simply McQueen

Another inspiration for me are the collections of Alexander McQueen which differ a lot from the Dior or DSQUARED² collections I have showed you before which are more playful and romantic in their details.

The pre-fall collection is inspired by an ultra modern interpretation of regimental dressing which takes decorative elements from British and French Court and creates simple and strong shapes with a hint of luxury. My favourites are the two dresses below which emphasize the femininity of the wearer through the strictness of shape and material.

The resort collection 2012 is more romantic, but not less graceful. It consists of tailored pants, high-necked blouses and mid-length skirts in softer earthy colours which shows women's shapes in the most flattering way. 
One detail in both collections are the broad waist belts which create a beautiful and slim silhouette.
