Sarah Burton's fall 2012 women were like high fashion super heroes, with sci-fi chrome visors, Batman-like belt buckles to be winged at an enemy or clasped to a zip line, protective capes and fortress-like furs.  I could even imagine some of the closing frocks as like a porcupine's, or some deep sea creature's, defense system -- explode your spikes to deliver the final blow.  Still there was something delicate, beautiful.  That seems to be the sort of McQueen ethos that Burton has carried on so masterfully and effortlessly - the juxtaposition, or perhaps marriage, of fierce strength and exquisite fragility.


  1. WOW I loves these dresses they are Fab!

  2. from the image to the last, I could only think, "who but Burton?"
