Alexander McQueen SS15

The stunning new SS15 collection by Alexander McQueen caught my eye straight away with the bold colours, elegant, feminine but still edgy designs and the Japanese inspired styles. The red, black and white colours on the pieces - both dresses and accessories, gives the whole collection a sexy vibe whilst still having that ‘innocent’ feel with the flower prints. Normally I wouldn’t call a collection both pretty and sexy in the same sentence, but in this case I had to make an exception.

My favourite pieces from this collection include the Japanese inspired kimono dresses which are so elegant and chic. Both the Satin Kimono sleeve long dress and the mini dress are stunning and guaranteed to turn heads at any evening event.

The footwear in this collection is designed so cleverly with flowers and peep-toes being paired together, which makes it so different from the rest. Even the lighter pastel colours of the collection have managed to retain that boldness but still be classic and timeless. The Lotus Flower peep-toe bootie in pink and white is a great example of this.

The whole SS15 collection has a sense of strong femininity and for me it’s all about opposites coming together. For example, flower print dresses would usually be thought of as pretty and sweet. Instead, the collection takes that ‘prettiness’ and makes it sexy, strong and powerful. The sexy satin materials are paired with flower graphics – two things that would usually be polar opposites when it comes to fashion.
