Alexander McQueen spring/summer 2016 collection – Paris fashion week

0

British fashion house Alexander McQueen presented their new spring/summer 2016 collection at Paris fashion week spring 2016. Creative director Sarah Burton found inspiration for this collection in the 17th-century silk weavers of Spitalfields, members of the Huguenot Protestant faith who fled religious persecution in France and settled in London’s East End. She stated:“I loved the stories of how they arrived with very little, bringing seeds and bulbs in their pockets to grow. They were gardeners. And they wove their French flowers into the patterns on their silks.” 

The focus was on poetic and moving dresses with lots of patchwork, cascading ruffles, velvet-silk yarns, woven fabrics and floral embroideries. She emphasized the play between the Divine darkness and the blinding Light. This is truly one of the best spring 2016 collection we have seen in Paris so far.
