Designer Sarah Burton combines religiously inspired pieces with looks from the sixties and seventies in the Alexander McQueen pre-fall 2013 collection.
This impressive and luxurious collection takes inspiration from the very unlikely source of religious garb and reworks it to make a very opulent and exaggerated line as the long coat styles dictate. The designer takes retro looks and makes it high fashion, as can be seen on the flared bell bottom pants, billowing shirts and extremely long and very short dress styles. These garments are made out of lavish red, black and whites. Brocade fabrics, white fur and eyelet detailing can also be seen throughout, which really gives it that extra touch of elegance.
The Alexander McQueen's pre-fall 2013 collection, which evokes a combination of elegance and vintage, demonstrates that Sarah Burton is the ideal candidate to head the coveted fashion house.
