The fashions we see on the runway, especially in Paris, are for and inspired by women. For Alexander McQueen’s spring 2019 show, creative director Sarah Burton reminded everyone that both the brand and its namesake founder built a strong foundation that celebrates women’s complexities. In true-to-form Victorian-style, the collection contained all the beloved favorites of the British fashion house: sharp tailoring, romantic garments, and nods to traditional dressing of previous centuries. These indelible signatures were heavily interspersed with various masculine undertones, particularly the black leatherware and footwear. In this combination of extremes, the house took a stereotypical Chanel-like turn in re-emphasizing the importance and strength  of femininity in a masculine world—an idea women of today need now more than ever.
