Alexander McQueen presents its new in a London "cloud"

London-ALSHARQIYA October 13: Alexander McQueen's house returned to present its live shows after the pandemic, through its first women's fashion show in London after an absence from this city for 20 years, evoking a "cloud" to act as a stage for this show.
Sarah Burton, the house's creative director, chose to present her Spring-Summer 2022 collection off the London Fashion Week calendar. She decided to return to her London roots through a presentation on the roof of one of the city's buildings, where a transparent bubble was installed in the form of a cloud designed by Chilean architect Smiljan Radek, who made sure that the London sky, which was the source of inspiration for the show, was shown through it.
Inspired by the changes in the London sky, Sarah Burton set of 36 looks that varied in colors between white, grey, navy, black, light leaf, yellow and pink. They are all gradations that decorate the London sky with the change of weather and the succession of the hours of night and day.
This collection included many women's suits that carried the special touches of Alexander McQueen. She kept her classic cuts and was decorated with huge sleeves and embroideries. It was also remarkable that the black leather matched with denim in many looks, and the feathers entered the dresses made of chiffon, in addition to coordinating the looks decorated with bytes with feathers. As for the crystal chains, we have seen them invade blazer jackets, corset dresses, and even socks and shoes. The drawing of clouds, executed with great precision, was repeated on the costumes.
"I love the idea of ​​a McQueen woman being strong in character and unaffected by the passing clouds and storms of her life," Sarah Burton said in the notes accompanying the show. It was perfectly embodied by veteran model Naomi Campbell, who concluded the show with a striking black look.
