ALEXAN­DER MCQUEEN

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Collections Report -

This sea­son, even more than usual, Sarah Bur­ton and team show­cased a level of crafts­man­ship that would not look out of place on the couture cal­en­dar. Though just 10-looks strong, the col­lec­tion was an ex­er­cise in how fan­tas­ti­cal fash­ion can be in the hands of the right de­signer. Here, Bur­ton ex­plored El­iz­a­bethan dress and ele­ments of Catholi­cism, send­ing out McQueen in­ter­pre­ta­tions of car­di­nals, popes, and an­gels. Pleated, embellished ruffs; pearl-en­crusted shoes and head­pieces; jew­elled tights; gilded corsets; and dresses made of chif­fon, pearls, and os­trich feath­ers – th­ese ex­trav­a­gant cre­ations ex­uded breath­tak­ing beauty.
