References to Art Deco and the work of Gustav Klimt ran throughout the spectacular Alexander McQueen collection for resort. Creative director Sarah Burton played with contrasts, juxtaposing ultrafeminine dresses with sharp power suits. She worked a large round silver or gold buckle as the leitmotif, putting the focus squarely on the waist for many of the looks.
Several pieces were embellished with opulent dragonfly prints — a gold-and-black version for a fluid halter evening gown, and a Japanese floral motif for a great suit. Another standout suit, this one done in iridescent silver with an intricate cutaway blazer with wide lapels, was inspired by Bianca Jagger’s signature white numbers. ( WWD)
