Alexander McQueen’s latest collection is a masterful display of ultramodern adornment. Using metallic accents, the designs are a powerful look back into the great empires of the world through the scope of high fashion. The designs although unconventional, do incorporate the esprit of earlier decades in a celebratory manner. Intricate beading and feathered accents add multidimensional layers turning each style into an individual mixed-media canvas.

Venturing away from pastels and airy textiles, the Spring 2014 collection includes a myriad of textures and fabrics colors that contrast bold reds along with black and white fusions. Tribal patterns also lend a certain earthly feel to the otherwise bold and futuristic designs. Eye-catching geometric and cubed shaped patterns are hypnotic and provide a 3-dimensional look. The collection does include several solid white, red, and black styles that are exceptionally primed for the red carpet.

The Spring 2014 Women’s Collection contains an array of trendsetting styles that range from elegant gowns to cutting-edge ready-to-wear fashions. Alexander McQueen has graced the season’s runway with sporty leggings, cropped tops, long gowns, kilt-inspired skirts, retro flapper-inspired dresses and linear suit jackets. The collection captures the essence of avant-garde fashion with angular cut-outs and exaggerated lines. In a visually striking display of past meets present and future, Alexander McQueen delivers unprecedented elegance and distinction with the latest designs.
