Most looks were featured with a tight, squaretoed ankle boot that gave a jolt of masculinity to dresses; the few heels had silver bands around the ankle that resembled the handbag grips, thick and functional.
She subverted the tropes here, not relying on overt uality hello,Red Sparrow. Instead, her beautiful birds were ready to take flight in the form of beaded coats that resembled feathers and back bows that looked like the spreading of wings. Fringed dresses had blown up patterns of beetles and butterfly wings that gently swooshed down the runway with mottled movement. Dresses with sharp shoulders had soft sleeves, with long fringe hanging past the fingers. It was a stunning sight to behold.
But as there was nothing searing about the collection, it seemed a bit of a mystery as to what one had to do with the other except make editors squeal with delight and take hundreds of snaps for Instagram. Nevertheless, the cozy cocoons seemed ideal protective little places to hide out until spring.
Less nciful looks were buttoned up with an edge, or cinched with a corset belt. Beaded gowns were embroidered with bugs and beetles, and the few y corsets she showed were shiny and hardshelled.
Its clear we are in the middle of a major culture shift as r as feminine power goes. At Alexander McQueen, designer Sarah Burton leaned in to the theme with a collection based on what she called the transformation of femininity.
