Alexander McQueen Stuns with a Dreamy Reality

By Eliza Jordan

February 26, 2016

Alexander McQueen presented quite a triumphant show in London last week. Sarah Burton—the house’s creative director since 2010—is due to have her third child in just a few weeks, which clearly did not hold her back from producing one of the best collections to date. With breath-taking treasures full of surreal flowers, clocks, pearls, floating lips, doves, and even a unicorn, McQueen for fall/winter 2016 derives from an existence somewhere between dream and reality.

As if caught in a spell, the spirit within the prints, embellishments, and boudoir-inspired evening dresses, was a beautiful, soft light in the dark. Sensual designs of embellishment appliqués covered just enough to the naked eye, and lingerie-like dresses were seen with moon-shaped cutouts, laser-cut lace, and patterns of butterflies, powder compacts, lips, and doves.

We saw many structured looks—both oversized silhouettes and barely-there materials that hung to just grace the floor—in vanity pink, pearl, midnight blue, silver, gold, and black. Ankle-strap heels in velvet and leather donned mirrors and showed ivory shearling or charm studs. There were velvet slippers, flora and fauna embroidered brogues, and touches of sweet butterflies and flowers in the models’ hair.

Consider us star dusted and spellbound.
