Close up Alexander McQueen at Paris Fashion Week Spring 2016

SARAH BURTON has long been credited as the light source at McQueen. In previous seasons it’s been subtle, like a crack in a window but bit by bit that window has widened. Tonight, it was thrown wide open.

Her Alexander McQueen takes a gentler, more feminine approach and that was no truer than in her collection this evening: no gimp masks, no crazy hair styling, no set to distract. What she presented was a beautiful, much easier rendering of the McQueen aesthetic.

This was an ultra-romantic version of the McQueen woman, best illustrated with the closing look: a shredded ruffled shell pink gown suspended by the skimpiest of spaghetti straps, and decorated in tiny covered buttons snaking around the torso and hips. Sublime and a sure contender for red carpets the world over.
