Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2021 pre-collection
LookbooksAW20 MENS LOOKBOOK
Inspiration.. Northern landscapes. The windswept earth stripped bare: flint, rock, coarse earth and thistles. Art nouveau and arts and crafts: the restrained elegance of modernism. The organic abstraction of Henry Moore’s drawings. The dialogue between Alexander McQueen menswear and womenswear continues: heritage tailoring, uniform, hybrids and garment beetling.
“The collection is a love letter to women and to families, colleagues and friends. We went to Wales and were inspired by the warmth of its artistic and poetic heritage, by its folklore and the soul of its craft. The woman is courageous, grounded, bold: heroic. There is a sense of protection in the clothes, of safety and comfort, evoked through quilting and blankets. The hearts are a symbol of togetherness, of being there for others.” Sarah Burton Creative Director
LookbooksPre Autumn/Winter 2020
British art nouveau and arts and crafts, the restrained elegance of modernism: the sinuous iris, the proud thistle and The Glasgow Rose.
“Each look tells its own story. The connection between the clothes is the time it took to make them. I was interested in clarity and paring things down, in the essence of garments – stripping back to the toile. I love the idea of people having the time to make things together, the time to meet and talk together, the time to reconnect with the world.” SARAH BURTON CREATIVE DIRECTOR
