Tonight at Alexander McQueen a Victorian gothic spinster awoke from a century and a half of peaceful slumber. Creative Director Sarah Burton took Miss Havisham–that wealthy old woman living amidst the decay of former grandeur–as her muse. Disintegrating opulence informed the faded lace collars and rumpled rose skirts in parchment-fine ruffles. Signs of life stirred here too: black leather, bright red, and bits of black and blush lingerie kept the sentimentalism in check and the collection firmly in the twenty-first century.
