Alexander McQueen Resort 2012
Sarah Burton had the world buzzing when it was revealed she was the designer of the royal wedding dress, and with these marvelous designs, it's unsurprising why she was chosen. Not so much whimsical as streamlined and completely utilitarian, the pieces for the Alexander McQueen resort 2012 collection were nonetheless beautiful and exquisitely tailored.
Emphasizing clean lines and non-fussy silhouettes, I was almost shocked at how straight-forward this collection was in its designs. But that's the thing with Burton- in her capable hands, even the simplest look can look anything but.
