Like its predecessors, the Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2012 collection has a decisively Gothic undertone that speaks of the Victorian era. Nevertheless, this time around there are more contemporary silhouettes thrown into the mix. Unlike the more casual and relaxed McQ Pre-Fall 2012 collection, however, this couture line is classically feminine.
With a focus on full a-line skirts, the Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2012 collection accentuates womanly curves thanks to the addition of bold black belts. The rich palette of dark purples and greens gives the line a theatrical air that is often associated with the fashion label.
The crowning jewel of the Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2012 collection, however, has to be the floor-length gowns with romantic, sheer fabric that billows out from the arms.
