Sarah Burton truly deserves to be the scion of Lee's label, Alexander Mcqueen. We don't find faces of regret with Burton at hand. Alexander Mcqueen 2012 Spring collection was inspired by goddesses Gaia, couturier Madam Grès and architect A. Gaudi.
There opened chambers of consciousness from the impaled intricacy of the clothes; the jacquards in barnacle patterns, silk chiffons, pleated organza's, bat-like appliques in nude dresses. These were all reduced to one identity. Burton's pragmatic tendency delves in the sheer survival of the mood which sparked the collection. The color palette shaped the human interest of the audience into the nature of the label. The models walked the runway seemingly primordial beings on Earth.
It can be no accident, that Burton used lighter tones that Mcqueen have ignored in one way or another. Burton, like Mcqueen, is a genius. Her marginality establishes conceptual truths. We fall into a chasm of mirrored pool of realism where we cannot escape, even if we wanted to. That's how powerful Burton's poetic and strong collection is defined by the discernment of the impossible.
