Resort 2012: Alexander McQueen

This is going to be the first collection that i review cause i just saw the collection right before i'm writing this post. I will do my other favorites later (Lanvin, Jason Wu, Chloe, Valentino). First off, Bravo for Sarah Burton for taking the role as the Creative Director brilliantly. She delivered her first collection for McQueen in S/S 2011 Collection, which I think was fabulous. Then she designed the wedding gown for Kate Middleton which was amazing. I've always loved McQueen, and it's a tragic death really, may He rest in peace. Let's hope Burton will continue to give us more amazing collections.

For resort 2012, the color palette has a different shades with F/W 2012, where McQueen used a lot of grey-white-ish like an Ice Queen. For Resort collection, Burton uses black, white, gold, tan (i'm not a fashion/textile student so I can't differ/tell what color that is), a really cool earth tone. She also stays true to McQueen's style where there are a lot of embroidery of flowers, shells, pretty and strong silhouette, and structured cut. The difference between McQueen and Burton is that Burton gave us a more of feminine touch to the collection. The thing about McQueen collection is that it's very unwearable even for White Tie events. I think the only place where you can wore McQueen gowns is like the Costume Met Gala, but not this time. This time, Burton gives us a very wearable collection with lots of jackets, skirts with ruffled hem, simple dress wih amazing details with embroidery belt, and gowns with such 'aaaaaa i want this' feeling. Pretty much, I love how this collection really embodied my 'style' at the moment, very polished, chic, simple but there are colors and embroidery. And oh, can you see the shoes? THEY ARE AMAZING. Very simple (very different from the usual over the top but also pretty McQueen shoes) and wearable. Ah, I should stop rambling, and you should see what i mean. Here are my favorite looks from the collection (make sure you read more!):
