Alexander McQueen Pre AW13 RTW

A little Borgias, a little Tudors.


THE TUDORS - Season 3

Designers have been pulling inspiration from the Vatican (or history for that matter) for years.

Catholic Cardinals’ robes and designs that fit a nunnery make their way onto the runway frequently.

There’s a great article from FORBES talking about last year’s AW2012 (it was heavily influenced by nuns).


It seems the clergy is inspiring once again.

The fabric for this collection seems simple but possesses a regal presence.

The buckles on the boots make us yell, “Ahoy, me scurvy lass.”

Be sure to pay attention to the laser-cut detailing.

(See our Radiolarian article for more laser cut designs from Giles.)

We admit, we have a few capes hanging in our closet and we wouldn’t mind adding a few more.
