Alexander McQueen x Damien Hirst

The main reference for this post was Damien Hirst's kaleidoscopic artworks.

Sarah Burton for SS11 created a collection based on the power of nature. As Tim Blanks said "The woman in her show began as a plain white canvas and was steadily reclaimed by nature: wrapped in embroidered fronds, in leaves of black leather, in a raffia-trimmed brocade, in the wings of monarch butterflies or an enveloping mass of feathers."

So building on both, the models on the post are placed like they're parts of a kaleidoscope. The themes merge and Hirst's swarm of butterflies join those of McQueen.
