Alexander McQueen doesn’t care if florals for spring aren’t groundbreaking. For the 2019 season, the British label is giving them to you in major doses regardless. Rock ‘n’ roll met couture at its Paris Fashion Week show today, where creative director Sarah Burton presented a bouquet of booties as the fashion house’s key footwear message.
Alongside the stilettos with their embroidered flowers were more gritty versions of the silhouette. Studs and leather, including patent, made up key details on other boots, with each iteration meticulously styled alongside a perfectly coordinated garment. Even the floral shoe options were exact design replicas of their apparel counterparts, whether it be paired with a leather fit-and-flare dress or zippered two-piece set.
The brand’s knack for buckles was to expected, while it also revisited metal cap-toes, a consistent detail spotted on each and every shoe. Should the colorful blooms seen too girly, let the toughness of the hardware serve as a sharp counterpoint.
Cutouts, like the apparel, were also woven among all of the boots. And while pin-sharp heels overwhelmingly made up the bulk of the assortment, Burton didn’t forget to offer a flat option for more range.
