Alexander McQueen Resort 2011

It's almost sad to say this, but if one didn't know that McQueen had tragically died some months ago, they wouldn't have known by just looking at the collections his line has produced since then. In his passing away, Sarah Burton has stepped in, effortlessly updating his design codes without losing any of the late designer's penchant drama.


I can't stress enough how excellent these clothes are. The tailoring is definitely in keeping with McQueen's aesthetic, so too the Victorian elegance and the brooding romanticism.


The tension between hardness and fragility that characterized McQueen's work was successfully sustained in defined shoulders and tailoring. Burton continued to hybridize fabrics with lace being transformed into chiffon in one cocktail dress.


One aspect of the collection that definitely stood out for me was how minimalistic, despite all the details and such going on, the pieces were. Anyone who can make McQueen minimalistic deserves high praises in my books.
