Maximum Impact

by Kaylee Pare

The Alexander McQueen Fall/Winter 2012 finale certainly didn’t lack drama. With billowing layers of rose, black and fuschia organza overwhelming each model, the show exhibited a theatrical, feminine twist on modernity. Designer Sarah Burton describes the collection as, “a kind of soft futurism. Not cold and structured, but optimistic and forward-looking.” In an industry where the future is so often summed up by high-tech nuances, extreme sculptures and harsh silhouettes, it’s refreshing to see a designer forage for an optimistic execution. Mirrored eye shields, slick hair and overbearing shapes surely denote futurism, but add to that, feathery textures and echos of floral petals and you’re left with a new definition for progressive fashion …and, lest we forget, a whole collection of options for the likes of Anna Della Russo, Daphne Guinness and Gaga.
