Alexander McQueen AW21: pure flower power

If Sarah Burton’s last Alexander McQueen collection looked at the bleak nakedness of London in the midst of a global pandemic – when streets were empty and a pollution-less nature was gently restoring itself – this season, it is Burton who is healing. Or, in her words, making ​“something beautiful, something meaningful.”

Alexander McQueen | 'Anemones' AW21 Collection

On June 8th, Alexander McQueen debuted their Autumn/Winter 2021 Collection, Anemones, accompanied with a special campaign shot by photographer Paolo Roversi. “It feels like now is a time for healing, for breathing new life, for exploring echoes from the past to enrich our future. More than ever, a sense of humanity, of the team working together with a single aim – to make something beautiful, something meaningful—feels both precious and important. We looked at water, for its healing properties, and at anemones. Anemones are the most ephemeral flowers, here made permanent in cloth. The women wearing the anemone dresses almost become like flowers, like their embodiment, their character—but amplified, grounded, radiant and strong.” said Sarah Burton, Creative Director.

This ‘Cruella’ combines ’70s London punk and Alexander McQueen in bold fashion

To create a believable backstory for Cruella, the gaunt, screeching villain from Disney’s 1961 animated classic “One Hundred and One Dalmatians,” director Craig Gillespie also needed a believable setting. Gillespie’s new live-action origin story, “Cruella,” plants a young version of the character, called Estella, in 1970s London where she’s an aspiring fashion designer. Although it’s not specified, the director sees the story, based on a screenplay by Tony McNamara and Dana Fox, unfolding in 1978 — the heart of the punk era.

Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall ’21 Is All About Bold Block Colors And Bolder Silhouettes

For Pre-Fall ’21, Sarah Burton looked beyond the natural references that she usually turns to, and knuckled down on what’s becoming the Alexander McQueen brand’s bread and butter. In other words: the juxtaposition of pretty-meets-tough, a pared-back palette of solid colors that don’t compromise on impact, and tailoring so sharp it demands that the world adjust to proper dress codes once more.
