Free-spirited, young and carefree, the Alexander McQueen woman replaces the dramatic fall wardrobe with an utterly liberating display of garments for resort 2014. The working women of the 1940s are the inspiration behind Sarah Burton’s organic cruise offering, but alongside the World War II factory girl references, the 1960s flower child had a fair share of influence over the second half of the collection.
The accent fell once again on the waist, as an array of crop tops, belted dresses and cinched cotton jackets combined both the functional and the flattering elements in a series of garment meant to feel and appear effortless. A color palette of faded neutrals, browns and bold blues complements the safari-suit patch pockets, the patchworked denim and the hyper-waisted sillouethes.
The short skirts, the apron dresses and the knife-pleat frocks layered on broderie anglaise, together with the playful crochet floral appliques added a sweet dimension to McQueens resort offering, expanding the horizon for its constantly growing clientele.
