Almost two years ago, in spring-summer 2010, the exotic charm of the underwater world became a source of inspiration for Alexander McQueen which resulted in the practically extraterrestrial creations presented at the catwalk in Paris.
A few seasons later, the same source of inspiration was used by Sarah Burton, the new creative director for Alexander McQueen. However, the result was quite different.
The smallest details, transferred with much effort and scrutiny from paper to the fabric of luxury ensembles, has turned Alexander McQueen Spring-Summer 2012 collection into something worthy of being called haute couture. If to compare this new Alexander McQueen collection with very simple and unattractive pret-a-porte collections presented at the current fashion week in Paris, it will strike us with its extraordinary beauty and luxury, and it does not matter if one is interested in evening gowns, decorated with almost royal pompousness, or a series of fairly simple, but at the same time infinitely elegant dresses and costumes, opening McQueen’s showing.
