Spring/Summer 2011 campaigns! McQueen

Alexander McQueen's former assistant and current head of design, Sarah Burton seems to be doing an excellent job at honouring his memory, if you don't believe me see for yourself in the Spring/Summer ad campaign.

Taking inspiration from a hat designed by Philip Treacy in honour of McQueen's close friend and eccentric fashion icon Isabella Blow following her own tragic suicide in 2007, the ad features top model Lindsey Wixson surrounded by butterflies.

Burton also clearly referenced this inspiration in the latest Alexander McQueen collection. It's so great to see her managing to simultaneously keep Lee's spirit alive and keep the brand innovative and forward-thinking.
