My top pieces from Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burton, Pre-Fall 2013

This whole collection gave me a ‘sexy pilgrim’ vibe, but in the best of ways. I love the over-the-knee leather boots (which remind me of a more conservative version of the pirate boots in McQueen’s posthumous Fall 2010 collection), structured lace dresses, and sweeping floor-length gowns. I do wish Burton would mix some other colors into her collections, as she tends to use a lot of black, white, and red, but her pieces are undeniably beautiful. I love the powerful yet femme vibe of the structured clothes, and there are few designers who could make cloaks and reserved necklines so sexy.
