Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2011

I have to blog it out for the love of this collection *hearts*. Whenever people ask who is your favorite fashion designer, most people answered "Alexander McQueen". Well, i don't . Because he is simply fantastic. It is not easy for Sarah Burton to take over Alexander , the King of fashion. I'm impressed that she did "wow" me. Hmm, Maybe because the collection has something to do with me , like butterfly. If that design is something that i love, i will seriously love it til i have this feeling of "I want it too!". Most of the pieces has been "Soften". Relax is the new thing.

somehow this reminds me of some princess.
Let's say the modern princess.

butterflies sewn together into a dress and shoe. NICE!

I adore the craftsmanship.

what if i wear this???

Sarah Burton

"The tail coat is a trad McQueen piece, but here it was softened, its edges unfinished, and the hard, peaked shoulders that were another McQueen signature had been slashed open, relaxed.
Burton also softened the staging, a concept that was always so critical to a McQueen show. Where his narratives were often dark, discomfiting things, she opted for a nurturing atmosphere: a pagan, Earth-Mother-ly spirit. The woman in her show began as a plain white canvas and was steadily reclaimed by nature: wrapped in embroidered fronds, in leaves of black leather, in a raffia-trimmed brocade, in the wings of monarch butterflies or an enveloping mass of feathers. The craftsmanship was startling—that monarch butterfly dress, for instance, or a gown with a breastplate of gilded cornstalks and skirt of pheasant feathers, or another gown of pleated organza that looked like an unfolding sea anemone." - Source ,

Bravo Sarah Burton!! This is Ah-mazing....
