Alexander 'Ice'Queen

As the title suggests, Ice Queen is in the mind of Sarah Burton when she designed this collection. In the hand of Sarah Burton, the brand gains a sense of serenity, but still maintains McQueen's dramatic aesthetic. The palette is mainly black, grey and white. Most of the pieces have fur trims and zipper details, and some looks have bondage over structured jackets and flowing dress. There was no handbags presented, so we'll just focus on shoes. Lace-up boots and fabulous heelless wedges with metal detail are shown. We'll soon see Daphne Guinness and Lady Gaga walking around in them. My favourites are two dresses with china sew on the bodice and wedges. There are rumours that Sarah Burton will be designing the wedding gown of Catherine Middleton. If it's true, she'll be the most fashion-forward bride in the history.
