It’s too early to tell what the future holds for Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen, but from the look of her first collection for pre-spring, the vista is promising indeed. Case in point: the strapless and draped printed chiffon in red and black — a stunner. Inspired by Hans Bellmer’s dolls and samurai warriors, Burton said she wanted to “juxtapose the pale and the delicate with the bold and armorial. It’s about a highly structured torso that gives way to a more fluid silhouette or drop waists that lead to a finned trouser or skirt.” Materials include lacquered raffia, hand-worked lace, wool crepe and silk — in pinks and white with flashes of red, mint green and gold.
