Just as expected, designer Sarah Burton is continuing Alexander McQueen’s extraordinary work by maintaining the edgy-elegant sophistication that made the McQueen label unique, however the designer put her own touch into the creations, emphasizing femininity like never before. The designs which exude femininity still maintain that dramatic allure that we’ve gotten used to seeing at Lee Alexander McQueen’s fashion presentations. Alexander McQueen’s fall 2012 lookbook is dominated by variety as far as design goes, featuring contemporary pieces as well as Victorian-inspired designs that attract attention like a magnet.
The accent falls on variety this year as playing with different styles can help accentuate one’s fashion-forward personality and fresh style. Each of the designs has a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ which keeps the attention focused, so if you wish to make heads turn this upcoming season, dare to experiment with the following designs featured in Alexander McQueen’s fall 2012 lookbook.
The brand’s lookbook features garments that are much softer and have a more wearable vibe, featuring fashion items that range from business-chic to evening attire and occasionally a few more relaxed, rock-chic inspired designs stir-up the vibe of the collection, keeping the interest high.
Apparently, coats are an art at Alexander McQueen as each and every design featured in the lookbook exudes a high dose of elegance and reveals the craftsmanship that the brand is renowned for. An array of designs will dare you to resist them such as nipped-waisted coats and gorgeous ‘Snow-white’-like capes featuring various monochrome colorations. If you’re all about evening attire, the dresses featured in the lookbook will enchant your eyes, so feast your eyes on floor-length classic dresses, vintage-inspired dresses as well as more contemporary designs which underline a woman’s wonderful silhouette.
Balancing the collection, the leather pants, stylish suits and pant/pullover ensembles look amazing and give a more relaxed look to the collection. The dramatic touch of the collection is not only given through the cuts but also through the accessories used to complete the collection, so take Alexander McQueen’s approach to fashion into account when you’re thinking of revamping your wardrobe as the designs will surely have an impact on your style!
