Alexander McQueen Demonstrates a Ruffled Dance for Resort 2017

Cocoon coats and loads of frills appear to be the ultimate trends for these latest resort 2017 collections, as proven by Sarah Burton too. Alexander McQueen’s creative director has just released one of the most detailed, refined and exquisitely embroidered resort collections ever, so now we officially have something more to daydream about for next year.

To make things even better, as well as to prove the fashion house is always on the front line when it comes to terrific artisanal skills and innovation, Sarah Burton decided to treat leather like it was one of the other main fabrics, hand-painting each flower the line-up features. The care for each shade, line, petal and miniature is apparent as well as jaw-dropping, and it’s here to impress even those who don’t particularly fancy the fashion house or leather per se.

“We thought we’d treat leather in a different way, as if it were fabric,” Burton told Vogue, adding that such a choice was made possible also thanks to the label’s factory in Italy. “The technology and machinery at our factory in Italy has advanced so much. What they can do now is so fine it looks like lace.”

Then, to take the awesomeness to a whole new level, Burton managed to combine two completely different patterns in single looks. British folk art and domestic interior and gipsy motifs never looked so chic together, proving contrast is always a good choice when it comes to fashion.

A sense of nomadic wanderlust wafts as soon as we approach the Alexander McQueen resort 2017 collection’s ruffles, frilled hems and dramatic gowns, while the line-up’s multi-colored color palette and its flower power cherish and revitalize what the British artistic interiors are mainly renowned for.

With all that geometry and fluid fabrics, the collection manages also to appear structured and pompous, as well as fresh and modern at the same time, with more classic patterns lightening up the whole floral gipsy theme. Sequined and sleek materials add a glam-rock meets haute couture touch to the entire collection.

Probably not regarded as purely wearable for every occasion (unless ‘dress to impress’ is your mantra), the Alexander McQueen resort 2017 collection is super artistic and conceptual, as proven by one of its most astounding and elaborate key pieces. A Sixties-inspired long-sleeved tunic short dress is overwhelmed with lavish, yet incredibly delicate cascades of colorful gems, exquisitely beaded in an abstract, geometric way. It is not your average day-to-day frock for sure, but it offers one of the most appealing and glamorous proposals we have seen so far.

As for the accessory line, it is in the shoe range that Burton dared the most. Designing them while keeping in mind a similar innovative creative process, the shoe line is also filled with frills and different colors, which somehow manage to balance and soften the proposals with their slightly Goth-chic approach.

If this trans-seasonal line is this innovative, good chances are the new seasonal collection is about to take us by storm.
