London, lace edge, and wildflowers

One thing that is ever-present in all of Sarah Burton’s Alexander McQueen collections is the essence of poetry, and Pre-Spring 2021 was no exception. Created during quarantine, Burton’s collection was crafted mainly with fabric from the brand’s stock that were renewed through overprinting and over-dying. Throughout the collection structure plays a major role with sharp silhouettes that create sculptural shapes around the wearer's body. From printed gowns , to double breasted suits, to lace edge dresses, the collection echoes the elegance that represent the house. London, lace edge and wildflowers were a few of the key words Burton used to describe the collection’s essence from which she took inspiration. Accessories were also a major part, with each ring, shoes and bag representing the same elegance and poetry of the main collection.
