Autumn 12

As McQ’s debut season showing on the London schedule, this was the hottest ticket in town and had all the theatre one would expect, with a leaf-covered catwalk leading to a dark, haunting forest. Sarah Burton is now the creative director of this diffusion line after the brand was brought in-house, and the accompanying new direction was a successful one. Decadent velvets, intricate embroidery and floral appliqué contrasted with the harsh nature of the styling and military influence. A strong emphasis was placed on accessories in this collection, with wide black belts that neatly nipped in waists and had chain details carrying on the military look from the khaki green overcoats and wool suits that opened the show. A sense of Scottish heritage was present – perhaps a nod to the late Alexander McQueen.
