Awesome lookbook alert! And this one from McQ by Alexander McQueen is more directional than all of ‘em— quite literally.
Channelling a ‘90s London punk aesthetic, a block arrow-print is featured throughout, transforming simple miniskirts and baggy joggers into sartorial statement-making pieces. Granted, a mandarin pair of MC Hammer pants doesn’t sound like the most versatile of wardrobe options, but somehow Sarah Burton and her magic touch make the combination look completely chic. Elsewhere, black dominates the collection, seen across asymmetric dresses and oversized tux jackets — all faultlessly executed — and teamed with crisp-white shirts, metallic pants, and chunky knits drawn in with under-bust belts.
For a new approach to details, how do you feel about buckles? Y’know, those ones from the ‘90s, that you drew in mid-thigh and upper-ankle. Thanks to McQ, they’re back. No, don’t be scared — embrace.
