After a couple of years of soft and gentle collections, this time Sarah Burton has taken Paris with impetus. It was truly Alexander McQueen aesthetic in easy to approach form, perfect to adapt for a daily use. The entourage of it were messy hairstyle and natural makeup. It was strong, but perfectly balanced with sensitive romanticism exposed in the decor of clothes and jewellery.
The clothes were inspired with folklore and with 17th Century. The climate of it was brought with aged fabrics, draperies, frills. Amazing how in between these inspirational Victorian referrals the bohemia slipped in with its hand printed patterns and embroideries.
The jewellery took an important part here. It was girded across the body over tailored total white or black looks. It nearly verged with fetish, yet when so skillfully used it only boosted the romantic and fragile form of the collection.
