Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2016

Time for a look at some fashion, and we kick off with a selection of Alexander McQueen's Pre-Fall 2016 collection. Like the full Autumn/Winter collection (to be featured in a later post), butterflies feature heavily. The Sakae lace gown above features three dimensional lace butterflies. The heavily embroidered work on sheer panels in other pieces from this collection is absolutely beautiful. I like the combination of butterflies with other surreal objects and motifs which are very illustrative and like tattoos. The detailing is amazing, and both this, and the full Fall collection are perhaps the strongest of any of the AW collections presented this season.
