The Other Royal Drop: Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2013 Campaign
A day where a royal fetus could become a royal baby is no time for displaying composure, and we’re going to use the occasion to get equally riled up over another regal drop: Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2013 campaign.
The monochromically opulent images feature It Brit Edie Campbell as photographed by David Sims. There are only four looks in the eight images, but that makes it only one less than was showed in Paris back in March. Sarah Burton designed the collection while about to give birth in a much less hyped way herself, canceling her runway show in favor of a private presentation.
The clothes themselves are exactly what the royals might wear if they all suddenly decided to convert to Roman Catholicism. Hyper-worked embellishment, soutache embroidery, triple bulleting and giant hooped skirts are the height of ecclesiastical overblown-ness, and are all the more impressive rendered in black and white. We love Kate Middleton’s timeless elegance, but if she put on one of these once she’s finally out of her PJs we could die happy people.
