’s overblown proportions,” said Sarah Burton of the collection. The designer has plenty to celebrate about, from her 2011 Designer of the Year title at the British Fashion Awards to designing of the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding dress and being named one of the 100 most influential people in the world in the 2012 Time 100.
And for spring awakening, the choice of textures and colours could not have been any more perfect. From shimmering golden blazers to bee-embellished slipper loafers and signature skull clutches accented with crystals, it’s one of the most glamorous tributes to spring we have ever seen.
