Sarah Burton for Alexander Mcqueen S/S 2011



It all happened when I was in Milan, all eyes were on Sarah Burton, as she brought on her first major Alexander Mcqueen show during the Spring/Summer 2011 Paris Fashion Week. Big shoes to fit indeed, but we couldn't agree more with PPR's decision in appointing the late designer's right hand woman to be the creative director of the distinct label.

When Burton first spoke about the then upcoming collection last month about being less "angsty" and "softer", I thought it was just a "disclaimer", in case it didn't "fit" into the taste of existing Mcqueen fans or the whole strategic expectations play. To be honest, I thought the collection was spectacular, reflecting Mcqueen's spirit and essence with bold statements and intricate structuring. The line showed how closely Burton and Mcqueen worked together and understood each other during the last 14 years.

Straw bustier, ostrich feathers, butterflies, trademark digital prints and woven hair, just the way the founder would have done it.
