ShowMeYourFresh: Alexander McQueen Resort 2011

With the passing of the great Alexander Mcqueen came the talk of who would be his successor? Who would be able to keep his vision alive and create a collection in sync with the Mcqueen design aesthetic? Sarah Burton has created a Resort collection that sticks close to home, using her mentors previous collections as inspiration. The drama is there, in the brocade coats and dresses with exaggerated skirts. There's something there for die hard fans and newcomers won't be disappointed by either. The dresses are always my favorite in any Mcqueen collection. They are beautifully dramatic, a mix of dark and light, a technique were McQueen was the master. Burton carries on this legacy and I am excited to see what she will do in the future.
