alexander mcqueen spring 2011

Sarah Burton has a lot on her shoulders. It's no easy feat being successor to whom some dubbed a "genius of a generation." No pressure, Sarah, really. But if anyone can keep Alexander McQueen's legacy alive and give it justice, it's his longtime colleague and friend of 14 years.

Fans have high hopes for Sarah to keep the unique aesthetic that was Alexander McQueen forever running. As her first collection solo, she delivered with every bit the gorgeous, theatrical detailing we've come accustomed to.

Will we ever have a true Alexander McQueen replica again? Of course not. But it's bittersweet. The legacy can still live on even with someone else running the show. Somehow marrying his visions with that of another creative director is inspiring and pays a dear tribute to the late designer. Somewhere, Alexander is very proud.
