Alexander McQueen Fall 2011 "Ice Queen and her Court"

Titled "The Ice Queen and her court”, McQueen's Creative Director Sarah Burton presented a couture collection. Burton's play between "hard" and "soft" was done mostly in black and white.  The stunning details were boutiful and included a skirt and top made from mosaic of broken bone plates fired together, fur lined hems, pleats formed with metal zippers that partially zip open, and a gown woven from strips of silk.  Burton's collection also included harnesses and leather made for bondage-like, tough-luxe pieces that served to counterbalance the more feminine look, notably the white gowns that closed out the show.
