Alexander McQueen's latest exhibition is guaranteed to make you swoon! Exploring the label's love for roses, the 'McQueen Roses' AW'19 collection is the perfect amalgamation of all things lovely and sartorial.
The label's love affair has been evident ever since that red rose dress walked the runway. This love affair can now be experienced by the public at their flagship store in London.
“Everything I do is connected to nature in one way or another,...I used flowers because they die. Nothing is forever. There was a fragility to this collection, in the idea that nothing is permanent, that beauty disappears” Lee Alexander McQueen said in a statement, that is now seen as the basis of their current collection.
Sarah Burton, the house's Creative Director, combined the label's love for the fragile, yet lovely flower and fused it with a contemporary, taffeta silk silhouette to form something so unreal and dreamy.
Further down, the many pieces from Burton’s fall 2019 range, including the tuxedo jacket and the Cate Blanchett dress hang on rails in all their glory, while a video gives an insight into the creation process.
“I liked that the dress was blood red, that’s very McQueen. I imagined this big volume around the face, to halo the face. As we were growing it, it really felt like it had this nod to Queen Elizabeth,” Burton said in an interview.
Well, if only we could be in London right now! A Christmas miracle, maybe?
