So how did you like Alexander McQueen Spring Summer 2011? I’ll be honest with you and say I was afraid she would bring it all to pieces, just like they did with Valentino after he stepped down.
Sure, with Sarah Burton it was supposed to be different since she was his right hand for so many years. And it was pretty different indeed. The collection had the McQueen edginess only a bit softer, more feminine. And that’s not such a bad thing, is it? The way the fabric was twisted and bent look McQueen-ish enough for me, an outsider, and the regal, bourgeois feeling I got from this spring summer 2011 collection was blue enough to make it credible; also the Earth Goddess warmth and attitude charmed my heard and impressed my aesthetic eye.
In my perspective, the show was successful, Sarah was successful in keeping the Alexander McQueen spirit alive. What say you? Click through to see more images and a catwalk video! (images from the entire collection here)
