Late Just recently, a piece from the Womenswear Autumn/Winter 2021 collection by Alexander McQueen was released publicly, and its price tag is an astounding $6,490. The shape of the anemone, a kind of sea creature, served as the basis for the garment’s design, mirrored in a good number of the other items in the collection. It would seem that Alexander McQueen’s Anemones collection is an effort to bring awareness to the precarious situation that marine life finds itself in due to global warming.
The intense colour, which has a bleeding effect, is caused by the anemones’ dramatic bleaching due to climate change-induced rises in water temperature. In comparison, the $6,490 check has a deep scarlet colour to it. This dress from the collection, which has an Anemone Print and dropped shoulders, gives the impression of blood splatter. The dress is now available for purchase at various online sites, including Alexander McQueen’s and theyes.com, among others. The sizes available are IT 38 (US 2-4), IT 40 (US 6-8), and IT 42 (US 10-12). (US Sizes 8-10). (US Size 8). It would seem that Alexander McQueen is the only place where the dress may be purchased and delivered to the United States of America.
How did the fashion company come up with the unusual designs?
On the Alexander McQueen website, the creative director of the collection, Sarah Burton, mentioned the healing properties of water and anemones in her commentary. Even though anemones are one of the most ephemeral types of flowers, the beauty of these blooms is preserved in this fabric representation for all time. She stated: “The women in the anemone dress essentially become like flowers, like their embodiment, like their character; yet, they are heightened, grounded, bright, and forceful.”
Opinions on Alexander McQueen’s Anemone Dress, Which Costs $6,490
The gowns with the anemone design could seem unique and communicate the collection’s message meaningfully, but the internet didn’t seem to agree with that assessment. On Twitter and Instagram, the anemone design was first mistaken by the brand’s followers as a blood splatter pattern. This misunderstanding occurred because of the design’s initial appearance. Quite a few of the dress’s admirers brought out the dress’s price tag of $6,490 as well as the accidental slavery overtones that it may have.
A number of the comments suggested that the model’s race may be obscuring the message that the garment was trying to convey. The lady wearing the clothing was rudely likened to an enslaved person who had been hurt in the comments. The pattern of anemones appears in several of Alexander McQueen’s other dresses that will be included in his 2018 fall/winter collection. It is a fair probability that they won’t be misinterpreted to the same extent as the $6,490 dress with sagging shoulders. The flowery bleed pattern is conjured up by the blue and yellow tones of some anemone-inspired dresses in a manner similar to how the red and pink tones do so.
