Alexander McQueen Resort 2013
It’s been a long time since designers put much thought into tailoring a great pantsuit for a woman, but Sarah Burton—herself a trouser person—has been turning her attention to it for resort. After three seasons of crafting spectacular dresses almost exclusively, she’s plainly feeling more like taking on the menswear-derived side of Alexander McQueen’s legacy.
“I thought it would be nice to go back to the body. To be sleeker, more sexy,” she said. “We had been doing a lot of peplums, but we took them away to make the torso fitted and wanted to visually elongate the legs as much as possible.”
