Alexander McQueen Spring Summer 2013 Show

Alexander McQueen Spring / Summer 2013 Show

Signature tailored jackets are layered over jewelled, moulded resin bustier tops and sheer, mid-calf length honeycomb pencil skirts, or cropped panelled trousers.  A play between covering the body and discreetly exposing it is seen throughout as the transparent is juxtaposed with the opaque and garments peel away from necklines and shoulders.  Lightness is paramount: intricately woven jacquards, lacquered lace and laser cut patent leather hover over silk organza.  Cages, corsets and crinolines in various incarnations are worn as underpinnings or as finished, elaborately embellished pieces in their own right.  Every aspect of the foundation garment and the transformation of the body that is a hallmark of the house of Alexander McQueen is explored.
