What's the point of this collection? She moved the show from Paris to London just to show... this. And this collection is a mix of her lastest spring show and Gucci and Valentino. Really, at this point she's as bad as Rodarte. She is talented, her dresses are pretty, but come on, it's not enough.

There is no point in showing collection like this, it's not exciting or special and it won't be available to buy. There's no point in organising shows by this brand anymore, they can just send some clothes to shops. It's already been another zombie on the fashion map.

That golden unicorn dress sums it up perfectly. It's the worst look I've seen this season.

I can't believe this.

It's like a trashy Valentino.

Last season was much more successful, this just seems a watered down version of that. And she keeps on reiterating the same silhouettes time and time again, my god.

It's an overly-frilly redux of last season. Next please!

this is pretty bad. last season was amazing, her best work, but this??? rehash of the same old silhouettes, ugly prints and embroidery, yet another attempt @ the oyster dress.... there's a couple nice looking dresses, but that's about it

A tacky version of Valentino, sad to say but the brand is now irrelevant.

First of all, that move to London was kinda weird. I don't feel like people in London really cares about "established" designers/big brands. I really feel like every brand created before Christopher Kane and that made a success outside of LFW doesn't interest that "young, cool" crowd of London.

Back to the collection itself. I really don't care about Alexander McQueen these days. She is gifted and talented. Tailoring is her thing and she is a great dress maker but she doesn't have the passion expected to do McQueen. McQueen has become really one-dimensional: it is always about the same palette, that same and tired idea of "Drama" without any substances.

McQueen today is a bit like YSL in 2009-2011 when many designers were doing a better interpretation of YSL than Pilati.
I can find what i'm missing here at Giles or Pugh...

It is a disappointment but maybe they needed that whole "spectacle" to sell their body-con Alaia-esque dresses.

I don't understand you guys. To me this girl is finally living her life since this menswear season. New ways of digesting things, and actually let ideas breathe. It's now that this brand is going forward on its road for the first time.

Trashy? I'd say you need to make your appointment with the eye doctor.
