Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen

After the complete shock of having the gorgeous Kate Middleton, now the Duchess of my home town Cambridge, wearing a stunning Sarah Burton dress, of the fashion house of Alexander McQueen, I thought it suitable to post a selection of images I saved on my computer ages ago from the McQueen website. I was so surprised yesterday because I had a post ready for ages and was just waiting to find the right moment to publish it. I feel like one moment in Alexander McQueen's showcase of runway exhibitions was just as unbelievably memorable to the general public as the fact that his name was associated to the wedding of this century. And to start this post off, here is it, from the Spring/Summer of 1999...

Although Alexander McQueen is sadly not with us any longer, his legacy continues through the work of designers such as Sarah Burton at his fashion house. Here are my favourite pieces from the Spring/Summer 2011 Collection.

1. Embroided Fin Mini-Dress - £3540.00 - Here.    2. Engineered 3D Koi Jacquard Knit Dress - £895.00 - Here.
3. Tan Folk Medium Tote - £950.00 - Here.    4. Flesh/Ivory Lace Knuckle Box Clutch - £1285.00 - Here.
    5. Red Samurai Skull and Ribbon Silk Scarf - £380.00 - Here.    6. Alexander McQueen Exclusive Multi-Skull Scarf - £290.00 - Here.    7. Military Fern Jacquard Knit Dress - £840.00 - Here.    8. Black Jersey Embroidered Top - £495.00 - Here.    9. Tan 3D Flower Wedge - £625.00 - Here.    10. Ivory Double Buckle Western Belt - £495.00 - Here.     11. Wide Leather Obi Belt - £395.00 - Here.     12. Obi Wallet - £345.00 - Here.

Love your choices of McQueen


Hannah said...

Thanks for coming over to check out my blog. I didn't think it was surprising because I always thought Sarah Burton would end up designing the dress so when we found out officially that she was the designer it wasn't so much of a shock, especially since she'd been seen going into the Goring hotel the night before the wedding

Unknown said...

Alexander McQueen will always be missed - I still ask myself why such a thing could have happened. Such a tragedy really.
The dress was beautiful, yes :)

I was just admiring his 3-d knuckle duster clutch (so fun!) That fashion house will continue to produce great stuff and yes loved Kate's gown!
