Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2015 Collection – Paris Fashion Week

We have already seen the gorgeous McQ by Alexander McQueen spring 2015 rtw collection launched in the framework of London Fashion Week and now we turn our eyes towards the Parisian catwalk to see what the designers of the main line of the luxurious English fashion house have prepared. Awe-inspiring, dramatic, edgy and just so McQueen is the brand-new Alexander McQueen spring/summer 2015 collection, designed by talented Sarah Burton.

In comparison to the collection presented in the English capital, this collection was more mysterious, moody and extravagant. The inspirations behind the label’s creations have always been unusual; its designers have always demonstrated their profound interest in everything mysterious, unidentified and incomprehensible. A perfect proof of these ideas is the new Alexander McQueen spring 2015 collection. It all started with the representation of models. Call them geishas, or warriors, but you have got to admit McQueen models were something. With black taped on kabuki masks, the models predicted the overall mood of the collection even before the first pieces were shown on the catwalk.

The collection was majorly set in dark color tones, particularly in black. In the first few pieces, the color had been combined with light pink to create bell-sleeved, floral-patched mini dresses with Roman collars, puff-sleeved tops matched with shimmery A-line skirts, floral-patched black satin dresses with rather interesting necklines and so on.

Before adding slightly brighter colors to the collection, Sarah Burton created several black and white pieces, which looked extravagant, yet crisp and neat. Black and white Italian collar dresses with slit bell sleeves, black puffy-sleeved dresses with white florals and patent belts around the waists and all-white long dresses with ruffly hems looked just impressive.

Burton also had relied on the powerful combination of black, white and red to add some edge and sophistication to the collection. The pieces mainly featured strappy long dresses, shiny coat-like long dresses with belts, the short version of those worn over matching pants, high waistline midi dresses with chiffon sleeves and wide leg jumpsuits in black, splashed with white and red patterns. Of all-black pieces, particularly noteworthy were netty short dresses with shimmery details around hems and along straps and long belted jackets with matching pants.

However, nothing would compare to the grand finale that Burton had prepared for her spring collection. Here the dresses, which were rather ruffly and layered around the skirts, had more color, but remained mysterious and bizarre.
For footwear, the Alexander McQueen spring/summer 2015 collection offered high platform strappy gladiator sandals, which contributed to the overall mystique atmosphere of the collection.

After witnessing the Alexander McQueen spring/summer 2015 collection parade, we are more than happy to claim that the English brand has got a worthy successor for McQueen in the name of Sarah Burton, a designer who continues to maintain the high profile reputation that the brand has always boasted with!
