Alexander McQueen SS2014 Show @ London Collections: Men

Yesterday at London Collections Men Fashion House Alexander McQueen presented its spring-summer 2014 colllection.

A dreamy, decadent and romantic collection unfurled, in true McQueen style, on a cobblestone catwalk underneath an abandoned railway track. There was manufactured mist, genuine weeds and grass sprouting beyond the dampened cobbles, and a mood of moth-eaten glamour.

Creative director Sarah Burton took the McQueen skull motif and worked it into a cotton lace for black or white frock coats that she paired with baggy shorts, a meeting of Marcel Proust and Los Angeles skater boy.

The lace, like a tangle of spiders’ legs, worked its way into sleeveless vest tops, which were also worn over the ubiquitous wide-legged shorts. Suits, their trousers cropped just above the ankle, were fashioned from fraying floral jacquards or made from cotton ticking embroidered with black roses.

About Alexander McQueen
Alexander McQueen was founded in 1992 by Lee McQueen where in less than 10 years he became one of the most respected fashion designers in the world.

Alexander McQueen shows are known for their emotional power and raw energy, as well as the romantic but determinedly contemporary nature of the collections. Integral to the McQueen culture is the juxtaposition between contrasting elements: fragility and strength, tradition and modernity, fluidity and severity. An openly emotional and even passionate viewpoint is realised with a profound respect and influence for the arts and crafts tradition. McQueen’s collections combine an in-depth working knowledge of bespoke British tailoring, fine workmanship and the impeccable finish of Italian manufacturing.

Sarah Burton joined the company in 1996 and was made Head of Womenswear design in 2000. Burton worked alongside Lee McQueen for more than 14 years and was subsequently appointed Creative Director of the brand in May 2010 following the passing of Lee McQueen in February 2010.
