We’ve been looking through the Pre-Fall collections and McQueen’s was absolutely a show-stopper. Reading about the thought process and inspiration behind the collection made it all the more intruiging. “This collection called on the motifs of high and low church, papal robes, clerical vestments and puritanical Amish dress.”
The piece with the cape (first image) definitely stands out not only because it bears a strong reference to the concept of the collection but is formally fascinating too. We also particularly enjoyed the intricate details on velvet and the jacquard stained-glass window patterns that featured on it. And the long pendants, just the perfect detail to finish of the looks. Bravo, Sarah Burton!
