Alexander McQueen Fall 2020 - Runway Review
March 2, 2020
Sarah Burton looked to a 19th-century Welsh quilt, of all things, for her inspiration for fall. Ten years to make, that article equated to an Alexander McQueen collection that was bountiful in upcycled garments: patchwork suits, A-line skirts and blanket coats all made of vintage wool-flannel scraps. Soft and reassuring, that classic quilt was also drawn into draped leather dresses and trenches. Rendered in plums and crimsons, it was simply lovely -- and powerful. Another Welsh motif were traditional wooden love spoons, their intricate carvings recreated as striking lace that comprised peekaboo hems and romantic separates.
