Strong Shoulders And Samurai Warriors At McQueen
After seeing Sarah Burton’s striking RTW men’s looks for Alexander McQueen, we were even more excited to see her cruise collection creations. Burton brought out some McQueen staples including strong shoulders, textured materials, and bold looks with inspiration drawn from samurai warriors and Hans Bellmer’s dolls.
Burton told WWD, she wanted to “juxtapose 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.”
