i don't know how you feel about Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, but for my her aesthetics is too sweet for this house. You always can see in hers designs sweetness, girliness and romanticism. Yes McQueen used romanticism too, but i missed his death, gothic and darkness feeling ...

Love this collection so much. The silhouettes are beautiful, I love the patterns and the general feel of the whole thing is just great; very McQueen. Way to go, Sarah!

Having adored all of Burton's work for the house to date my initial impression of this collection is that she's hit the buffers somewhat. I think she would do well to immerse herself in what is a very rich archive. I'm not exactly sure what's lacking, just an absence of the wow factor that was always present in Lee's work.

My brain kind of hurts to look at all this detail, but it really is an impressive collection.

Need to see the rest. I agree that the label lost the edge with the loss of Lee.

And that Sarah is very romantic and girly and sweet. BUT this collection seems darker and quite an improvemente from the bore we saw on the runway.

More, please!

Every single look: cinched at the waist, flares below.

Honestly, aren't there other silhouettes that Sarah Burton knows of? This collection is redundant and repetitive. McQueen was also guilty of this in his later work, though, so it's unfortunate that the house has not moved beyond this calcified aesthetic choice.

i love it! i wasnt expecting alot about this collection but it did surprise me in a good way! i dont think its repetitive, it has a line and i think sarah is making a good job transforming that, maybe is not magnificent and completly good, but i think it gets better and better!

I get that Sarah Burton is doing a more subdued and feminine version of McQueen's vision while keeping the dramatic and daring aspects. However, the dramatic and daring vision doesn't seem quite as authentic and McQueen's own vision. It feels forced.
