Amid the sophisticated and traditionally tailored silhouettes at the Alexander McQueen presentation for Spring/Summer 2019 was an array of paint-splattered fashion ensembles. From brushstrokes on leather to colorful blobs on trench coats, designer Sarah Burton drew inspiration from iconic British artist Sir Francis Bacon and photographer John Deakin.

The paint-splattered fashion itself gives the Spring/Summer 2019 collection a playful flair that celebrates and mixes the exquisite stylings of clothing with traditional notions of artistry.

For the rest of the upcoming season's offering, Sarah Burton focused on well-tailored and colorful silhouettes that communicate strong notions of sophistication and refinement. As a result, the paint-splattered fashion definitely stands out in terms of expressiveness but ties in perfectly well with the overall chromatic tones of the Alexander McQueen runway.
