Future of Alexander McQueen label remains unclear

PPR, the French luxury goods group that owns the Alexander McQueen and its diffusion McQ brands, said this morning that it would make no comment on the future of the fashion house at this time.

A spokeswoman for PPR told Drapers: “We are not commenting on the future of the label at this time.”

“I’m 40 now, but I want this to be a company that lives way beyond me, and I believe that customers are more important to making that happen than press.”

Fashion industry experts have cast doubt on whether the business, which is part of the PPR -owned Gucci Group, can continue to flourish without its founder, who was the driving force behind the label and an inspiration for his generation.

However, McQueen said in a prophetic interview published this week in LOVE magazine: “I’m 40 now, but I want this to be a company that lives way beyond me, and I believe that customers are more important to making that happen than press. When I’m dead, hopefully this house will still be going. On a spaceship. Hopping up and down above earth.”

Will the Alexander McQueen label live on beyond the designer’s death?
