London Fashion Week continues, and Alexander McQueen have brought the brand back to London, birthplace and hometown of their late beloved designer. Meanwhile, Anya Hindmarch is using her unique brand of accessories to explore the concept of computers and dreams.
For the first time in more than a decade, the Alexander McQueen label - now headed by designer Sarah Burton - have moved their womenswear runway display from its usual home in Paris to London Fashion Week.
Sunday evening's showcase opened with a series of tough black leather ensembles adorned with large shimmering butterflies, lip motifs, and stopwatches, as if 'Alice in Wonderland' were playing dress up.
Then came sharply tailored cream and black tuxedo jackets, and black feather skirts layered over flared trousers.
There was a flurry of barely-there lingerie and boudoir-inspired dresses.
And Burton dialed up the decadence for the last section of the show, sending models out in the sheerest evening gowns and capes dripping with sparkly crystals and dazzling embroidery.
Meanwhile, Anya Hindmarch went for a conversation between art and digital design, featuring iconic images from computer history mixed with bold patterns.
This collection examines pixelation and colour, which are considered to be the building blocks of digital design.
Hindmarch founded her business in 1987 and has gone on to become a global success whilst retaining the appeal of a niche brand.
