Alexander McQueen - SS 2011

Sarah Burton's debut collection all on her own. She has taken over the house after the sudden passing of Mr. McQueen earlier this year; the obvious choice for she has been his right hand lady for 15 years! She kept some of Alexander's signatures, but made changes to them. For example the tail coats; still in, but now more softened; emphasis on shoulders; went from hard and peaked to relaxed and slashed open.
The show started as a "white canvas, steadily reclaimed by nature."
(Embroidered fronds, leaves of black leather, raffia trimmed brocade, dress made of monarch butterflies, and massive amounts of feathers)
Here are my Favs!

Models: Juju Ivanyuk, Theres Alexandersson, Sophie Srej, Lilli Ji, Lisanne de Jong, Esme Wissels, Kristina Romanova, Patricia van der Vliet, Karlie Kloss, Frida Gustavsson, Jac, Nimue Smit.
