Alexander McQueen releases womenswear Pre Fall 2020
British art nouveau and arts and crafts, the restrained elegance of modernism: the sinuous iris, the proud thistle and The Glasgow Rose. The windswept earth and Northern landscapes laid bare. The core of the earth and the treasures hidden beneath its surface. Metal ores: rich seams of gold, silver and copper running throughout. Mineralogy: crystal, agate, flint, rock; opaque and sculptural on the outside, jewelled and reflective within. The juxtaposition between sobriety and seduction, the raw and the refined, the textured and the smooth, the light and the dark, all contrasts true to the handwriting of the house of Alexander McQueen.
