After working for Lee McQueen for 16 years before his tragic death in February of 2010, Sarah Burton would always have a hard act to follow up as Creative Director of British fashion institution, Alexander McQueen. With her second solo collection for the Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 season, it’s safe to say that Sarah Burton has filled the big shoes she so tragically inherited.

Inspired by ‘The Ice Queen and her Court’, the muse of the collection is strong yet beautiful, regal yet romantic – all of which are beautifully translated into the collection. The show at Paris Fashion Week opened with a crisp white tweed skirt suit with fur accents and zip details that opened the pleats around the skirt. Similar styles, with zips, fur and leather bondage detailing aplenty followed in grey and black tweeds.

The romantic collection also featured spray on leather leggings beneath voluminous chiffon skirts; bustier dresses constructed of coloured shattered glass; and high-collared moulded silhouettes over flared or oversized pleated skirts. The footwear was as impressive as the apparel with sky-high fetish lace up boots and stacked platform shoes with jagged metal heels.

So without further ado, we present the Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 Womenswear Collection from Alexander McQueen…Enjoy!
