Archive for the ‘Sarah Burton’ Category

Quick introduction about the House Alexander McQueen which just got a full-rework of the design of their website which is now just amazing, you can follow different experiences through their videos of collections (you don’t have to look at style.com now! You have everything and even more on their own experience page)

A designer that I really like is Sarah Burton, I cannot say how much I love her work, sadly she stills in the shadow of Lee, obviously she cannot have the same fame as Raf or Slimane but she is playing at the same level. From her last collections at Alexander McQueen as his successor she made an amazing work and something really caught my attention, in every season collection (so excluding Pre-Fall and Cruise) models have their head covered by a mask. An example picked among past collections (from right to left) AW12, AW13 and SS12. I would have an idea of the why, as we all know that in Fashion the arty side of the DA are really important and we know that Lee was really special, like a butterfly stuck in his cocoon (is that why we can find so many times the butterfly print?). I will not try to relate it to the death of L.McQueen but I can imagine that this trend is there to carry an idea, a phenomenon that sometimes you cannot fully express yourself through your creation, your are trapped by your environment.

(from right to left) SS12 (yes another one), SS13 and an example of the PAW12 that I really like and which confirm this trend inside the house to wear a mask only for the core collection. When Lee was still alive he covered some models with a hat covering the whole head of the model but not all of them just few for each catwalk, and now S.Burton is covering every single head which will pass through the catwalk.

Now, at 9 Savile Row you will find an Alexander McQueen Menswear store (and menswear only) as we are in the heart of tailoring in our menswear world. With this store the house wants to get back on menswear as tailoring is really important for them and it was especially important to Lee, as Sarah Burton told the Times: “Lee really wanted a shop on Savile Row […] That’s why we’ve got a picture of Lee here.” (see picture #3). In this store you will find the biggest stock of RTW and accessories in the world and you will find the finest tailoring service by the house.
Opening this store grants Lee’s wish and proves once again that Sarah Burton was the perfect heir. 

Cheers,

Thomas
