Alexander McQueen Resort 2012: Sarah Burton Does It…Again
Designer Sarah Burton really has had quite the run…or rather quite the year…on top of amazing collections season after season for Alexander McQueen, she was also the chosen one who designed Kate Middelton’s wedding dress. And Burton like a good wine that only gets better with time, just keeps pushing the forefront of fashion’s creativity, design wise. Her latest collection which she described as “Romantic Utility” was all about military jackets, long lace silhouettes, tough-like corsets and subtle, yet classic to McQueen-form gold accents. The attention went to the fitted waists with pant ensembles but also softened up with gorgeous tulle gowns and structured skirts. I loved that Burton was able to incorporate animal print accents without them seeming too overwhelming. Where there definitely was a masculine feel, Burton also managed to keep it romantically feminine. Her summation of Alexander McQueen Resort 2012, like her designs, couldn’t have been more on point.
