It’s safe to start my S/S 2012 reviews with an awaited collection from Alexander McQueen. The late designer was known for his eccentricity that challenged conservative minds. That’s what’s good about a McQueen collection; you’re amazed during the show and you’re left wondering about each piece. Sarah Burton took over and did a revamp of the designer house based from her area of expertise, womenswear, which greatly translates in recent McQueen collections.
Just like last year’s show, the pieces are more wearable than during McQueen’s reign. This time, the colors are muted and the silhouettes aren’t as fun. It was the revenge of the ruffles, which was really feminine and strong at the same time. Nevertheless, Alexander McQueen as a brand really knows how to put on a good show.

Figure Styling: Fresh from PFW

A girl can only dream of a ticket straight to Paris Fashion Week but with the help of online fashion portals, we get an inside scoop on fashion’s much awaited week.

A veteran showstopper has not ceased to wow us in spite of the chief designer’s tragic death. In February 2010, every fashion-speaking person grieved the loss of an iconic designer who has done nothing but make avant garde fashion understandable and wearable: Alexander Mcqueen.

Alexander McQueen, now a label watched over by Sarah Burton, seems a bit tamed but nonetheless extraordinary— the silhouettes are simpler and the use of patterns and color is more sophisticated and delicate. The Fall 2011 collection was shown in Paris Fashion Week on March 8, 2011.

The collection started with ice princesses— pieces done in snow white— progressing to furry light grays and eventually focused on the black, structured pieces. The last few gowns would make you want to get married tomorrow, including the black sweeper.

A McQueen item is never just a dress, a shoe, or a jacket. Each McQueen is evidently done with keen details, the level of intricacy of which is highly recognized. Each piece is a structure and above that, each one is a work of art.
