It appears that we're just getting an endless supply of beautiful pre-fall collections! A few more that were released have caught my eye and I'd like to share a few looks with you.
The McQueen signature has always been inspired by anglican religious medieval styles, and designer Sarah Burton wanted to evoke purity and humility through this pre fall collection.
Hence the velvet textures, parish priest silhouettes, plain white cotton dresses, or nun's wimple look-alike dresses.
Even thought rigorous purity is shown here, we can seem to highlight a slight aristocratic demoniac essence with red and black dresses with huge sweepings of velvet.
Those clothes look like they have a monumental quality -long, lean, minimal and architectural- but classic. They may have been extravagant, but they lack ornaments, as if 2013 was a chilly thus minimaly-vulgarised version of religion. Are times evolving to simplicity by coming back to the roots?
