Sarah Burton’s collection is different all over again. Amazons from Troy, Cretan bull leapers, Tropical birds in full display.

And yet … modern, wearable. We are too blase about the amazing work any of the designers do, but Sarah’s Alexander McQueen surely exceeds them all in the exquisite work seen here.

It is beguiling that the whole collection is so understated. Nothing is here for effect.

This is all reinforced by the models chosen. Julia Nobis is the biggest name here. The remainder all up-and-comers.

I regret this choice. I’d love to see this collection with the flash and drama of a Poly, Kershaw, Selezneva, McNeil ….

Julia is made for these beautiful clothes

(It may not be Lee anymore but Sarah Burton’s clothes whilst way more commercial have their own magic and charm)
