Sarah Burton took over the creative helm at Alexander McQueen in 2010. Since then the designer has propelled the rebellious British brand to new heights, adding a softer, more feminine edge to its typically subversive collections. Gothic, romantic and with an air of other worldly etherealness, each piece is made with same considered construction as couture, making it a sure-fire sartorial investment. Peplum hems, accentuated shoulders and luxurious leather make the label’s jackets a faultless addition to every wardrobe. On the front row, the style-set can’t get enough of pair-with-everything bikers and satin bombers. While at events, parties and dinners, a tailored blazer is all you need to instantly smarten-up any look.
