The Lord of the Rings

10 Mar

Alexander McQueen AW1415

The hair and the makeup of the Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burton Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 Show, respectively conceived by Guido Palau and Pat McGrath, were partly influenced by J. R. R. Tolkien’s « The Lord of the Rings ».

Another « The Lord of the Rings »-inspired collection : Clements Ribeiro Autumn/Winter 2002-2003.

Furthermore, in December 2003, « British Vogue » wrote that Liv Tyler had been dressed by the late Alexander McQueen for 3 premieres of « The Lord of the Rings » film series.

      Everything was perfect in this dark, mysterious and wild show ! No wonder that it featured tracks from Björk’s “Homogenic” album (a beautiful homage to Alexander “Lee” McQueen, who had styled its cover) !

        Love the album and what a great cover it has. A great choice to play tracks from it in this show which seems to be nature-like with a fantasy-vibe. just like Björk herself.
        A beautiful outfit in this photo. Sometimes you just need to have ruffles! 😀

      You’re very welcome ! I had wanted to do a post about this magical collection since I’ve seen the show on TV, last Wednesday, but hadn’t read about a particular inspiration until, thank the Lord, yesterday(on the Lord’s Day) !

    Thanks for that. Love Bjork and have all her albums but didn’t know about McQueen designing the cover. He would love this collection. Sarah does him proud!

      Thanks for reading my post and my comments ! The way that Sarah Burton respects Alexander McQueen’s legacy is tremendous ! I almost had tears in my eyes when I watched this magnificent show and heard Björk’s “Bachelorette” and “All is Full of Love” … I still miss Alexander McQueen a lot … XX

    So much detail in this gorgeous dress … it looks as if it is made of tinny wild forrest flowers. With her frilly purple gown, edgy boots, braided hair and earthy makeup, she can definitely pass for one of the Lord of the Rings woodland creatures. XOXO N & N

      In this poetic comment, you have gorgeously captured why this was, according to me, the best show of the Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 fashion weeks ! The whole presentation screamed “awesomely perfect” ! XOXO

      Thanks ! I can totally agree : this was beautiful, dramatic and gorgeous ! And yes, show after show, Sarah Burton has never betrayed Alexander McQueen’s uniquely different fashion vision !

    This Collection made me think so much…unlike what is generally presented in the fashion world this wasn’t so much about feminine beauty but fiercely strong determined women. I liked that xxx

      Thank you for sharing your clever opinion on this magnificent show ! As soon as I saw this purple dress on the runway, I fell in love with not only its beauty but the strength that it exuded ! This was definitely my favourite collection for Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 !!! xxxxx
