Sarah Burton revisits the north in search of inspiration for Alexander McQueen‘s FW19 collection. Razor sharp tailoring infuses with soft and feminine layers, while voluminous taffeta made up sculptural dresses and sleeves. Ingenious craftsmanship came through buttons and hook and eye closures and the clever symmetrical selvedge-hemmed tailored jacket. Boots were edgy and studded with spikes yet still ultra wearable and sporty. A triumphantly confident collection for powerful warrior women who work the urban jungle dressed in various McQueen uniforms of battle, empowerment and ultimately weapons of mass seduction.
