Alexander McQueen, Resort 2011.

If anyone was going to take over from the late Alexander McQueen, there was know one more suited for the job than his right hand (wo)man Sarah Burton. Showcasing her first for the label - the first without McQueen- Burton managed to keep the essence of Lee's vision throughout the collection, despite the blatant lack of his deep rooted edge that only he could construe. Everything was lighter this time around, it all seemed to have been lifted, but still Burton managed to bring that drama that is tied to McQueen's work. The dark romance was sustained through beautiful brocade, the deepest of silks and the most intricate lace. 
Whilst the tragedy of McQueen no longer being with us is still raw to the fashion world, its nice to see how his  (for the lack of a better word) 'legacy' has been protect so well by the woman who quite clearly respected his work the most.
