Alexander McQueen S/S 2011 by Sarah Burton
I have often thought of this concept of shadow on a garment as a textile design; reflecting how you might have drawn the garment initially indicating shades and applying it to the finished garment, it is sort of a sophisticated/placed tie dye... I think it's a nice effect.
then pic 2- mixing up tailored styles within one look and emphasising a cropped look, and the cargo meets suit pants style, and this burnt dusty red as one of the key colours for the collection which... is in more abundance in pic 3
i am interested in seeing how colours are applied in collections, these are 2 variations of a reddy sort of colour which is i would have not usually would have thought of seeing together in 1 collection, alas it is here!
so many textures in one look, i respect this, the variety of textures is offset, ooorr enhanced by the neutral colours used and metallic accents to 'pop'.
and the overview, always good way to look at the collection at a distance to see the evolution and proportion of colour and spread
