Alexander McQueen presents the new womenswear autumn/winter 2021 shot by Paolo Roversi
It feels like now is a time for healing, for breathing new life, for exploring echoes from the past to enrich our future. More than ever, a sense of humanity, of the team working together with a single aim – to make something beautiful, something meaningful – feels both precious and important. We looked at water, for its healing properties, and at anemones. Anemones are the most ephemeral owers, here made permanent in cloth. The women wearing the anemone dresses almost become like owers, like their embodiment, their character – but ampli ed, grounded, radiant and strong. Sarah Burton, Creative Director.
