Sarah Burton shared her affinity for the natural world with Alexander McQueen, an evident starting point for this collection. Her concept of “butterflies and bugs, and paradise found rather than lost” reflected itself in tailcoats and leather bodices that seemed caught in the process of peeling away, like cocoons, butterfly wing patterns on dresses and exotic insect embroideries.

In a way, you could say that the collection is a metamorphosis of Burton as a designer, breaking out of the conceptual restrictions of McQueen and saying things as she sees them.
