Victoriana Dreams {Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2012}

19/01/2012 § Leave a comment

I’m not entirely sure what to do with myself. 

My oh my, Sarah Burton’s 2012 pre-fall collection for Alexander McQueen is of the stuff my sartorial dreams are made of.  Elaborate, dramatic and a bit Victorian at times, I especially love the nipped-in waists and full skirts.  While definitely a bit too extravagant for application to my day-to-day wardrobe — hello, can we discuss that ethereal gown with the tulip sleeves? can. we. dis. cuss? —  the inspiration here abounds.  And truly, that’s all I ask from the House of Lee McQueen…
