Boudoir on the Runway | Alexander McQueen Fall 2016 Collection

Blog by Catie-Reagan Palmore | News


Boudoir is serving as an inspiration for high-end fashion powerhouses like Alexander McQueen. The Fall 2016 collection has themes of boudoir, featuring lacy bras and sleeves cut off the shoulder. There are surrealist inspirations Sarah Burton drew from through the prints and fine knits which are simply sensational.

McQueen's Fall 2016 runway was an Alice in Wonderland type of dreamy collection that clearly expressed Sarah Burton's creativity and exquisite craft. With intensive print and material research and her hugely well-received pre-collection show a few weeks before, nature was the primary theme of the show as flowers and moon-inspired garments crossed the runway. From black coats to knit and black tulle dresses, McQueen reaffirmed its expertise in tailoring in a modern, feminine, and unconstricting way. An excellent fabric choice and combination (i.e. leather, fur, and lace) together with beautifull hand-painted prints by a specialist floral artist, Sarah Burton elevated Alexander McQueen's ready-to-wear collection to a close haute couture level.

The line feels very dreamlike, especially with the elements of butterflies and pocket watches dancing across the garments. The tailoring is always what I love most about the Alexander McQueen brand. The contrast of the double-lapel suits mixed with modern and feminine touches is breathtaking. I think in order to truly honor McQueen, tailoring is of utmost importance. This was one of his power bases and needs to continue through the next collections to come. I do enjoy the newer feminine takes on these designs and look forward to seeing more femininity in future lines.
