Alexander McQueen s/s11

Now I will say this was probably one of the most anticapated shows of all the fashion weeks. What would the label produce under Sarah Burton, who showed the first collection since he tragic death of the labels namesake earlier this year.

Well what she did create was a collection which remained true to the label, there were no major digressions away from previous themes and some shapes and prints appeared familiar. A quick search of the internet will find complaints about this collection being a "best of" and lacking the drama of collections produced under the man himself, but I think the first collection post Alexander was always going to be a tentative, testing of the waters for whoever took the healm what with the fans and followers McQueen had gathered over the years. Were she to reveal a complete revamp of the label would have more than likely seen the end of her career. I expect as she becomes more comfortable in her new position and people get used to the idea of her we will start to see more ideas presented in the shows (also no one complains when Chanel do monochrome or tweed suits). I, myself, look forward to seeing what Sarah Burton can come up with in future and congratulate her on a very nice first collection.

What do you think about this collection?
