The McQueen shoes …

McQueen’s new creative director, Sarah Burton carved out her vision for the fashion house, whilst staying true to the essence of Alexander McQueen.In a collection that referenced nature with fantastical feathered dresses, magnificent butterfly motifs and a use of raffia, Burton continued her vision right through the collection and into the shoes. There were thin ankle strap heels alongside surreal, gilded baroque like wedges in the form of coral and sea anemone. The butterfly motif was further strengthened with realistic butterfly like detail on straps.McQueen’s iconic love of feathers was seen in T-bar heels with either intricate gilded gold feathers or pheasant feathered shoe uppers. Burton’s use of corn stalks in prints and gilt detail in the collection was continued into the footwear in open toe ankle strapped platforms. The raffia ankle straps were embellished with hanging stalks of faux corn. Apart from the nature inspired heels, there were the matador inspired boot-shoe in a multitude of shoe uppers and cut variation. Some featured a square metal toe and ornate trio of buckles, whilst on others there were laced details offset with open toe and cut-outs.
