Sarah Burton has created a Wild & Magical Celtic Collection for the Spring Summer 2017 for McQUEEN ( KERING GROUP) all inspired and made by local artisans with goosamer fine shetlands lace, and sweet poetic themes as indigenous flora and fauna–wild heather, clover, poppies and roses; sea birds and underwater creatures both real and mythical–is re-imagined.
The colorful interiors of solitary, deserted houses, faded over time and glimpsed through windows, fishing huts, sea walls, shipwrecks, lost treasure, Celtic paisley and the stoles and shawls sported by Scottish nobility are also referenced. Hand-sewn, patched Taatit rugs, traditionally given as wedding gifts, form the backbone of the story.
Congratulations to Sarah Burton, Emmanuel Gintzburger and all the McQueen Teams for this very inspiring story telling collection.
