Except for the final four puffy flower monstrosities, I really like the rest. It's nice, well tailored, and extremely detailed.

McQueen's looks on runway always just for showing. They actually create another wearable-collection which losing some over-the-top designs in the same theme/inspiration for sell. It's been doing like this for every season and you can check back in their official website.

For this collection, it's exciting to see the close-up and detail.
Love McQueen as always.

Not so keen on the second half. Overall it is a good collection though.

It's dark and very sexy, very dramatic. There is also a touch of Eastern influence in the opening looks. I don't love this. I adore it. Favorite Paris collection yet...

PS. I am going to pretend the last 4 dresses never ever happened.
Ditto.

I actually really love this. And i really like those last two dresses, the 3rd from last is hideous though. I really respect Sarah Burton for keeping up with the Mcqueen aesthetic. Its nothing compared to his work, but you still know its Mcqueen just by looking at the collection.
Atleast Burton didnt destory the house, ala Valentino style.

Absolutely love the first half with the more structured tailored looks. That's undeniably McQueen. Really clever use of the beehive pattern which morphes into a snakeskin like pattern on some of the looks especially looks 2 and 3 in post #3. Quintessential McQueen from the first half

Two things a lil' off: the heel less shoe. They are great, but enough is enough. And the two bags on the runway just seem a little out of place. Beautiful, but out of place...

PREAAAAAACH.

I haven't seen a collection so embarrassing in a long time. This is an all time low. As if I expected anything else from Sarah Burton.

Ugh, I can't even. After a stunning resort collection, very clean, elegant AND wearable, they present this. All I see is gimmicks... I know it might look great in magazines but I really don't care.
