Paris Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2013: Alexander McQueen

Filed under: Catwalk

Who better to bring history to the catwalk than the one and only Sarah Burton? Paris Fashion Week might be drawing to a close, but the Alexander McQueen Autumn/Winter 2013 show was worth waiting for.

The beauty of this collection was all in the detail. Peplum bodices and floor-sweeping capes were studded all-over, while pearl embellished headgear, gloves and heeled brogues added a sense of majesty to the shortened dome skirts and corsets.

There was a focus on texture too - lace was layered and collars were ruffled high around the neck. A not-so-subtle reminder that these regal clothes were made for a queen.
