Alexander McQueen

Menswear spring 12

The look Flamboyant rock ‘n’ roll with a rebellious Savile Row charm, inspired by the English rock icons of the 1960s, from
mod looks through to care-free bohemia and red velvet dandyism.

Key pieces There were nods to the 1960s and early 1970s via lean suit jackets and cropped straight-leg pants in clashing checks and stripes, skinny mod bomber jackets, sb velvet blazers and silk pyjama-style pants, foppish shirts with flyaway neck ties, long flowing trench coats and eccentric mix and match three-piece suits.

Colours Black and white with hits of red and yellow, mellowed out with dusty pinks and inky blues.

Commercial appeal This was Sarah Burton’s interpretation of smart tailoring, which sits well within spring 12’s rocker direction. Her use of checks and pattern play should translate for directional markets.
