Burch Does Baroque

The designer described as the modern day Lily Pulitzer in Harpers Bazaar’s September 2013 edition, Tory Burch, tries something other than a zesty feminine print for her Fall 2014 collection: Baroque. With Russian and German doll like inspired lace and silhouettes, the collection demonstrates this delicacy and beauty, which I have admired over the years. Especially with those Russian Matryoshka dolls in mind.

We Enter a Tribal Galaxy at Alexander McQueen Spring 2014

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As Alexander McQueen‘s show begins, you immediately enter into another Galaxy. You then land in another world. Ready for an expedition. But you refuse and instead, decide to pose on this new World. In fear that your Alexander McQueen gown would get ruined. But as you stare out into the Scenery, you notice your back on planet Earth, in your seat at the Alexander McQueen Spring 2014 show, and that the show has ended.

“Tribal Couture,” is how Net-A-Porter described Sarah Burton‘s Tribal inspired collection. In many tribal inspired prints, cutouts, and the Styles and the Silhouettes remind me of Herve Leger by Max Azria‘s Warrior Girl inspired Fall 2012 collection. While the much sculpture and unique fabric textures, make me think Haute Couture.

“Do you believe in UFO’s?” Sarah Burton described to Harpers Bazaar magazine in their March 2013 issue, as the first question Alexander McQueen, himself asked her during her interview for an internship with the brand. As described in Bazaar, “Burton, a polymath with a deep love of the arts, music, and science, hit that question about imagination and faith on the nose with a resounding ‘yes!'”

So how did we get to this Tribal Galaxy during Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2014 collection? Simply on a UFO.
