While everyone looks forward to ultra femininity and pastel shades next season, Alexander McQueen pre-SS18 collection offers a tougher approach.

 

Inspired by English country gardens after a spring rain, the pieces have a sense of heritage and romance, but these soft silhouettes are broken down and reconstructed with a modern fresh feel. Not surprising that Jennifer Lawrence chose a look from this collection for the Governors Awards.

 

For every lace trim, organza layer and satin panel there is jacquard, tweed and raw denim. The tailoring is boxy with white contrast stitching and floral panels inserted as though randomly on trench coats and structured A-line dresses. Prince of Wales check feels unquestionably British, but when the straight line cut is styled with a pair of tough shoes or a caged sheer skirt and matching crop top, there is definitely a sense of edge to this English rose.

 

There is plenty of leather in shape of corsets, belts, trousers and masculine black leather lace-up brogues with a pointed toe have elevated crêpe rubber soles and a low mirrored heel. Don’t worry, you can also choose the jewelled stiletto-heeled pumps.

 

Raw romanticism at it’s finest.
