Fashion: Alexander McQueen pre-fall 2012

Extravagantmesmerizing and elegant will be the right words for this McQueen pre-collection I think. It’s all about the shapes/the silhouette, the materials, the textures, the colors and the details (!).

Sarah Burton, the designer, says that she found inspiration “By researching folk art and Romany art, which then became Spanish, and then it all somehow linked up with Victoriana and fifties couture”. The thing we most definitely can learn from this, is that inspiration is such an amazing and powerful thing.

So, let’s get inspired I guess.

  1. Mar, this is seriously beautiful! Die vrouwelijke vormen, die dansende randen: i love it! Die zwarte jurk met die rode binnenkant, tjongejonge. Echt een top collectie!
