Ever since she took the hem at Alexander McQueen’s mythical fashion house, Sarah Burton has fascinated the industry with her undeniable talent to distill Lee’s distinctive aesthetic and preserve his legacy.
It’s such a pleasure to see in the Fall 2011 collection that Burton has infused her elegant femininity into the line that was otherwise known to be more rigid and firm. Who would’ve thought that simple colours of black, white, and grey can be so inventive and exquisite?
Feathers and bondages were married in perfect harmony, leather and tweed were seamlessly bonded by soft silk, hardware metal and velvet never looked so feminine together as a couple..
My heart felt for the organza corset gown and had no trouble envisioning a princess walking down the aisle dressed in such a precious garment.
Long live McQueen…and toast to the divine craftsmanship that is Sarah Burton.
