When designing the Alexander McQueen SS14 collection, Sarah Burton states, "I didn't want it to feel too referenced to a period or a theme." Known for her love of all things Victorian, that may come as a surprise to some. Yet that doesn't mean this line is lacking in any way. Instead, it is more of an amalgamation of periods and cultures. From the armlets of Amazons to the kilt-over-trouser combo of the Celtic warrior and the graphic geometries of Mondrian, the Alexander McQueen SS14 collection is a mishmash of all things that make a woman powerful and regal.

There may be a sporty feel to the Alexander McQueen SS14 collection, yet overall the red, black and white looks are edgily elegant.
