This was a show so beautiful that the background for the lookbook photoshoot had to be blank, because anything else might have run the risk of overpowering the beauty of the clothes. Plus, the austerity of a whitewashed backdrop fit in with the puritanical theme.

This season, Sarah Burton took her inspiration directly from priestly vestments, nuns’ habits, and the severe black outfits of the Puritans. Featuring everything from medieval robes to 17th-century style buckled shoes, this collection was dramatic while still remaining entirely serious throughout. — Alexander McQueen, Pre-Fall 2013: Puritans, Popes, and Vampire Queens.
