It was said that Christopher Kane was meant to be taking this role, I was preparing myself for structure, panels, neutrals with an edgy print feel.
I love Alexander he's is one of my favourite designers, I think my shock is that I don't want him to share his talent with anyone else! He has such a fresh and young vibe I don't think he should be labelling himself to any brand yet!
I have a feeling there's going to be a Burberry-esq turn around. Meaning (in a nutshell) when Burberry where really loosing sales, became a less popular brand etc etc, they brought it in some young and famous faces (Emma Watson) to model. Since then they've become a really popular brand again, and the famous Burberry print has again been one people lust after.
My point is I think Alexander is so fantastic there's nothing he can't do, I think he's really going to turn the brand around and I can't wait to see their newest collection.
