I like how Sarah Burton is now doing more of her own thing. I like the collection though in McQueen terms it was a bit tamed at times. Sarah can afford to be a bit more out there in future collections.
I think this is really beautiful, especially seeing the details and all the workmanship that has gone into each and every piece. I love that Sarah is taking the McQueen spirit and making it her own. There is nothing more we can ask for than Sarah making it her own and not be taunted by living in McQueen's shadow. At some point, we have to move on from McQueen and fully embrace Sarah's take on the label. And she is doing a wonderful job.
This collection is very elegant and clean and it's a lot lighter and airier than what McQueen had given us. It's very romantic with a touch of fetishism with the leather harnesses and the killer industrial shoes. I love the duality of hard and soft in each look and the variety of outerwear, pants, suits, and dresses. The more I look at this collection, the more I fall in love with it.
at first i thought "what is this???" it's mcqueen, but without the "big idea". but really, he's gone now. we're not going to get the showmanship. we're not going to get the over the the top presentation. but what sarah delivered was an incredibly honest interpretation of what she thought lee would have given us this season. and she did a great job! the detail is incredible. and every look is wearable.
I didn't want to comment until I see the details and now I did so I'm gonna do so. First of all the theme "ice queen" is not exactly original but Sarah Burton executed this perfectly. The metals on the hair gave me shivers, it fits the theme perfectly. I'm not a fan of the repeated silhouettes (e.g. Nimue's dress) but overall I find this collection magical. I see McQueen but I see Burton more. She is definitely going in the right direction. Slowly we know what her aesthetic is. And those shoes with the spikes on... very fitting with the theme... TO DIE FOR!

I think Ms. Burton is doing a fine job at McQueen and being respectful of his legacy. Sarah is not McQueen, he was one of a kind. There is a certain risky element that Lee liked to evoke in every collection, whether it might have worked or not. This is a good collection but I just don't get the emotion behind . It is a group of finely detailed, exquisitely made, cut, decorated but they are a little soulless to me. However, I can't dismiss her tremendous talent and be appreciative enough of her effort of filling his larger-than- life shoes.
