Alexander McQueen lives on, thanks to his creative director Sarah Burton. She so successfully reinterpreted McQueen’s elegantly elaborate vision for the Resort 2012 collection… and of course, here are a few of my absolute favorites:
laser cut lace + Victorian elements
I’ve been seeing laser cut lace much more frequently than usual – trend alert! I utterly love how Burton couples the lace element with Victorian details like coattails and peplums – it makes those pieces that much more romantic.
Given how much I adore lace and all its beauty, I’m going to have to invest in a few laser-cut styles… although probably not McQueen (to my dismay).
all that glitters is gold
I also love how the fabric is layered so beautifully, lightly, and gracefully – making these already enchanting dresses emanate the most ethereal magnificence. Oh how I wish I had an occasion to wear one (or all) of these McQueen dresses!
It also wouldn’t hurt if I could afford one (or all) of these either. What the hell is sweetcakesnmilkshakes? I should rename my blog, “The Open Diary of a Girl Who Can’t Afford Any of the Designers She Posts About.” Sad trombone.
Can you believe I haven’t seen the McQueen Exhibition yet!? Must. Make. The. Time. (that I don’t have).
