Alexander McQueen Resort 2011

This is Sarah Burton’s first kick at the Alexander McQueen womenswear line since Alexander has died. I have to admit, I’m liking this Resort 2011 collection.

It’s a safe collection and you can see the difference a woman’s touch makes. It’s a much softer collection that manages to keep a lot of traditional McQueen elements.

  1. Sarah Burton has big shoes to fill; think 12 inch McQueen heels. I think these pieces demonstrate that she has full intention of keeping Alexander McQueen’s creative genius alive in this resort collection. The clothes are beautiful and exotic, just the way an Alexander McQueen collection should be. I can’t help to think of Lady Gaga when I see this collection which makes sense since she was his muse. I’m most in love with the long cream/peach layered dress and the cleavage baring gray belted dress. Both are just perfect and I can’t wait to try them on. I look forward to Sarah’s future McQueen collections and if they resemble this resort collection, she is definitely on the right McQueen inspired path.
