The Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2011 Collection at Paris Fashion Week without any doubt can be called successful. This was the first catwalk collection after the Alexander McQueen’s tragic death in February. Sarah Burton, who now became the creative director of the brand, kept to the extravagant, powerful, edgy and a little aggressive McQueen’s style, but made the collection more light, soft and optimistic.

The designer used wild animal prints, mostly natural materials and golden embroidery. Stiffened silhouettes had weightless look, though they were constructed perfectly.
The corsette belts made from the leather leaves, that cinched bohemian style dresses, the monarch butterflies, that laced the neck and chest of a short dress, white military frock coats – all of those were remarkable highlights of the show.

In general the entire combination of fabric, textures, shapes and colors was perfectly underlining woman’s natural beauty.

Here is the Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2011 Collection:


The make up was not as aggressive, as McQueen’s. There were no whited-out faces and dark lips, Sarah Burton made models look fresh and young.

The show was absolutely magnificent and remarkable, Sarah Burton brought the fresh look to the Alexander McQueen’s house, at the same time keeping the McQueen’s spirit alive.
