Communion, Nuns, Cardinals, Popes and McQueen Angels...

 Look 1 of 10: Alexander McQueen/Winter 2013/2014

The Look: Catholic Priests in Drag. Creative Director/Designer Sarah Burton designed this collection during her last stages of her pregnancy so therefore it's briefness (only ten looks)--and maybe it's focus on "Divine Inspiration". The mini collection was all about excess and Catholic priests of the 16th Century. Elizabethan Costume Details such as Ruffs, puffy sleeves mixed with  "Conquistador" uniforms and armor. Modern touches included studded rocker-chic boots, silver metallic corset belts, finger covers and crystal-encrusted headdresses. Oh, and then there was a little Folies Bergere thrown in at the end...

 Ruff Diva: Queen Elizabeth I

 Religious Excess: Jan Van Eyck "Madonna and Child with Canon Van Der Pa"

This was just an "Inspiration" for what editors and buyers would then really see back in the showroom: Probably fiercely simple yet rigorously fab black sheath dresses. Visit an Alexander McQueen boutique come this Fall and let me know if you see ANY of this in stores. Here's a hint: you won't. But it was fabulous to see it here, n'est pas?


Here are the the other nine looks from Alexander McQueen Fall/Winter 2013/2014:
