McQueen Spring/Summer 2011...

This is Sarah Burton's first McQueen collection as head designer since losing Alexander Lee McQueen in February. Shown in Paris this evening, the Spring/Summer 2011 collection is, to me, insanely beautiful! The aesthetic is completely consistent with the brand Lee McQueen built - with beautiful prints, overtly feminine silhouettes and absolutely original.

Here are some of my favourite comments on twitter about the show:

@HilaryAlexander Sensational collection by sarah burton for alexander mcqueen! Raffia, leather, feathers,tailcoats, poppy prints. Awesome.Legacy lives on

@styledotcom Sarah Burton proved herself a very worthy successor to Alexander McQueen at her runway debut tonight. #pfw NP

@SHOWstudio Stunning McQueen collection. Nature inspired. That may round cliche but it absolutely was not. Pheasant feathers and golden wheatsheafs.

@LorraineELLE Accomplished and beautiful. McQueen #pfw. Sarah Burton:one of our most talented and original designers. The butterflies were extraordinary.

@LorraineELLE Michael Jackson's 'I'll be there' played at the finale of Mcqueen #pfw haunting and moving.

@IamMademoiselle Sitting at McQueen, haunting cello music, very dark show space, wooden catwalk with grass growing up through it. General air of anticipation

@IamMademoiselle Sarah Burton at McQueen; from darkness came light. So wonderfully executed. A celebration of new beginnings, moving on without forgetting.
