My all-time favourite designer is Alexander McQueen, so that probably hints that I love the dramatic, especially forms and clothes that empower women. I am glad that Sarah Burton is doing a great job of continuing McQueen’s legacy, carrying forth his vision and spirit in designing.

Alexander McQueen’s main line has always been a magical theatre, where models play the characters that McQueen created. The stories are whimsical and provocative, always told in a poetic yet intensive manner.

His McQ diffusion line however, even with his spirit of the dramatic, is watered down to more wearable pieces that look youthful and energetic.

Here’s his line sheet from his pre Spring/Summer 2012 collection to illustrate what I mean.

Monotones with pops of fluorescent colours that remind me of the 90s disco era. Love the prints.

Accessories that truly pop!

The Autumn Winter 2012 show for McQ is nothing short of dramatic.

Here are some pieces that I love.

Everything looks velvety rich and luxurious. It looks more like a haute couture collection than a diffusion line.  Beautiful nonetheless.
