Alexander McQueen Spring 2011 Shoes

Alexander McQueen Spring 2011

Sarah Burton worked with Alexander McQueen for 15 years and the shoes in this collection not only display Sarah’s amazing talent but also her connection with the late designer. This season I’ve noticed many different forms and interpretations of Baroque, from Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte, Prada and now McQueen. The detail in this shoe collection is meticulous and the hand carved Monarch butterfly heel is magical!

The Monarch heels are absolutely stunning & I started looking into what the Monarch butterfly symbolizes. I found that it varies within each culture. The Chinese believe that the butterfly is good luck and in Greek mythology the butterfly links to the human soul. In Mexico there is a town where the Monarch butterflies migrate through each year and they celebrate the Day of the Dead where the butterflies symbolize the returning souls of the deceased.

    Actually the butterfly is also a symobl for rebirth. Which I didnt even think of until I said it now but rebirth=McQueen gone/Sarah Burton? Maybe Im thinking too much in to this.
