McQ Fall 2012

Credit: Style.com

Sarah Burton reconciles McQ affordability with Alexander McQueen sense of grandeur for McQ’s first ever runway show. McQ imparts many of the elements associated with the Alexander McQueen aesthetic, imbuing a dark sense of glamour and romance to the Fall 2012 collection. I love the idea of being able to find beautiful clothes at any price point, and Burton’s autumnal vision certainly reinforces that idea. In fact, this presentation felt a bit magical as it opened with a fanciful bed of autumn leaves–something hard to come by in the middle of spring. The silhouette is dramatically sculpted from luxurious lamb wool and decadent velvet. Masterful tailoring is on display in the gorgeous military styled outerwear, whereas evening gowns entrance with their Edwardian charm.  Sarah Burton gets us ready for autumn while Kristen McMenamy leads us on a whimsical journey through crinkling leaves for a show stopping finale.
