WWD reveals Sarah Burton’s first collection for Alexander McQueen Cruise 2011.
Inspired by Hans Bellmer’s dolls and samurai warriors, Burton said she wanted to “juxtapose the pale and the delicate with the bold and 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.”
They say the strapless and draped printed chiffon in red and black is a stunner and that materials used in the collection include lacquered raffia, hand-worked lace, wool crepe and silk — in pinks and white with flashes of red, mint green and gold.
I’m not a McQueen expert and I look at everything from a ready-to-wear perspective and this looks like a stylish ready to wear collection.
