Alexander McQueen spring 2017 paris



Sarah Burton step to the head of the class! Now, Sarah please take note that this is not because you presented a such a perfectly salable and wearable collection but because firstly you carry on the name in the most glorious of ways, secondly because your clothes with workmanship that can only rival those of the haute couture and lastly because when you do hit the nail on the head it is with a sledge hammer.

There are few who can possibly imagine let alone render or conceive of the crocheted doily and a fair isle and mate them yielding an unbelievably beautiful work of art. Sarah is the storyteller, the dream maker who can do it all with seeming ease. Yes, of course there are some clunkers and some, well maybe ill-conceived looks but who cares. The black on black jackets are beyond the scope of fabulous and the engineered plaids are just works of art in themselves in their kaleidoscopic nature; special notice of the web like laces and crochets as well as the painted and embroidered leathers.

As ever, tailoring takes a starring role with jackets and coats to covet, yes this is a high concept special interest designer who just sits atop the heap of so many others who call themselves designers and supposedly compete in this arena. Once again KUDOS... BRAVO... BRAVA and most off all... Please don’t leave us until you are ready!
