Alexander McQueen Spring 2011 may not be directly handbag related (only one purse was presented during this show, a Skull Clutch covered with weathered gold leaves), but the brand’s first post-McQueen collection is certainly of note. Sarah Burton, McQueen’s new creative director, did an extraordinary job of putting a new spin on the company’s legacy, despite having what Style.com called the most “thankless task in fashion.” Make sure you watch all the way through to see the show’s truly dazzling finale dresses. For close-ups of the shoes, check out or sister site TalkShoes tomorrow morning!

    Burton did a great job of keeping the McQueen aesthetic alive and I doubt we’ll have to worry about the future of the label.

    i didn’t think the details would be THAT amazing but i loved it afar.

    you know this collection is done to the hilt–it looks amazing from afar but upclose the details a-mazing. she has done him a great honor by keeping it with a mcqueen vibe. its not the same without him but its not ruined either

    The Collection is amazing. I just wish more of the models could walk in the shoes gracefully

    Wow. Beautiful. I would die to wear that black leafy dress (and have the figure to wear it well). Love this collection! And the shoes – heaven!

    OMG. I loved the 5th from the last dress… the white/black/grey…. I thought the fabric floated effortlessly in the air… just as delicate as a jellyfish in water. Lovely, just looovely. And the 2nd to the last dress? Fit for an Aztec queen!! Beautiful!
