S/S 2007 Alexander McQueen Runway
This is a glorious Alexander McQueen S/S 2007 Runway piece that was done in limited production and is a rare and fabulous piece! Shown on the runway with one of his signature billowing white cotton blouses you could easily re-create that look or style it a million other ways! The 2007 collection was titled "Sarabrande" and the Alexander McQueen website says of it:
The inspiration is Handelís Sarabande of the title ñ a majestic and elegant dance - the portraits of Goya, the turn of the century exotic and socialite Marchesa Luisa Casati and garden flowers. As always, there is a melancholic undertone: faded flowers are trapped in chiffon and lace, ruffled skirts constructed out of tiers of delicate petals and prints are botanical ñ brightly coloured birds and blooms, scattering swallows and winding stems of leaves. Show pieces include a dress made entirely out of frozen flowers. Tailoring is this time more fluid than it has been and clothing indebted to horsemanship is worn with finely worked, oversized pirate shirts. McQueenís idealisation of the feminine form continues with an exaggerated hour-glass silhouette.
This jumper certainly epitomizes exactly that as it hugs the hips and cinches in the waist. The high line just under the bust emphasizes the breast and indeed does exxagarate the female form. The extensive beadwork on either side intentionally draws the eye to the hips and adds to the bombshell, femme fatale curves. It was called McQueens "most unashamedly romantic show to date" and this particular piece is a triumph of line and cut. Style.com said of the collection:
Looking at it from a broader perspective, it's true to say that this self-referential McQueen collection did not contribute to the new debate about how fashion can move on from its fixation with the past. But as a summation of all he has to offer in the way of refinement, it was one of his best.
