Alexander McQueen Autumn/Winter 2014

Inspiration

A wild, romantic beauty. Beauty And The Beast, Forest undergrowth, flora and nocturnal fauna: roses, ivy, oak trees, moths, owls.

The Collection

A sensual and light approach to construction. The silhouette is free, unconstructed and empire -line. Capes, hoods, puffed and bell sleeves. Tiering, smocking, scalloping, pleating and pom-poms. Frilled and frayed hemlines fall to the ankle or knee. Trousers are narrow, cropped and boyish. Exaggerated collars and hoods are fastened with ribbons and bows through oversized silver eyelets.
