Factory Girl Meets Flower Child At Alexander McQueen Resort 2014

Fashion has long had a love affair with the Factory Girl, but Sarah Burton’s muse is a long way from the drug-fueled debauchery of 1960s New York City.

For Resort 2014, the designer was inspired by World War II factory uniforms and the evolution of 1960s flower children. Whether it’s all the bling we’ve been encountering or our obsession with boy dressing we’re not quite sure, but this utilitarian take on a season that’s hedonistic by nature is calling to us loud and clear.

We’re particularly into the giant military pockets turning skirts into workers belts and dresses into aprons. Vacations are no time for fussy clutches that can hardly hold your sunglasses, and if we can’t have these we’re ditching bags altogether.

But it’s not all work and no play. From the rigors of factory life is born a generation of high-fashion hippies dripping embellishment sans #blingring factor. They’re also causing us to reconsider our stance on cropped flares.
