Alexander McQueen’s posthumous Fall/Winter 2013 collection displays a strong sense of the brands original knack for taking traditional pieces and injecting them with refined sartorial elements. The collection takes inspiration from traditional English Edwardian culture, heavily featuring suits, robes, cardigans and trench coats. The former sees a selection of classic pinstripe silhouettes met by a dashing red and black capsule of turtlenecks and color-blocked outerwear, before shifting into more neutral tonal layered jackets, vest and shirting. The latter exhibits more Gothic aesthetics: an interspersed of ornate stain-glass designs on full-piece suits followed by more subtle velvet garments, before applying the classic polka-dot pattern over a panel of extravagant attires. With a blend of traditional detailed cutting applied with uncanny print elements, Sarah Burton again delivers an abstract collection honoring the late-great designer.
