Exquisite Detailing: Alexander McQueen Fall/Winter 2013 At Paris Fashion Week

Inspired by Queen Elizabeth I’s wardrobe, the costumes of the Ballets Russes, as well as by ecclesiastic outfits, Sarah Burton created for Alexander McQueen Fall/Winter 2013, a collection which, although composed of only 10 look, perfectly managed to leave the entire audience awe-struck, thanks to the flamboyant splendor that invaded the Parisian salon of the Opéra Comique, where the show was staged.

Coordinated in five pairs of two similar silhouettes, the looks wowed one by one, with the exquisite craftsmanship with which every detail was studied and then created. The first two outfits, with ample skirts, rich lace embroidery, wide metallic belts and Elisabetan collars, were followed by two peplum-waisted silhouettes with cape-like tops and head to toe pearl appliqués. The next two looks, constructed to resemble corsets, and featuring dramatic trains and similarly embellished with cascades of white pearls, were followed by two gowns with ample skirts with royal allure and rich gold embroidery. The show closed on an etherical note, with two outfits with exaggerated volumes, adorned with diaphanous feathers.
