Alexander McQueen's Spring/Summer 2018 Was A Floral Garden Come to Life

Showcasing imaginative, hand-crafted textiles.

Alexander McQueen‘s Spring/Summer 2018 Collection was a beautiful floral garden that came to life on the runway.

Designer Sarah Burton drew from “the healing power of nature,” and made use of floral elements like peonies and poppies. The show had beautiful pergolas and canopies draped in floral embroidery, going hand-in-hand with the collection itself. Extravagant designs reminiscent of aristocratic ballgowns in sheer organza made their way down the runway, as well as contrasting pieces like patterned suits and harsh leather dresses.

Not only were the clothes in focus, but also the shoes. Flat boots in multiple colorways, equipped with studs or floral embellishments, served as contrasts to the innocent, feminine looks and created an element of cohesion throughout the collection.

Peep the gallery above to check out the looks from the show.
