A Tribal Theme is the Center of the Alexander McQueen Spring 2014 RTW Collection 08


When you think of the Alexander McQueen Spring 2014 RTW Collection, Warrior Princess Xena is not too far from your mindset. While the theme of the collection was clear to all onlookers, you will not be able to pin it down to a certain time in history. Sarah Burton states, “I didn’t want it to feel too referenced to a period or a theme.” The look lent itself to Amazon warriors, African warriors, and even Scottish warriors. “I didn’t want to do ‘big’ gowns,” said Burton. “I wanted energy without froth.” The collection is most certainly a departure from former, more wearable McQueen collections. One could say that the collection arrived just in time for Halloween, or more appropriately, you could ask where the Lady Gaga concert is.


In some instances, the collection could rightfully land in a boxing ring and blend right into its surroundings with a flamboyant take on boxing attire. However, the collection takes a tribal princess-like turn with glorious feathered attire that is indescribably marvelous. The splendid details of the designs, flawless with perfection, laid not a single feather out of place and nor did a design turn out the wrong way. The valiant effort put into the designs of the collection show amazing attention to detail and meticulous planning. At times, the designs can be quite dizzying, but nonetheless delightful to the eye. The terrific collection called the Alexander McQueen Spring 2014 RTW Collection, has more than lived up to McQueen’s legacy, and would certainly make him proud.
