Alexander McQueen Fall/Winter 2015-2016 ready-to-wear collection.
It has all the McQueen ingredients: drama, royalty, revolution, gothic beauty and Sarah Burton’s latest collection ticked all of the above and then some.
Alexander McQueen fall winter 2015/2016 collection is inspired by rose.
On the catwalk Burton offered up the purest distillation of what she called „the spirit of the rose,“ a flower that begins with a tight bud that opens into a lush bloom and then eventually collapses back onto itself in gorgeous decay.
Sarah Burton explained:“I was thinking about the female form, and some pictures David Sims took of roses,” ….. “There’s such beauty in all stages of the life of a rose. So there’s this sense of a woman, who becomes slightly unraveled as she goes along and her clothing starts peeling away. . . .”
