Nature in the atlantic seems to be the inspiration behind Sarah Burtons Fall McQueen collection with the organic pod and mille feuille dresses, creating impressive volume in cherry blossom hues developing into berry reds in tactile furs and feathers. A Stunning collection full of details of silk thread tassels and fur pompom embellishment and laser-cut ponyskin on a palette of cool cosmetic pales with a punch of lipstick red and black.
A breathtaking collection as always Sarah certainly is living up to McQueens standards yet adding her personal flare of femininity.
Viktor and Rolf showed a darkly enchanting collection of all-in-one silk jumpsuits which had a pyjama dressing vibe in relaxed shapes with slight peplum detail and a scratched print creating the impression of fur. I expecially enjoyed the sheer maxigowns embellished with stripes of fur creating animal markings, while ruffles and silk tassels decorated hemlines. On a Pallet of Earthy browns, blacks, golds and luxurious navys.
