Alexander McQueen’s strong silhouettes and elaborate detailing for fall 2013.
Alexander McQueen’s Pre-Fall and Ready-to-Wear 2013 Collections was strong and powerful. Sarah Burton has created two collections that respectively reference the religious realm and the Elizabethan era, resulting in an austere but feminine presence about them.
What we love about the collection: Silhouettes are long and lean, with the occasional volume in flowy capes and balloon sleeves. Dresses with lots of detailing like the baroque metallic embroidery, beads and pearls embellish necklines, collars and dresses. We love the continuity and subversive element injected in the accessories too: metal toe-capped boots, pearl-studded platforms and the iconic skull knuckle duster clutches rendered in dramatic effect.
