Alexander McQueen draws on tat­too, nau­ti­cal theme

The China Post - - ARTS -

The Alexander McQueen la­bel took cen­ter stage at Lon­don’s fash­ion week for men on Sun­day with a col­lec­tion that drew heav­ily on tat­too art and nau­ti­cal themes.

The Alexander McQueen spring/ sum­mer 2016 show at Lon­don Col­lec­tions: Men showed off two-piece suits and pa­ja­mastyle out­fits.

Some of the pieces had a nauti- cal theme, with naval-style jack­ets.

Mod­els wore cre­ations with “wrestler jac­quard” prints, while there was plenty of royal blue on show along­side the tat­too-in­spired col­lec­tion, which fea­tured an­chors and com­passes on the sleeves.

Sarah Bur­ton be­came the brand’s cre­ative direc­tor in 2010, hav­ing worked along­side the la­bel’s late founder Lee McQueen for more than 14 years.

Sharp suits have been vy­ing with streetwear and top brands dur­ing this edi­tion of Lon­don’s men’s fash­ion week, which opened Fri­day with an eye on boost­ing ties with the lu­cra­tive luxury Chi­nese mar­ket.

Men’s fash­ion week, of­fi­cially known as “Lon­don Col­lec­tions: Men,” grew out of the larger wo- menswear event and is now in its sev­enth edi­tion, with 77 de­sign­ers on the main pro­gram.

Else­where Sun­day, there were shows by Tommy Hil­figer, Turn­bull and Asser, Dun­hill, House of Hol­land and Gieves and Hawkes.

The closing day’s sched­ule on Mon­day in­cludes shows by Jimmy Choo, Paul Smith, Tom Ford, Burberry Pror­sum and Xan­der Zhou.
