Designer: Alexander McQueen









Pre-Fall 2012 collection.

Dramatics at its best. Almost theatrical in its look and feel, here is a bit about the inspiration for the collection: “By researching folk art and Romany art, which then became Spanish, and then it all somehow linked up with Victoriana and fifties couture...” As far as the lines, the attention to strong shoulders, full skirts and cinched waists is so feminine. Additionally, some of the sleeves are so poetic and textural. But the fabrics, the textures, are amazing—I wish I could reach out and touch them! I really enjoy every single piece here—and you?

  6. Sarah - I so agree, they are so dramatic. The cinched in waists and the fur and the fabrics. Gorgeous. So iconic and I always find it quite haunting given what happened to McQueen himself. Lou x

  12. Hi my friend,

    I clearly need to make some more money so I can afford that dress "dipped" in rich purple. Divine!

    What an ugly week we had here in Seattle! We got our power back today after have been camping out in sleeping bags next to the gas fireplace. The kids loved the adventure though!

    Hopping to Stockholm tomorrow. Can I get you anything? And when I am back, let's pencil in my Vancouver trip.

    Hugs to you - miss you.
