Sarah Burton's latest offering for Alexander McQueen AW'14 show was a 'Wild Beauty' inspired extravaganza. Plucked right out of a fairytale, the models pranced through a heather-filled landscape illuminated with hazy moonlight. There was less construction and corseting in the pieces, a much softer silhouette than the usual Alexander McQueen affair.  

The models pale-faced complexions mimicked the trapeze, childlike proportions of the clothes. An innocent, ethereal element was key throughout - delicate details, embroidered organza's and virginal smocks in broderie anglaise. 

The fairytale turned dark with witchy, owl-like ensembles. Hand-cut feathered coats to create the illusion of moth's wings were just spectacular. The broderie anglaise knee-high boots with tie-up detailing, and fur accessories finished the looks with a
whimsical feel to it. 

A beyond-dreamy collection. The billowing smock dresses with star embroidery are definitely my favourite. My favourite collection of PFW by far.
