Alexander McQueen Resort 2015

Sarah Burton wove together a collection that was simultaneously sculpted and sharp-edged.

Using references ranging from Matisse cutouts to vintage kimonos to traditional men’s wear fabrics, creative director Sarah Burton wove together a collection that was simultaneously sculpted and sharp-edged. Coats and dresses with exaggerated hips came in exploded black-and-white patterns inspired by a Prince of Wales check along with bright blue embroidery at the bottom. Loose coats with wide raglan sleeves were worked in thick, paintbrush-stroke details that recalled traditional Japanese dress.


Leather played a starring role — neat dresses had laser-cut panels buttoned onto their sides, forming a sharp A-line silhouette; skinny, high-shine coats mixed real leather with vinyl. Embellishment came in the form of colored Perspex flower petals sewn around the necklines of dresses and multilayered silk flowers embroidered onto fitted organza gowns creating a 3-D effect.
