She Builds Domes In Air x McQueen SS12 x Kristen McMenamy

A stunning 16mm film by acclaimed artist Catherine Sullivan, starring Kristen McMenamy, hauntingly stalks the world behind the Alexander McQueen SS12 collection - the third by much celebrated designer Sarah Burton.

'She Builds Domes In Air' is shot in black and white, with McMenamy's alien-like beauty further enhancing the collection's chillingly delicate and beautiful aesthetic - with the model's platinum hair encased in lace hoods, as she wonders in a ghostly fashion through an abandoned atrium and forest, while birds sing, bagpipes play and plane engines echo around her.

Burton told AnOther magazine: "The McQueen woman doesn’t want to feel casual. It’s not that kind of world. When you put on the clothes, they make you stand differently, feel differently. It was about how to do that but make it feel light. I’ve always been part of Lee’s romantic side, that’s what I love. Although there are elements of this collection that are quite dark, even sinister, there’s always a romance to it, a delicacy. Empowerment and protection: Working here, you always have to bring it back to Alexander."

Watch the haunting imagery unfold's like all your most seductive nightmares rolled into one...
