Life after McQueen

1 Jul

It’s been nearly 5 months since Alexander McQueen took his life, leaving the fashion world in an upheaval. After his passing, it was announced his label would live on under a new creative director, Sarah Burton. Just the other day, McQueen released their Cruise (pre-spring) 2011 line, & I must say- this is some of the best shit I have seen for the pre-spring season. Burton said the collection is inspired by Hans Bellmer’s dolls & samurai warriors. She also stated that she wanted to “juxtapose the pale & the delicate with the bold & 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.” I am so excited to see the rest of the collection.
