A McQ Summer 2012

Summer isn't always about pretty florals and floaty sundresses. At least not according to the vision Sarah Burton has for McQ by Alexander McQueen. The contemporary label brings forth high end designs at a more affordable price, with clothes that retain that unique McQueen edge, but without the theatrics. 

For Spring/Summer 2012, the McQ collection takes a ride on the Texan side, with a few Western inspired looks set in red, black and white, with all the elements of a high fashion rodeo. Floral embroidered shirts, ribbon-tied collars, tailored blazers, cropped cigarette pants and dashes of two-tone denim. A more feminine appeal comes in form of ruffled and A-line skirts, bound by wide leather belts.

The range then dips into animal print pastels in soft pink and powder blue, laid upon pencil skirts, peplums, button-up shirts and bodycon tops. Metallics make an appearance in burnished red palliates, lustrous silver cocktail wear and and flaired out pewter skirts. A vintage twist on trends, this McQ collection will take you from a country music festival, to the office, onto a weekend away, and to a glitzy party and back again.

I really like the Western vibe, especially since the re-boot of Dallas is coming on this week and I cannot wait to see JR and Bobby again! My favorite is the red long pants suit... I would rock that in a nanosecond!
I also love the pastel animal prints but not too into the burnished metallics.

Happy Monday my friend!

I just just just ADORE the retro silhouettes of the clothes mixed with that fabulous southwest vibe. It's so edgy but feminine and some of those pieces would just be wonderful to wear!
