Alexander McQueen’s Heavenly Embellished Heels

Before the fall 2013 Alexander McQueen show, Sarah Burton made it clear that this season’s collection would include fewer pieces, as she is currently pregnant with twins[1]. And limited it was, with a runway show that included only 10 ecclesiastic-inspired looks. Those 10 outfits, however, were anything but subtle, with so many intricately embellished moments per silhouette that Burton spent two weeks on each individual piece[2]. Those ornamental details, like silver hardware and delicate pearls, were also featured on the sublime heels shown at McQueen, footwear that may seem excessive to some and like a gift from the fall shoe gods to others. For the coming season, we’re putting Burton’s Elizabethan pumps into the latter category with a resounding hallelujah.
