Alexander McQueen

Sarah Burton produced another fantasy collection for Alexander McQueen’s spring 2012 runway show. The creative director and McQueen protégé released pieces covered in voluminous ruffles of cascading chiffon and lace, some cinched with corset belts to create an ultra-slim waistline. Cream, gold, lavender, silvery gray, and coral made up the palette, and lace, sheer panels, and underwire details added a lingerie touch. Towering curved wedges with straps snaking up the leg glided down the runway in gold and white. And that’s not all—see our favorite looks from the collection in the gallery.
