Alexander McQueen’s womenswear flagship on Bond Street will reopen on Friday September 13, the first day of London Fashion Week.
Set over two floors, the 2,690 sq ft shop designed by the late interior designer David Collins, who created the brand’s menswear store on Savile Row, will offer catwalk pieces, the ready-to-wear collection, accessories, shoes, bags and scarves.
The new store design features panelled walls covered in wings, shells, cactus flowers, seahorse tails, tangled leaves, skulls and gargoyles. Mirrors are gilded silver and gold and velvet-upholstered furniture has solid bronze animal feet in the shape of hooves and claws.
Sarah Burton’s concept for the Alexander McQueen flagship in New York will also reopen this month at 747 Madison Avenue, replacing the original flagship in the Meat Packing District. Set across 3,100 sq ft, it will stock men’s and womenswear, shoes, bags and have areas dedicated to accessories.
