Sarah Burton presented her Spring/Summer 2022 collection for Alexander McQueen with an impressive rooftop show, overlooking the London skyline.
This was the first physical show from the designer since the beginning of the pandemic and by taking guests to a rooftop location, Burton wanted guests to embrace the natural surroundings that we have all come to appreciate over the last 18 months.
Inspired by the ever-changing weather conditions and the way we have no control over nature, Burton presented a collection of voluminous dresses, bold silhouettes and flowing materials, with a cool, rock chick edge.
Specific elements of the collection took inspiration from the elements: sparkling embroidery on dresses resembled raindrops, billowing materials looked as though they were caught in the wind, white fabrics reflected the clouds in the sky and yellow tulle was a glimmer of sunlight.
The romantic elements were juxtaposed with more masculine pieces – boxy suits, biker boots, buckled leather jackets – all classic McQueen pieces that will never go wrong.
