The Alexander McQueen 2014 Resort Collection takes a page from the classic female safari outfit, with dramatic waistlines, military fatigue designs, and a gypsy-like flair. The collection is interesting with a wearable factor, which appeals to many women. The safari-like design has a number of options to include a shorts outfit and a skirt outfit, while the belted waistline and large rectangular pockets give the look a layered illusion. The style also varies with a smoother look, which features smaller pockets as well, while one of the more delicate looks of the collection is a white frock with a layered, folded-skirt. The belted look has a longer slip that has an embroidered hem, which peeps out from the bottom of the frock – the look is beautifully casual, light, and completed by low-heel, wrap around sandals.
One of the unique looks in the collection is the blue “patched” look. The outfit top has the safari jacket style seen throughout the collection, and is made of blue, square patches. Matched with flooding patched pants, as well as brown, low heel, wrap around sandals, the outfit has a unique ‘stop and stare’ quality to it. The evening gowns of the collection, embroidered with a mixture of lace, texture and color, have a halter-top midriff option, or a daring, wide, rectangular keyhole option. One of the most striking pieces of the collection is the gypsy-styled gown with a beautiful garden print. The exquisite detail of the gown, enhanced with off the shoulder long sleeves, is a beautiful re-creation of an old, classic look. Whether you are an Alexander McQueen fan or not, finding an outfit to love in the Alexander McQueen 2014 Resort Collection is not a hard feat.
