London Fashion Week: McQ

A huge mile stone was reached last night at London Fashion Week for the house of McQueen, as the second fashion line from McQueen,  McQ, made it onto the runway for the very first time.
Sarah Burtons creations for Autumn/Winter 2012 is very sombre and took on a military theme. Crisp autumn leaves were scatted along the runway as the models proceeded from a black brick wall with Halo like structured hair.
Nipped in waists, full skirts, floral prints, khaki panelled coats wrapped around fur pieces, dressed with calf length leather boots and structured blazers – yes, this collection certainly took stand.
As I was watching the show last night, I loved the build up of colour throughout the collection. Dark, basic blacks, khaki and grey tones,  followed by a dramatic burst of green then red, giving the collection a much softer and feminine appeal. McQueens 2008 Fall collection had a very similar basis –  Its nice to see Sarah Burton keeping things familiar.
