Alexander McQueen to launch men's underwear
Among the late Lee Alexander McQueen’s final projects was a men’s underwear collection which is set to hit stores worldwide in June.
According to reports, the designer, who took his own life last month, was involved in every stage of the latest brand extension, which had been licensed to Italy’s Albisetti.
Design details of the underwear range include skulls on the waistband of boxers and briefs and all-over prints of feathers, X-rays and a collage of bones also used in his last men’s runway collection, which was staged in Milan in January.
The collaboration with Albisetti is understood to be a long-term one deal which spans basic underwear, sleepwear and loungewear. A swimwear range will also be introduced next year.
Retail prices will range from £35 for basic boxer shorts up to £370 pounds for a silk jacquard pyjama set.
