ALEXANDER MCQEEN’S LATEST MEN’S COLLECTION CONTINUES TO EXPLORE ANATOMY
This season, Alexander McQueen is all about refined simplicity. Focusing on cut, proportion and silhouette, the brand continues the exploration of anatomy, now softer, more moulded and curved than in previous seasons.
Tailoring in traditional wools is constructed with a rounded or a neat, sharp shoulder and a narrow waist. Overcoats, trench coats, parkas, leathers, denim, shirts and shorts, all worn with knee boots are grounded with utility detailing. Clothing is knotted around the body creating the illusion of seamlessness.
Ceremonial embroidery and soft appliquéd harnessing are inspired by archive McQueen while the three-dimensional hand-crocheted knit and chiaroscuro flowers inspired by Dutch Old Master paintings. An abstract fold print, developed by long-time McQueen collaborator, Simon Ungless, extends into jacquards and embroideries, wrapping the body – the anatomy – within.
