Pretty Spring 2019 Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burton Crisp White Cotton & Red Floral Print Dress
On the Spring 2019 runway two variations of this dress where shown. Look 27 was the nearest to this one but had a contrasting border around the hem and a halter layers over it the bodice. And then a sleeved version was shown for Look 29 whose skirt is like this one. It is always fascinating to see how things are combined woth different elements from the runway presentation to make the actual dresses that go to retail.
This dress is just gorgeous and one of the prettiest dresses I have seen by the label. They have a knack for making these pieces with pretty prints and then adding a twist on the design to still give it that McQueen edge. The cut is simple and flattering. Wide straps curve over each shoulder and extend into the bodice. The neckline is squared off and the top is cut the skim over you. The waist is seamed and you can add a belt to cinch it in even more if you wanted. The skirt falls from under that and it is spectacular. The back is cut longer then the front and you can see how you get a flash of leg from the runway photos. There is a ton of fabric in the skirt and it has been caught up with ribbons placed inside the skirt here and there to help hold the volume and also to shape it into the draping that you see. This gives the skirt a pretty fullness to it and when you walk it catches the air and billows out around you. The fabric is gorgeous. It is a light cotton that has a touch of crispness to it. The entire surface of the dress is screened with a design depicting red flowers and greenery on a crisp white backdrop. It is fabulous. Excellent condition with a minor note below
Lined in a white cotton through the bodice and the skirt is unlined. It closes with a hidden set back zipper. There is a touch of grubbiness to the inner edges of the bodice but it otherwise looks and feels unworn. A pocket on one side of the skirt. Tagged a McQueen 46.
