Alexander McQueen

Autumn-Winter 2013/14 

The McQueen label made a triumphant return to London with a collection for men that carried opulent designs with malevolent connotations of danger and mystery.

The ominous music reverbed around the maze of rooms used to display the collection on Savile Row, a perfect setting for the brand celebrated for its bespoke tailoring. With that in mind, structured suiting fitted with wide and sharp collars came in pinstripe, like something from American Psycho before turning gothic with stained glass print that was reminiscent of Tudor surroundings and archaic churches. They were stunning, and were an introduction to the next phase, where suiting became deconstructed with quilt and military shapings on the cuffs and shoulders.

The more relaxed garments came in the form of dressing gowns and long coats that looked ceremonial in black and red whilst monochrome polo necks that elongated the neck proved to be the dressed down look when paired with trousers and extenuated shouldered blazers.

It was a great return for the label, and this collection brought them back forefront of British fashion, like they never left in the first place.
