“Romantic Utility” was what Sarah Burton dubbed the look she was going for in Alexander McQueen’s Resort 2012 collection. Things have naturally changed a bit since Burton took over as Creative Director for the line after McQueen’s tragic death, the etching of her own name in the fashion landscape solidified after we took one glance at her design for Katherine Middleton’s royal wedding dress. One noticeable modification is the newfound sense of immediacy Burton has brought to the line via more accessible fabric such as, gasp! Cotton. In her own words, Burton explains, “Cotton makes it more real”. Cheers to Burton for keeping it real.
