Pleasantly surprised. It's fresh, sexy & sleek.

Reminds me of Tiscis Givenchy and also Cavalli when it was good. The last gowns should be burned though.

Can´t help but wonder what Alexander would make if he would be still alive and designing...

That smoking jacket with that pink satin monstrosity coming from inside should be burnt and buried. It´s like a fabric version of "The thing". Like a nature´s aberration! Did she have Chernobyl radiation effects in mind, when she designed that??

And the last gowns...really, it´s like she wants to make the models look overweight on purpose.

I'm divided - I really like this as an independent collection, or a collection for Cavalli/Givenchy, but as an Alexander McQueen collection? I don't think so.

I absolutely love it until the last two looks. They don't fit in and it also makes Eliza K. look like a potato. Typically the McQueen tailoring is on point.

I feel like this collection is very brave for Sarah. Kudos.

It's a bit hit or miss for me, but I like it a lot overall. Some incredible pieces in there. I get the whole moth inspiration as an idea and I think it's working quite consistently, many of the prints are a bit too Cavalli turned teenage goth for my taste though.

It was a BEAUTIFUL collection. Stunning in person, if anyone can find the video you should see it in motion. The pictures don't do it justice.

With that said I couldn't help but feel she's a bit too pedestrian for Mcqueen (wheres the DRAMA). I still want to see Gareth at the helm, he would have been perfect for the job.

It looks like a poor ( not execution, of course, but concept ) copy of Céline...so it looked like Proenza. And opening the show with one of "the" Céline girls, Binx, makes it worse.

That pink dress/jacket is probably the ugliest look of the season.

I don't kknow if i really like this collection. There are some good looks inside, in black, like nr.1 1,nr. 28 and nr.30
The last 2 dresses are bad, the dress in rose pale or pink pale colour is ugly. The model looks like curvy model in this dress.
This monsters- smoking jacket with pink satin and black smoking jacket-coat with burgundy satin to forget.
And so many fringe dresses, why?
Not her best collection, imo.

I love look 10 and look 25.
In order to appreciate a McQueen collection these days, i have to erase the brand and the history behind it because it's almost like a totally different brand now.
It's like those old couture houses that have been revived. They used the name to attract people even if the fashion has nothing to do with it.

McQueen is the same. Sarah Burton is doing Sarah Burton but is using the word McQueen to make her work relevant.

Gareth Pugh is the only designer I can think of that could save this brand nowadays. This is too Givenchy. Too feminine. Too delicate. The McQueen woman was everything but delicate.
