The first half was cool, but the second was an atrocity...

None of those pieces look particularly flattering on the body...

I just don't get this AT ALL. She's stuck in a rut with the silhouettes. McQueen isn't always about the spectacle. Think SS06, SS08 or AW05. Just a runway with great clothes. She needs to scale it down cause her Resort and Pre-Fall collection are now way better. So disappointed.

For a woman designing for women, Burton sure does like to suppress the female body

Seeing this collection in thumbnails makes it truly obvious that she has literally designed 10 looks in different variations.

well I'm glad she's trying something different than the past couple of seasons, it's only a shame it came out like this. I can't tell if she's trying to recreate Lee's image of McQueen or gradually changing the brand to her own type of style. Perhaps she hasn't figured out exactly what that is...

Oh no no no. never liked her for the brand. Her work is so try hard and comes too much from the head, It has no soul. McQueen is about instinct and risk and atmosphere and drama she's just not that kind of person/designer. I know there can't be another Lee but please send her home and try someone new. And yes she's trying kind of something new and it's worse than ever

Yes, the difference between those two white dresses is literally just the neckline, not even colour, shoes, leggings, accessories are any different.
In fact I agree with most of the comments on this page.
I think if she started designing and showing normal clothes for women to wear at Paris fashion week she wouldn't match up to McQueen's standards or ingenuity of cut or design, and so she continues this sort of headline-grabbing stuff.. which is nothing new anyway.
McQueen was a genius at drape, which is something she never does - he used to sit in front of a mannequin for hours draping fabric on the stand, all of this is flat and repetitive and, the bottom line is, completely unwearable save for a few little jackets.
Didn't she learn anything from his way of designing while being his right-hand-woman for all those years?
