Winter furs at Alexander McQueen

All hail the new queen – Sarah Burton. With the McQueen legacy on her shoulders, the design protégé earned her stripes with this fall collection, demonstrating why she was chosen to carry on this design house. “Icy” was how she defined this show, and it lived up to the word, the simple colors of black and white giving way to sharply chic looks. The plastic barettes on every inch of the models’ heads added a reflective futuristic touch to the proceedings, and they just added to the show’s vibe. Not meant for reality, these clothes were a vision in workmanship and a worthy tribute to the house of Alexander McQueen.

Perfectly icy dresses from Sarah Burton

The silhouettes were classic McQueen, but revamped with Burton’s feminine twist. The sharpness was softened, fur and flowing fabrics breaking the stiff mold. The fur blurred hemlines, cuffs, and shoulders, and the organza spilled out from dresses and adorned skirts. The colors were like winter, and the clothes are clearly meant for that season. Any ice queen would proudly wear these clothes, from the structured dresses with the feathered skirts to the furred up coats to the cute white dresses. The showstoppers at the end were pure couture, and the dress with the collaged bodice was like a beautiful broken mirror. Burton brought serenity to the ice, and the combination was a magical one.
