First look: Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2015

Modern art

With Victoriana and eerie sepia images of 19th century photographer Julia Margaret Cameron inspiring Sarah Burton for Pre-Fall 2015, Alexander McQueen’s new lineup holds demure, opulent and contemporary qualities...

Giving the collection a "portrait-y feel, with links to the men's wear and its military details,"according to the British label's creative director Sarah Burton, silhouttes were similar to those from the Victorian era, but close to the body and rich in textures – ready for the modern-day woman.

Masculine cuts were most evident in the dark green, felt jackets with high necks and military-style embellishments, along with a burgundy leather biker jacket paired with a matching skirt. There was also a variety of other outerwear pieces done in beautiful shapes, which included shearling jackets inspired by riding tailcoats.

In addition, Burton never fails to add a signature Alexander McQueen edge to every collection, as dresses came printed with meadow flowers and hand-pleated bell sleeves, along with wide leather corset-style belts. Standout looks for the evening also included two body-fitting gowns adorned in a bold Victorian-style print.
