Paris: Drawn to the Eastern-influenced motifs found within the Alexander McQueen archive, Sarah Burton sent forth a fierce line-up of kimono-inspired dresses. Tailored looks were precise, rigid and displayed the expert craftsmanship that McQueen is known for. Structured bra-tops and harnesses worn with and over dresses produced a strong warrior vibe. Burton added softer looks for the finale, complete with sumptuous layers of cherry blossoms. –Deirdre Pérez
