i have been waiting with bated breath for this collection. yes, me and the rest of the world. Sarah Burton had some massive shoes to fill, and even though she has been the assistant for the late great Lee McQueen for the last 14 years, to become the head of a world renowned house is intimidating to say the least. she has been quoted saying that she represents a softer side to the label, and her spring summer is inspired by pagan women and rebirth. we will still have to see in seasons to come how Sarah’s own voice will grow and mature, as this collection references many past seasons as well as touches of Marchesa and Viktor and Rolf. however, as a start, she’s made a good one, and i am excited to see more.
