Alexander McQueen Spring 2012 RTW

PARIS, October 4, 2011

Alexander McQueen is one of the brands I am looking forward to seeing every Fashion Week. Though he died last year, his works will always be thought as intense and passionate as shown in the groundbreaking exhibit at the Met. Thank God he has been a good mentor to Sarah Burton, Alexander McQueen’s new creative director.

Post-Lee Alexander McQueen, I personally found the collections a little less dramatic. Though every piece of them were amazing, I thought there should be more shock value. That there should be more to fire up a controversy. But upon seeing their latest Spring 2012 RTW, I found a new respect for Burton. Her shock tactics is now visible. Bizarre pieces covered the models’ face. Breasts were shown.

Burton said that her inspiration in making this collection is “..Gaia.the wonder of nature, the sea.” There were lots of pleats, ruffles, and aquatic-inspired prints that made the models sea goddesses. The designs just makes a woman as graceful as a jellyfish moving, as stunning as pearls, but as sinister as a barracuda men should fear.

Kudos to Sarah Burton and long live Lee McQueen!
