Not quite a fan with what she did with the lacing, and a few of the looks look a little Chanel, no?

I like it, but I think spring was MUCH better.

I'm afraid Sarah Burton just doesn't have it. Hopefully this is an off season?

Some of the pieces are fantastic, though. The white fur coat?

Sorry this is so all over the place, I think I need to look at it again and collect my thoughts.

Fantastic collection. Sarah Burton really has the McQueen spirit while expressing her own at the same time.

Wow, Sarah Burton is doing her thing!!!

Lot's of bondage inspired pieces which are tough and sexy but there were some softer and more feminine pieces too.

What i love about Sarah Burton is that she has kept the McQueen aesthetic and signature style but made it all much more wearable than it was before. This will make the brand much more profitable!

I'm so glad to see this, for a while I thought the first two collections from her hands were good because they were trying to add the Sarah dosis little by little, but this is a great path for McQueen's line to follow.
This is what McQueen was so fond of, the mix between ladylike and rough! It is a ground that can lead to so many pahts...

Those lilac boots remind me of the ones from the 00' collections so much!!!

Not very McQueen--I guess it's to be expected. But how drastic!

Sarah Burton give to McQueen a more female perspective, i like it, this ice princesses are so great.
BUT i really think that she does better in pre fall and resort.

I'm pleasantly surprised that I really liked this collection. There are some pieces that I adore and others I'm on the fence.

Overall, I believe Sarah did a good job.

Not a fan of all the harnesses and leather elements, but this is starting to look less like McQueen's work, and in Sarah's case this is a good thing!
