You'd think so wouldn't you?
I was re-watching McQueen's Givenchy Haute Couture from winter 1999 only yesterday and it really is blatant that the work you are seeing is the work of a genius. He could do things that only the few designers could do - he could create something modern and unique from a historical concept, he could take exquisite fabrics, unique silhouettes and stunning embellishments and combine them all to create a harmonious balance in a garment which at the same time flatters the wearer and makes them desireable to others.
That is a lot of criteria for the person designing under his name to accomplish.
As much as I consistently dislike Burton's work at McQueen, who would replace her? What designer in the world could do the brand justice?

Beautiful, but I expected a lot more. I'm kinda getting tired of the same elements and silhouettes every season, but I can't deny how beautiful the clothes look

Can she just quit already? Maybe she could become a costume designer for "Game of Thrones" since she's constantly using pre-renainssance ideas of fashion.

I love the execution as well, it was truly stunning 10 pieces. However, the silhouette repeatedly use season after season. I think it's about to move to a new shape.

Wow the pearl details are incredible. But other than that, I think it's time to shut this label down. You can't keep the aesthetic alive if you can't go beyond the gimmicky stuff. McQueen ventured far, but every once in a while he always came back. There were often wearable pieces from his collections, despite the initial gag reflex. With Burton, it's like "Oh Alexander would have done this, so I'll do it" - which is exactly what we would expect from her, but then that's all you got. You don't get the other stuff that I mentioned.

So not RTW, but I love it anyway. Everything's gorgeous (except for the feathers), and the detailing is insane.

The chainmail looks are cool and the details sublime.

But I do understand what people are saying about repetitiveness.

This is nothing new, but it's stagnant, and the idea is getting really old, Sarah

Thank you for saying it, thank you, I couldn't verbalize it this well

Despite the divine details, this collection still manages to be dull.

I'm so tired of her "same couple silhouettes but the details will make your eyes bleed" collections, she's been doing this kind if work since the beginning and while at first it packed the punch of the new, now it's just wearing us down and is getting mind numbing. People keep complaining about the Valentino duo being repetitive, but I think Sarah is far more guilty of it. I wish she would put more variety into her shows, even in the style.com review, it mentions she only used a few silhouettes. They usually praise her work on there but you know it's bad when they start bringing up the repetitive factor.
