Alexander McQueen RTW Fall 2016 Shoes

The mood: Marking a triumphant return back to London, Sarah Burton presented her latest collection at Lawrence Hall this season. A sheer black sheet divided the space and provided a backdrop to the dreamy assortment of ruffled dresses and sequinned gowns, which were surprisingly feminine and less severe than the usual aesthetic.

The shoes: Like the ready-to-wear, the footwear collection offered a softer message this season. Ankle-strap sandals had various fur linings, some in vibrant colored hues. Sandals also had sewn-in ostrich feathers that elegantly moved as models walked. Being a McQueen show, there was a bit of punk too: Pointed creepers were embellished with various pins and jewelry, which was also used artfully on the clothes and in the hair.

The review: Burton plays to her strengths when designing a collection that’s rooted in the details. Here, the craftsmanship and thoughtful accessories to go with it worked. It worked quite well. A refreshing switch-up from the typical McQueen hard-edge shoes.
