Alexander McQueen Resort 11

The Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burton Resort 2011 Collection drew inspiration from Hans Bellmer’s sinister doll drawings.

Other Hans Bellmer-influenced collections : Acne Studios by Jonny Johansson Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 (this show was partly based on how artists such as Hans Bellmer looked at the body), Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 1997 (this show, titled « La Poupée / The Doll », as an homage to Hans Bellmer’s 1935-1936 eponymous work, was dedicated to the German-French surrealist artist), Warren Noronha Spring/Summer 2002 (this show was inspired by Hans Bellmer’s papier-mâché doll art).

    There is something avian about it.

      Indeed, thank you ! There’s a light majesty in this sumptuous silhouette which calls to mind the most exquisite flying creatures !

        Something about the fabric, either the print or how it hangs reminds me of feathers.

        Your comment is very interesting because feathers are definitely part of Alexander McQueen’s DNA (his S/S 2008 Show, « La Dame Bleue », featured Bird of Paradise-inspired prints) !

      Merci pour ce joli refrain qui rend justice à cette merveilleuse robe ! Après avoir visionné ta très pertinente vidéo “Astérix : le domaine des dieux-Laura des films”, en aucun cas je ne pinaillerai : j’ai hâte de voir tes nouvelles aventures filmées ! ❤

        Coucou Laura,
        A cause de gros soucis Internet, je suis obligée d’arrêter mon blog. Merci pour ton soutien et bonne continuation sur WordPress et YouTube ! ❤
