The enchanting new season collection from McQ Alexander McQueen is now available in store and online.
Spring/Summer saw us fully embracing fashion’s ladylike mood with feminine florals and sickly sweet pastel shades — albeit styled with an umbrella for the majority of the season! And now we are more than ready to put the edge back into our wardrobe with a touch of tough girl cool. Enter Sarah Burton, McQueen’s creative director, who hit hard with this visionary collection which could easily pass for mainline McQueen.
The line was inspired by the artistically dark 1967 film “Far From the Madding Crowd”, which was set in rural Victorian England, allowing Sarah to draw upon Britain’s rich and rustic heritage. And the result is everything we could hope for from the rebellious brand that last year had us reaching for the safety pins!
With timeless silhouettes at the core, McQ offers breathtaking prints that are a guaranteed way to wow. Hungry wolves hidden in a fiery print give drama to the classic shift shape. These snarling beasts are deserving of soaring heels and a confident after-dark prowl!
Or look to artfully crafted lace prints in burnt out neutral tones to reflect dark gothic glamour of centuries past. For now, team with bare legs and spike heeled ankle boots for a transitional look that means business.
