what this collection lacks is that exacting and precise message that occurs in every piece of a well manifested collection. There are some knock out looks, that hooded fur coat being one and I wish she had played more with these strong messages. You could get five or six looks out of that idea and they would all be fierce. She is however doing a great job, and this is up there with some of the better collections of the season, which is saying a lot for someone so recently thrust into the limelight. I think she still needs to find her rhythm and the McQueen brand will rule once more.

It's McQueen but with her own personal twist. I really like what she is doing with the brand.

It is beautiful but no genius here. McQueen gave something new every season. This, while beautiful, doesn't have the arresting quality of Alexander's collections. Still, one of my favourites of the season but I cannot help thinking what he would have done. I am sure it would have been something very unexpected

I don't like this at all.

It's as if a lesser designer tried their hand at the dark brooding, but romantic McQueen aesthetic, and this is the result. This lacks subtlety, reference, richness and atmosphere. It's very heavy-handed and flat. It's just taking some McQueen signatures and styles and applying it to basic dresses... Where are the amazing draping, sculpting and manipulation of materials?

The entire collection resembles a poor knock-off of McQueen.

I expect better from Sarah. Let's hope the next collection will be back to form for her and the McQueen legacy.

Adore. She is never going to be McQueen, those shoes are too big to fill, but she is doing the name justice while peppering the collection with her own flair and finesse. The shoes are tugging at my heartstrings too.

It's a trifle ordinary for Alexander McQueen; Sarah Burton seems to have turned the collections into wearable, relatively uninteresting clothes for ladies.
I don't see any innovation in this (exposed zips that open and shut and not much else aren't innovative).
The girlishness that Burton has injected into this house isn't welcome for me, she has tried to add his old hard edge with black and leather and studs, but mixed with those feminine shapes and Valentino fluffiness, it just feels like Temperley or worse, Marchesa.

I miss McQueen :'(

Different direction, same aesthetic. I like Sarah's approach to McQueen.

Theres lots of lovely things about this collection, but it seems a little disjointed. Perhaps they are trying to make sure the brand is sell-able.
I'm not too dissapointed.. but I hope it gets a bit more exciting in collections to come.

Are you out of your mind? How can you diss this collection?

Even the presentation seems much much more McQueen than previous seasons!

I see everything Lee used to do: the accesories, the styling, the wonderfully cut suits, the romantic and incredibly voluminous cascading dresses. And to top if it off, Sarah does inprint her own aesthetic with her touches of softness and femininity that we didnt see on Lee's work.

I love it, with Lee everything was about control. With Sarah its all about being soft ... and organic.

Im literally doing cartwheels after seeing the progression on this house, the one I hold dearest.

the black tie up boots are delish. I think she did a great job.
