AMAZING! Is all I can say about the Alexander McQueen Spring 2012 show. Sarah Burton puts out the most intricately designed art pieces, yes, I said ART, not clothing. They are just too breathtaking and beautiful.
The collection this season was inspired by sea life. You can see the texture of corals, barnacles, and crustacean in the clothing itself. It was not literal, but it was apparent. Though inspired by the sea, the dark romanticism didn’t leave, the soul of the fashion house was definitely prominent. There was also some classic McQueen aesthetics that were incorporated, like bondage. There was a sense of Catwoman too, but that goes along with bondage. You can click through some of the looks for the collection below.
