Alexander McQueen Fall RTW 2011 and Sara Burton's "broken pottery" garments

 I am positive that more people will appreciate mosaic art after seeing this. Textiles made of smashed pottery, a mosaic technique often practiced today.

Read Vogue Review to find out more about the collection and the inspiration behind this and other pieces.

For more mosaic with broken tiles and china, you can check older posts on this blog Eco park garden, and mosaic e cards and in the meantime I am attaching some new images.

What do you think? Is there something you particularly like, prefer or even reject and dislike?

I would like to thank Little Augury for emailing me the link to McQueen collection.


  1. All I can say is WOW - totally amazing and absolutely fabulous!!!!! Thankyou, TK xx

  2. Η μόδα και η τέχνη έχουν πολλά κοινά!
    Τα ρούχα Alexander McQueen είναι μοναδικά στο είδος τους!
    Αντίστοιχα θαυμάζω και την ελληνίδα Mary Katrantzou, οι δημιουργίες της και τα υφάσματα της είναι πραγματικά έργα τέχνης!
    Πιστεύω εσύ με τις γνώσεις μπορείς να το αναγνωρίσεις και να το ερμηνεύσεις καλύτερα!
    Υπέροχη η ανάρτηση σου!

  3. you are so right, no thanks needed-but lovely to do so-her collection all round was heavenly, these pieces were I think brilliant. glad you liked them-of course-Knew You Would! pgt

  4. I was just admiring that fabulous dress! I love your selection of images, especially the first one and the Gaudi, of course. Ada

  5. That outdoor table is so charming! It's always been dream of mine to have a little wrought-iron outdoor set with a table top like that.

  6. AMAZING selection ... I totally agree with you in this post. I liked especially the flower pots and tray... Great post girl.

    Cheers and lots of smiles for you. ((((((((((((((-:

  7. Lovely round table, gorgeous post.

  8. Love that mosaic tiara... I am seriously wanting it right now. I have a serious weakness for tiaras. Gorgeous site.

    Keep calm & blog on,

  9. Σε ευχαριστώ πολύ για την σημερινή σου επίσκεψη και το όμορφο σχόλιο . Πάντα περνώ και βλέπω τις αναρτήσεις σου με τα υπέροχα μωσαικά έργα τέχνης αλλά για κάποιο περίεργο τρόπο δυσκολεύομαι να αφήσω μήνυμα , για αυτήν την ανάρτηση σου έχω ξαναγράψει και όπως παρατηρώ σήμερα χάθηκε , πολύ παράξενο !!!
    Καλό Σαββατοκύριακο να έχεις !!!

  10. I am glad you all loved this! Broken tiles can easily be labeled as "shabby", cheap solution for mosaic art but if used with sophistication, planning and passion they can be transformed into a true work of art!

    Little Augury, I think you should go for it (re: what we said on your blog)

    Katy, Ada, TK, Erica, Rhonya thanks for visiting! I am happy to see new people on Mosaicology.

  11. Dear Mag,
