This week, Sarah Burton, under the Alexander McQueen brand, revealed a successful second collection at the famous Parisian prison La Conciergerie.
The “snow queen and her court” inspired collection was abundant in wool suits, zipper embellished pleats, corset detailing, mosaic-like dresses, ruffs (collars) made popular in the mid-sixteenth century, and black harnesses.
Models walked the runway accessorized in corseted lace-up boots and a multitude of metal hair barrettes made to look like helmets.
Will she? Only time will tell.
Until then, enjoy Burton’s fit-for-royalty Alexander McQueen collection for F/W 2011.
