London Collections: Men - Alexander McQueen AW13
There was a real sense of Britishness at Alexander McQueen as Sarah Burton brought its menswear to London for the first time. Borrowing from Savile Row, Burton embarked on a series of pinstriped pieces that slowly became more disconnected. Next came full looks printed with beautiful stained glass window patterns and patchwork tailoring that had a lounge vibe, only smarter. Colour came through in highlights in the glass shapes and an orangey red.
But for all the idiosyncrasies, Burton’s skill with tailoring was the big story.
In short Very much McQueen, down to the plastic face masks, so don’t go putting any money on this hitting the high street any time soon.
