Alexander McQueen Resort 2019 Lookbook

20 11

Fashion house Alexander McQueen’s creative director Sarah Burton has long proven herself as a brilliant designer and the best of all possible successors to McQueen’s style and philosophy.



In her new resort collection, Burton again reflects on power and femininity through the prism of the Victorian era, this time taking the story of Mary Anning as her inspiration, the famous English paleontologist, who made her first major discovery of ichthyosaurus fossils in the South West of England in the Lyme Bay area when she was 12.

Time references are found in silhouettes, corset elements, multilayered flounces and ruffles, embroidery, intricate lace, but also in mother-of-pearl embellishments.
