Alexander McQueen Cruise 2011

Immaculate detail, design, and tailoring are three adjectives I would use to describe Sarah Burton’s premiere line for McQueen. Absolutely stunning and I’m glad that the label will still be a work of art.

Inspired by Hans Bellmer’s dolls and samurai warriors, Burton said she wanted tojuxtapose the pale and the delicate with the bold and armorial. It’s about a highly structured torso that gives way to a more fluid silhouette or drop waists that lead to a finned trouser or skirt.”

The entire cruise collection is so on point and acute that I definitely have faith in Burton’s work. She stays true to the late designer’s vision and attention to detail, it’s truly amazing. I love it and can’t wait for a Spring line later in the Fall. From the raffia and lace to the fiery chiffon, this line is one of my favorites this Resort/Cruise season.
