Alexander McQueen launches Men’s Pre-AW20 collection
INSPIRED by heritage Alexander McQueen, the iconic house’s latest Pre-Fall 2020 Men’s collection is inclusive of sharp lines, signature shoulders and the ongoing exploration of the androgynous aesthetic.
Adhering to the classic yet innovative voice and tone of the luxury brand, renowned for British tailoring combined with haute couture, authentic fabrics are cut and spliced while slashes seams give prominence to meticulous suiting.
Comprising a refined curation of accessories, footwear and ready-to-wear pieces, the collection features explosions of signature floral embroideries re-imagined through the lens of an inspiration trip to Scotland, heavily drawing on the indigenous wildlife and the Scottish arts and crafts movement.
References to the natural world are further emphasised with the recurring addition of the house’s signature skull motif.
Highlights of the sweeping collection include a single-breasted sharkskin fresco wool mohair evening jacket, complete with square shoulders and gravelled floral garland embroidery to boast elegance and sophistication, a white organic poplin shirt with black engineered floral garland embroidery, and tailored trousers in Japanese wool gabardine with contrast dart detailing in ivory wool twill.
