I’ve been a longtime fan of McQ, and now that Alexander McQueen‘s creative director Sarah Burton has taken over the creative reins, the diffusion line has become even more covetable than ever before. Burton’s first collection for McQ is for Fall 2012, but 12 must-have pieces are already available for pre-order exclusively at Net-a-porter starting today – check out the gallery below.
I’m dying to get my hands on the broderie anglaise velvet bell dress and Black Watch plaid coat, but with the two pieces alone ringing up at an astounding $13,315, sadly it will never be. It seems that not only does Burton bring with her the unmistakable Alexander McQueen aesthetic, but also price tags that are significantly heftier than McQ fans have been paying until now.
McQ has now moved out of my snack bracket, unfortunately, and I’m rather devastated. If the price points of $765 to $12,030 don’t faze you though, go ahead and place your pre-order over here so I can live vicariously through you, please and thank you.
