Thank you, Sarah Burton.
All the Places You Can Wear Alexander Mcqueen To Thank you, Sarah Burton.

Sarah Burton is expected to pop any time now. But before she left for maternity leave, she delivered the most romantic, most delicate, masterfully crafted, and surprisingly very wearable collection for Alexander McQueen that we’ve laid eyes on.

It was like a scene ripped from William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night's Dream as cobweb knitted dresses, hand-painted leather corsets, and embellished gossamer gowns made their way down the runway. It’s typical to expect drama from a McQueen collection, whose core is deeply rooted in avant-garde, but there was something about those double lapel dinner jackets and jacquarded coats that was very much relatable to the working woman. Here we enumerate some of our favorite looks and pieces from the show, narrating where and how you (or anyone at that) can wear them out in the city.
