Alexander McQueen Resort 2016-Sarah Burton's Anti-Revolution?

Danielle Greene

Sarah Burton's Alexander McQueen 2016 Resort Collection is a distinct departure from the infamously macabre energy of the House for over 15 years. According to Burton about the collection, "It's the very opposite of last season's darkness, and all about growth, freshness, springtime - and optimism." Indeed, Sarah Burton's patterns included sweet peas, lily of the valley, begonia, and hollyhock. 

The delicate, vintage dresses were my favorite because they exuded a romantic history full of hidden gardens and lost loves. Yet, the infamous McQueen edge was not completely abandoned, as leather jackets were paired with heirloom frocks, and the shoes (flat oxfords) were practical blended with a fifties aesthetic. 

To me, this Collection felt like a bold move for the McQueen house. While still loyal to haute craft, it had a much softer, soothing energy. Indeed, according to Vogue on the collection: "Now we're in the age of empathy, where fashion needs to be a salve to the soul." Perhaps, this collection is also a salve to the soul of the House of Alexander McQueen, a quiet (impermanent) pause from the beloved revolutionary spirit that will (hopefully) remain at the core of the House.
