Sarah Burton and co. is really killing the detail game in the Alexander McQueen Resort 2017 collection. Using cutting edge techniques and fabrications, they’ve created some garments that you really want to just get up in there and stick your face in. You literally can’t zoom in far enough on these images to see all that lovely detail. Everything is kind of tricky. Like what looks like a satin brocade is actually hand-painted leather. And that beautiful lace dress? That’s a knit. I’m also loving the dress that looks like a vintage jewelry display at a garage sale.

Another thing I like about this collection is while there are some “ethnic” influences, I don’t believe that there is any cultural appropriation going on. The chinoserie patterns are more reminiscent of old Chinese-inspired wallpaper than the real deal. In the same way, the knit ruffled dresses look like a high-fashion reinterpretation of an imitation of traditional Spanish-influenced garments.

What I love most about the Alexander McQueen Resort 2017 collection is the embroidery. Two of the dresses are white and black interpretations of the same symmetrical embroidered pattern on mesh and it is gorrrrrrrrrrgeous. I’ll take the white one to be married in and the black on to be buried in, please.
