Alexander McQueen RTW Spring/Summer 2012



A (much) deserved praised to Sarah Burton, who - in my opinion - was capable to perfectly revive the spirit of Alexander McQueen in the Spring/Summer collection 2012. Some say she should give a more personal touch to the brand and be less reverential. Personally, I'm too tied to the theatricality of the Maison (which Burton says her creations does not reflect, perhaps out of modesty) and to the absolute perfection of every single dress appeared on the runway. From sheath dresses that sculpt the silhouette and enhance the wasp waist to vaporous baby dolls to gowns, everything was just fabulous, breath-taking:


Un elogio (meritatissimo) a Sarah Burton, che ha saputo - a mio parere - far rivivere alla perfezione lo spirito di Alexander McQueen nella collezione Primavera/Estate 2012. C'è chi dice che dovrebbe dare un'impronta più personale al brand ed essere meno reverenziale. Personalmente, sono troppo legata alla teatralità del brand (che Burton dice invece di non rispecchiare, forse per modestia?) e all'assoluto perfezionismo di ogni abito salito sulla passerella. Dai tubini che scolpiscono la silouette e esaltano il vitino da vespa ai baby dolls vaporosi agli abiti lunghi, tutto era semplicemente favoloso, da togliere il respiro.
